S3 Assessment Dates 2019

S3 pupils will be involved in assessment opportunities from 20th February to 10th May 2018. A few assessments will take place in the Assembly Hall to ensure pupils have some experience of an assessment environment in the hall. Other assessments will continue to take place in class. Your child has a study plan to complete to help to plan for the assessments.

 The Scottish Government has also introduced standardised assessments in S3. Your child will complete three SNSA assessments: one in reading, one in writing and one in numeracy. Your child will not have to revise or prepare for the ‘SNSA’ assessments. The assessments are used as part of routine teaching and learning to help teachers understand how well your child is progressing and to plan next steps.

Applications for the Medic Insight Week Programme open on Monday 25/2/19 and will close on the 10/03/19 at midnight. The link to the application form will be posted on the FaceBook page ( on Monday morning. We encourage you all to follow this page for the most up to date information regarding the programmes we offer.


We would like to remind all students  that applications are usually very competitive, so should take time when filling out the form (treating as a practice for applications to Medicine should prove useful to them and also increase chances of being successful). Also, as places are very competitive there are many high quality applications which may be unsuccessful, but this should not deter them from applying to Medicine!


We wish all candidates good luck and welcome any questions you may have.
