S4 subject-specific NAB and prelim dates
Here’s an important reference tool for parents of S4’s. It’s available on the school website in Word format, but this has been failing to load correctly on some devices, particularly the hand-held type. While that glitch gets fixed here it is, in pdf. A ‘NAB’ (for ‘National Assessment Bank’ of exam questions) is a unit assessment at Intermediate and Higher level. There are three in each subject area. The prelim is the dry-run for the final exam, normally taken after all the NABs are done. Your student is not required to sit the prelim, but the prelim can serve as the final exam if something goes terribly wrong on final exam day. (Highers pupils also need prelim scores for grade estimates in university applications.)
