You will be examined in listening in an exam in May. It might seem hard to revise for listening, because you don’t know what to revise. But if you remember that listening is basically a skill, it becomes clearer. You can improve your skills by practising.
Firstly, you can buy past papers to help you, and for reading that is great as you will also get the marking scheme, but for listening you only get the text and the question paper. However, if you do buy the booklet, then ask your teacher to make you a copy of some past papers, which you can then use. Alternatively you can find some past papers on the SQA website.
For listening, past papers will really help, as you can follow the text and listen to it, and get used to hearing and understanding things! Listening to any audio you have the script for will do the same thing. For example, the text and the audio from the 1100 News on BBC Radio nan Gàidheal is made available on a daily basis and can be used. Ask your teacher if you can copy CDs, audio files, or tapes you use in school to listen to at home.
