    I've been reading free manga :fluffy: The 7th seems so, so far away though :cry:
    I've been borrowing manga off my friend. She's currently doing an apprenticeship and only gets two weeks off this summer, so she doesn't mind me stealing all her books. Hehe.

    I've noticed that since I got an unconditional, I no longer care about my exam results this year.
    Despite having an unconditional for my course next year (a HNC rather than a degree) I'm still anxious about my results.

    Agreed ! With above

    I'm finding it hard to find other females who are applying for engineering(entry 2013) don't get me wrong I don't mind males but it would be nice to have maybe one or two other females in lectures

    My brother does engineering and there are a few other females who also do the course. One thing I do know, is that engineering is becoming more popular with females

    Are any other people starting highers concerned they have forgotten a lot of their subjects? Like, for me, Maths and Chemistry knowledge has probably went right out of the window. Just there I was thinking of the neutralisation reactions and I was unsure of them! How on earth will I cope?

    I was unsure because I am the only girl applying for engineering with about 6/7 boys most females focus on teaching and medicine or law in our school I felt alone for a moment

    There is still time between now and when school goes back. Read over your SG notes and you'll be fine come August.

    What parts in standard grade Chemistry, Physics and Maths should I read over, as I know many of SG is irrelevant in Higher. Thanks

    Also, what's higher history like? I'm dreading the fear of the unknown as I didn't do standard grade!

    I found a lot of what I learned at SG was still relevant at Higher. If not in content then definitely in the skills we learned.

    I haven't done chemistry or maths since SG and never took physics, so I can't recommend anything specific. ^^; But for other subjects I mostly read over the basics, anything I thought would come up the next year and I re-read old essays paying attention not to the content of them but rather how they were answered.


    Most of my friends in school claimed that history was their most demanding Higher - not because recalling information was difficult but because of the amount that needed to be written to get the marks. I didn't take it past SG myself so can't say whether or not I'd agree with that.

    Lucky for some..........

    I totally forgot about pending exam results till I saw this thread. Now I'm nervous, I'm not even sure why Another reason to thank TSR.

    I have a question. How unpredictable are Higher English results. A lot if people are saying they can't tell how well they are going to do. To what extent is this true? What tips do any of you have to make sure that you know and will come out with an A?

    I want to apply for dentistry too! What were your standard grade results and prelim results?

    Thanks Another budding dentist!

    woo
    I got seven 1's/A's and a 2 (in chemistry ) and an A in a Higher for my actual results last year, with it being pretty much the same as my prelims except I think I got another 2 in them
    this year for my prelims I didn't work as hard as I should've and I got ABBCC but after a couple of second prelims I overall got AAACC

    I wouldn't worry too much, some people will probably be crashing the subjects and when you go back it'll probably all start coming back to you.

    So, pop-quiz. How are you planning on opening your results - with family? With friends? Alone!?

    probably alone! Last year, I totally forgot about SG results day and when I left the house in the morning, it came as a complete surprise to me! I think opening the envelope alone relieves a lot of the pressure present when someone is watching you, with high expectations

    I'd like to open it with friends, because we'd all be on the same boat - but they're all hesitant about my idea. I will open them alone, but my family will probably be standing outside my bedroom door!

    My Dad actually asked me if I wanted him to open the results. What a crazy idea!

    Alone. Then will likely be immediately hounded by my mother who will have already prepared her, "At least you passed" speech for if I get C's. :rolleyes:

    Would love to do it with friends but I went to a college an hour and a half away from home (by train) and none of my friends in the local area are expecting results.

    Alone. Just, forever alone.
