    I left it behind once I started uni and ever since then I've walked out of all of my exams and just never thought about them again.
    I never did it with any of my other exams or coursework or anything. Only anatomy. I think because of the nature of the exam is really high pressure at the time, so the pressure followed me out of the lab.

    Well then you're hardly "doing Higher Politics" then, are you?



    Ask them to stick you in the back of a class, and let you work out of a book or whatever, since they don't want to mark it as "free periods" then. I did 4 subjects in 6th year; legit only had 1 timetabled class.
    You can then work on one of your non-timetabled Highers in that time.
    Saying I'll be studying political ideology though makes me sound old and grey haired though

    I never thought of asking them that, that might just persuade them! Thanks Hype, you're awesome

    Edit: I would give you some pos rep but I've reached the limit for today

    What exams did you sit?
    Advanced Highers in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. Higher Physics

    What were you predicted for your exams?
    AAA/A

    How do you feel your predictions will compare to your actual results?
    There's not a chance in hell I'll get my predictions. AH Chem and Maths exams were hell, Bio wasn't much better. I thought of physics as a free period for the entire year so there's no hope.

    How are you feeling about results day?
    It doesn't bother me, I've got an unconditional and I'm away on holiday the same day.

    How are you receiving your results?
    Email I think, then post.

    What are your next steps?
    Away to Uni in September

    What exams did you sit?

    I had a very easy year, H Geography, H Media Studies, Int 2 Maths

    What were you predicted for your exams?

    AAA, but I'm feelings more ABA respectively

    How are you feeling about results day?
    Totally fine, I already have my place at University so my grades don't really matter this year. I still want to do well though, for my pride's sake.

    How are you receiving your results?
    Through text and email and post, hahaha.

    What are your next steps?

    Starting Glasgow Uni in September to study Psychology

    • What exams did you sit? Higher:Biology,Chemistry,Physics ,Maths &English
    • What were you predicted for your exams? Not sure about Predictions but in my first set of prelims I got Biology A, Chemistry B, Maths B, Physics C, English C
    • How do you feel your predictions will compare to your actual results?
    • Well I sincerely hope I have done better in my actual exams, Maths is actually meant to be my best subject but the first prelim was extremely difficult, all the usual top students didn't get above the 80% mark which is saying something, the final mathematics exam had a bit of a trick question where it asked you to factorise something and it wasn't factorisable so I was just sitting there like, they've written the question wrong and I also missed out the last 7 mark question as I didn't see it, yes I am that silly. As for everything else think I got Biology A, Chemistry B, Physics C and English C
    • How are you feeling about results day (nervous, excited, etc.)? Yeah nervous yet excited as I got a real nice surprise last year for my standard grades
    • How are you receiving your results (post, email, text)? By post, I'd hate to get them by email or text, like opening up the official thing, although last year my brother was the first person to see my results and he read then out to me. This year I'm opening them myself and if they are okay I might tell people them hehe.
    • What are your next steps (Highers, university, etc.)? Well for 6th year I am doing advanced higher Biology, Int 2 Psychology and higher modern studies. Then i would like to go to university, I really really want to get into Edinburgh uni as I live in Edinburgh, my brother got 2 A's and 2 B's in 5th year and was rejected from Edinburgh, so seems pretty tough to get in. If not Edinburgh, definitely Heriot Watt. Heriot Watt also having a horse riding club which competes, so at least I won't miss out on that if I don't get into Edinburgh.
    • Hope everyone else gets better than they hoped for and gets into a good uni. Might even meet some of you next year, I'm planning on studying Biology at uni.
    • P.s sorry I can't seem to get rid of these fricken bullet points

    This year is the final year of SQA results for me!

    AH Chemistry, AH Biology, H French
    Predicted: AAA
    Hoping I meet the predictions
    Haven't really been thinking about results day much at all! Quite relaxed.
    It's by far the least stressful for me and I'm actually mainly thinking about my brother's standard grade results than mine!
    Receiving my results via post, email and text

    Uni in September! Super excited!!!
    Luckily got an unconditional offer, so I can confidently say for once - medicine, here I come!

    Doesn't it state that you can only write in black and blue ink unless it is maths or graphics or the questions states it ?

    Its cool, my teacher said if you write in pencil it forces them to hand mark it.
    They wont bin it or anything, they will just be annoyed.

    What exams did you sit?

    Higher maths, english, chemistry, biology and geography

    How do you feel your predictions will compare to your actual results?

    i'm predicted to get AAAAB or AAAAA but considering how difficult all my exams were this year, i think my grades will be BBBCC or below.

    How are you feeling about results day (nervous, excited, etc.)?

    bricking it. so petrified i can't even explain. these results are so important yet i know i've done so badly, it's a crushing feeling.

    How are you receiving your results (post, email, text)?

    all of 'em. last year i got my email results before 1am, text at 3am and post at like 1pm because the postie decided to be super late.

    What are your next steps (Highers, university, etc.)?

    if i get the grades i need: advanced higher biology, chemistry, statistics and int 2 physics. applying to university for 2015 entry and taking a gap year.

    if i dont: advanced biology plus whatever resits/other highers i need for my back up course at university and applying for 2014 entry.

    good luck everyone
