    ITT: Talk about anything concerning 5th/6th year, applying to UCAS, College and Uni requirements and offers, Prefect/Head boy/Head girl duties, Essay and NAB deadlines, remembering those who chose to leave us temporarily and permanently, and general discussion about how Highers, Advanced Highers, and life in general are all going.

    SQA Results 2009 (where it all began)

    Chat Thread #5 (before moderator split)
    Chat Thread #5 (after moderator split)


    The previous thread has been torn asunder, its two parts locked away to protect mere mortals from the power they contain, and now we journey onward into the unknown. Join me, comrades!

    This is Chat Thread #6. We've always been at war with Eastasia.

    Given how broken that 'after moderator split' thread is, perhaps the 10,000 post limit exists for a reason :p:

    Probably not. :puppyeyes: I just felt it was a job for an old-timer.

    From the SQA Results 2009 thread:

    Shamefully, we're saying goodbye to some people like TheUnbeliever, Meteorshower and some others (please say in case I haven't mention your name), so it won't be the same next year.

    We got a hold of a school yearbook from 2006-2007 today. That's the year we started school, and seeing all my mates' siblings and the folk I used to see around was just quite surreal, it doesn't feel like we were that far apart from them. Especially weird when I think that they've all been through uni and gotten jobs now...

    If any of you kiddies are doing Higher English and studying The Cone Gatherers, you might be interested to know that the King's Theatre in Edinburgh is putting on a production of it in October. Now why would you want to pass up that opportunity?

    (Probably applies more to those who might be doing it next year as seeing it on stage might help with remembering stuff).

    Does anyone here have any advice for gaining an A in Higher History? I'm in 6th year and crashing it,I'm getting A's and B's but I need an A. Its the source work mainly and remembering it all that I'm struggling with.

    I don't do History, but I stick short memorable facts (what happened after x, when was y) into a flashcard program like anki and go through them at the end of each day and it seems to work.

    I hate the Cone Gatherers. I'm hoping a question on other texts comes up so I don't have to do it in the exam.

    Hate it!? I did it for Higher English last year, pumped out plenty of 25/25 essays on it - it's a really easy text to analyse, and actually found it to be a really interesting novel. One of my favourite works of fiction, actually. :love:

    Oh no, I tend to do better with the Drama/Media texts compared to novels and poetry. I just got bored easily, then disgusted with the "doll bit" and I don't like obvious endings. That's just my opinion though, a lot of people in my class really enjoyed it.

    You aren't the only one.. I've been so used to just getting up and plodding along to school everyday at the same time to meet the same people. I'm kinda terrified to leave but I'm also excited

    things are going reasonably well. enjoying physics and some of the maths. struggling a bit with some parts of the maths course but hopefully i will get there. took astronomy as my outside course also, it has some interesting parts (black holes, supernova etc.) but has some boring parts also. astronomers seem to spend their lives measuring doppler shifts.

    Yeah I find it insane that people in the year above me at school could graduate this year. What about yourself? Got any plans once it's all over?
