I hope you have had a fantastic holiday. Unfortunately, the good times couldn’t last forever and your freedom is drawing to a close. This is just a gentle reminder that ALL pupils hoping to sit Higher or National 5 next year must submit a personal reflective or imaginative essay first draft on the first day back to the English teacher you had before the summer break.
There will be no exceptions to this rule and no extensions granted unless you have arranged it with me BEFORE the first day back. Failure to submit a piece will be taken into consideration when final levels of presentation are decided in the first week back.
Word Count reminder:
Higher – 1300 words maximum (650 minimum but you should be aiming for at least 1000)
National 5 – 1000 words maximum (500 minimum but you should be aiming for at least 800)
Try and have your essay typed and printed and make sure your name is on it. If you have any questions you can add a comment to this post and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible (make sure your name is on the post).
