    Everyone thinks I'm crazy for doing English but I love it Will need to hit the ground running this year though...
    I thoroughly enjoyed AH English this year; it's far better than higher and it's a lot more about your own opinions and reading and less about word choice and analysis

    Congrats to everyone on their grades! I got A at Advanced Higher Chemistry and Advanced Higher Biology but B at Revised Higher Physics, which was really strange as I was one of the few at top of the class in Physics but was really struggling in Chemistry and Biology. So slightly annoyed at my B, well very annoyed, and very chuffed with my As. I do have 2 queries. On my certificate from SQA Physics is just down as Higher not Revised Higher, is it normal to miss off the Revised? What do the SCQF Credit Points mean and how can I have 8 points when the SCQF Level is 7?

    First of all, congrats on your amazing results

    I would imagine they would leave out Revised on your certificate because for future reference no one is going to know what revised meant then There is the course code anyway to match up to the exact course spec.

    Credit points are basically an indication of the amount of learning, whereas the SCQF level is the level of difficulty. Don't worry too much about this, but for an AH course there are 32 credit points - 8 for each unit and 8 for the exam. AHs are level 7 qualifications, Highers are level 6, and N5s/Credit/Int2 are level 5.

    You can read more about the parts of the certificate in our article: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...anding-the-SQC

    Well Done to everyone! Now I'm gonna be starting to be supporting everyone else. lol. As I have been through all three Results Day... lol. Not many people have done that before have they not! Probably because I live in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis but formerly lived in Warrington in the North West of England. Next year it's back to College!

    And what about a Glasgow. They have no minimum but "standard" requirement is 5A's. And its my home city
    Congrats to everyone who done well in their exams and got what they hoped for

    Still plenty of chance for medicine with AAAAB - it's the rest of your application that's going to make the difference now!

    Glasgow will consider widening access students, people with extenuating circumstances, etc. with less than AAAAA - but they don't publish that on their website! You'll have to get in touch with them to see if they'd consider you.

    If it's a standard requirement then they will also make an offer based on interview with you and how much they like you! My advice is to absolutely nail any interviews you may have, but it's also worth having a back up option (you will be able to get one) just in case it doest work out.

    Best of luck, let me know if you need anything!
