A bit of prelim positivity

Bonjour to the Highers!

I don't want people feeling worried about their prelim marks if they are not what they expected.  Here are a few things to bear in mind:

1.  The Listening/Writing paper is the hardest one and that was a hard paper.  The overall picture will look brighter when you add in the Reading/Directed Writing grade and your Talking mark in March.
2.  It's 30 marks out of 100, there are still two papers to go that play more to people's strengths.
3.  You sat a difficult paper in December, think how much better you will be in May!
4.  With continued hard work, most people go up a grade from the prelim as their French skills continue to develop.
5.  I have known LOTS of pupils who have failed the prelim and gone on to do really well in the final exam.

Don't whatever you do lose confidence or let it get you down.  I know you are working hard and talented in French.  All the potential is there and with continued hard work, you WILL get there!

Bonnes vacances and dinnae stress :)
