    I'd read this, you could think about a clerical check or a marking review, you'd have to discuss these with your school.

    Thanks yeah I do something to celebrate about. My parents kept convincing me that they were good too and that they are proud which helps. Yeah I've got a lot of options with 5th and 6th year so I'm going to be looking forward to that.

    What I'm sort of nervous about is that my Biology teacher has said a few times in the past that for Higher Human Biology (which is just Higher Biology in my school I think.) that you need a High B or an A so I'm not quite sure if I'm going to be able too.

    So yeah medicine isn't all there is and thanks for your help and nice words. If I don't get into Higher Biology, oh well, I at least have the good grades for my Higher Computing and maybe do something that I really do love too.
    Mhmm, great positive attitude you've got.
    You're 16, you've got all the opportunity in the world ahead of you still. Best of luck.

    Yeah, I really thought I hadn't got in because I never met the conditions I needed 1 B but ended up with a ton of C's! I had told my mum last night that I never got in and now she's over the moon! It says that track was updated on the 31st of July which was before the results and that was when the unconditional offer was made!!
    Oh woooaaah! That's fantastic! So far ahead as well, they must've liked your application. That's amazing. Definite story for the TSR "wall of success".

    Yeah it just came in! So happy got AAABB and took Nat 4 Maths so all is well. Especially since I failed my Physics prelim and got a B in the end.
    Fantastic job, mate! You must be so happy with that B in Physics. :grin:

    Afraid it's not that simple, mate. It depends on the context! One's "better" than the other in certain situations.

    Have a look at our SQA Results Service thread. All nicely explained there.

    The A at Higher, because I like As and it opens more opportunities for applying to uni in Scotland.

    I swear you ask these questions every year!

    I'd just like to thank the SQA for lowering the Higher English A boundary to 65%, it's probably the only reason I got an A
    Oh, anytime. It was a pleasure.

    Higher Maths: A

    Higher Chemistry: B
    Higher Physics: B
    Int 2 English: A

    Was severely disappointed with Chemistry, I found the paper the easiest out of all my exams and was expecting a comfortable A, and the reverse with Maths, I was expecting a C or B but ended up with an A which was great but I can't stop thinking about Chemistry as I really needed an A.

    Why do you need an A in Chemistry so badly, bud? Those are good grades!

    Higher History - B
    Higher English - B
    Higher Modern Studies - B
    Higher PE - C
    int 2 Maths - D

    Pretty disappointed with those results, tbh. I want to go to uni to study history, but with those results that prospect is looking unlikely.

    Why so disappointed, mate? Can still go off to do history with grades like those - just need to do some work in 6th year as well.

    I did three part time highers and for the prelim for Art and Design I had an A but for all three exams I got a D! I'm contacting my tutors to get a remark. I believe this must be a mistake because my tutors all expected I would get much higher than a C and kept reassuring me that I would do well. I especially find it hard to believe that I would get a D in Art and Design considering the fact I've completed a foundation course in art and design with merit grade. I need at least a C in English for my offer at Gray's school of art. This is so frustrating. Hopefully I'll know more once they do a remark. I'm from the netherlands so I've never done highers before. Scottish universities dont accept my havo diploma so last year I decided to do both a foundation course and three highers to get into uni. Now it all feels like I've wasted a lot of time and money
