Prelims 2017

Shortly after next term begins, exams in all subjects will take place between Monday 16th and Friday 27th January with most coinciding with the times of the normal school day.

In a small number of subjects ‘exam booster’ sessions have been scheduled before Nat 5 exams, providing an opportunity to re-visit the structure and timings of these exams before entering the exam hall. Exam boosters have proved very successful in other schools, helping students to feel calm and reassured before sitting their exams. Should they be well received by students at Portobello High School, they could be used more widely during the May exam diet.
