We support you through the course in a number of different ways:
- YouTube – Here we have created a range of YouTube playlists for a variety of topics at N4/5 and CfE Higher levels – we’ve only selected videos we feel are worthwhile and you would benefit from watching. There are also playlists for exam revision skills, map work and exam strategies. Hit subscribe as these will be updated periodically.
- Prezi – For each topic you will find a revision Prezi. Use these before, after or during your revision to help with exam style questions, revision for assessments alongside your class notes.
- Edmodo – End of topic and exam revision checklists as well as other materials will be shared via Edmodo, please see Mrs Stephen or Mr Simpson for the latest group ID’s.
