A few of our P6 students did not get their SA1 results back while others, thankfully, received the breakdown of their components. Although papers were not returned, I was heartened to hear that a number of our P6 students had scored well for their oral component. A few had even scored full marks.

With the help of my P6 students this year, we have once again compiled a list of what they were tested on for their SA1 Oral. We hope that this list is useful to students in their revision for the Preliminary Oral.
