    So to all you fifth and sixth years currently stressing about your dreaded exams

    1.What subjects are you sitting?
    2.What grades do you want?
    3.What grades do you think you'll get?
    4. (Uni applicants) what are your conditions?

    So applied to me;
    1.Higher Biology, Higher Modern Studies and Higher Philosophy
    2.ABB
    3. Probably something like BCC maybe BBC
    4. BB (achieved AAAC in my 5th year)

    Good luck to you all

    Firstly, good luck to you!

    And secondly, I am also in 5th year so therefore I've not got to the Uni stage yet (although I want to go to Edinburgh Uni).

    1. I was originally sitting Higher Art and then dropped it for Higher Human Bio thinking it would make me look academically better, and then dropped that after literally failing everything in the class. So now I am only sitting Higher English, History, Modern Studies and Int 2 Spanish (Higher didn't fit into my timetable :emo:)

    2. I hope AAAA seeing as I'm now down to 3 Highers.

    3. Spanish will without a doubt be an A (90% in the prelim), whilst I think I'll probably end up with a B for English, although I am determined to get A's in History and Modern Studies! But that ooks like it won't be happening any time soon since I've not started proper revision yet... :rolleyes:

    Yup same thing happened to me in my 5th year. I took Higher Geography, Higher History, Higher French, Higher English and stupidly picked Higher Biology for the same reason as you. Totally failed it haha. I think I got something like 26% at the prelim. But anyways good luck

    I probably should be panicking, but I'm not.


    1. Media Studies (Higher) & Philosophy (Int 2).
    2. AB.
    3. Media either A or B. Philosophy will depend on the questions.



    I'm not in 5th/6th year (actually, I dropped out of 6th year a month into it). I can't believe I'm sitting only two exams this year and the SQA decided to put one of them (media studies) on my 20th birthday! :mad: At least they were nice enough to make it an afternoon exam so I can have a lie in...

    I revised so hard for my prelim and ended up with a C as well :/ I did decent on my essays (well, really good for me) and got 15 and 17, but then I majorly bombed my close reading

    Haha, I don't get it either. I dropped down from the Higher in March after failing the metaphysics NAB by 2 marks (and missing the resit - thanks ScotRail! :mad:) but it was a wonder I passed anything up until that point anyway. The only things I really get are critical thinking and moral philosophy. :P I'm doing the Hume unit instead of Descartes.

    Yeah critical thinking isn't too bad. I messed up metaphysics at the prelim really badly but luckily the nab questions suited me and I got 13/20. I've got a twin brother who did it last year and got an A, but when I ask for help he's misteriously 'forgotten' it all

    I got a B at my prelim but thats only because we got hints on what to revise. I left the exam thinking that I failed it but luckily I did just scrape a pass I'm sure you'll do fine, just don't panic when you look at the close reading. Thats what I did and I couldn't think straight for that whole paper.
