    At last I found out - I think they had been sent to my school yesterday but they checked them before they gave them out.
    I haven't actually seen my teacher yet but he saw my friend last period and asked her to let me know.

    I got my appeal, Higher Biology from a B to an A - I'm so happy and relieved!

    Well done to those who have been successful.

    I am really getting frustrated now... I have waited so long that I am almost beginning to lose hope.

    Still no answer from our school, despite the odd person saying they had come in- I asked both my teachers who said nothing had been given to them.

    I guess I will just have to continue pestering my teachers until I have confirmation.

    P.S. - If you are unsuccessful does your teacher not notify you that this is the case or something- and this is why I haven't heard.

    Has anyone received confirmation about appeals for Higher French or Higher English- as these are the ones I appealed for.


    Wish I could finally relax and not have to keep thinking and waiting.

    I got two of my appeals Chemistry from C to B and History from B to A (which i was absolutely sure wouldn't go through - I only got 71% in the prelim!) I just really wish I got Biology :/ no one in my school got their higher biology appeal.

    Alleluia...lol

    Finally found out today about my appeals.

    Got my English from a B to an A but didn't get my French up to a B from a C. - Has anyone been successful in languages.

    I am just so glad that I have another 'A'

    Good luck to all those who are still waiting.

    I got my English appealed from a B to an A! So relieved! I got 80% in the prelim but had a horrible exam result - only achieving 55% overall (including a meagre 60% for my folio when I was predicted 86%... ). But thankfully I needn't get myself down about that any longer!

    My friend got an appeal from a C to a B in Gaelic (she achieved an A in her prelim).

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. MySQA will be updated by the end of November and this is also when we will send updated certificates where an appeal has been successful.

    Are you able to appeal the band of a result? i have an offer for A1A1A2 at advanced higher for uni, and was wondering what i can do. Since it is not an official grade, I am thinking it's not possible. Would they be able to make an exception for me if I were to be even one mark short of an A1?

    well most people have 2 years for standard grades and dont get seven ones. i suppose it depends on what subjects they are.

    Hey, have a question about appeals. If you get a 'B' at intermediate 2 biology but then go on to get an 'A' at higher biology would the SQA change your intermediate grade to an 'A' or would it remain the same?

    It would remain the same. Your certificate has a date of award beside each grade, so it only reflect the grade you achieved on that date regardless of you achieving a more advanced level later on.

    That depends on the subject. If you google 'SQA grade boundaries 2011' you will see what last years were.
