    Does anyone know the percentages for getting As for Highers this year?
    I got Bs in French, Biology and Chemistry and I'm not sure if I should get the papers remarked or not.
    You can find them online, just type in sqa grade boundaries 2014.

    The way I see it you have nothing to lose by requesting a re-mark!

    The mark can go down as well as up.

    I suppose so, but you should be given your actual mark beforehand.

    If you are one mark off a B for example then the SQA would of had to make big mistakes to overestimate you by 10 marks or something.

    Yeah. There's only point in asking for a remark when you are close to the grade above

    Exactly, im relatively close to a B in physics (4 marks away!). I didn't satisfy my uni condition on account of four marks! Im not sure if its worth a re-mark 4 marks may be close but it's a lot of marks to find in a re-mark :L

    Really annoyed. I got 2 As (Geog and Info system) and 3 Bs (histoy, maths and english). Just found out today that I got 71% in maths so only 1% off an A and I got 69% in history so 2% off an A. Still don't know my english as I got a low B but not been given my break down. Can't believe how close it was. So annoying that on your certificate it doesn't show your percentage to show how close you were from an A Got enough for primary school teaching and Psychology at most universities so just got to hope I get in with that

    I'm not completely sure as of yet. Been flinging loads of ideas around my head. Right now I like the sound of studying economics. What about you?

    Physics and chemistry are my thing, I'd collapse at the sight of an operation- I couldn't even last a day in a vet surgery

    Can I ask what grade on your instruments you are because if you are grade 5 or above honestly do adv music it is the exact same as higher only you have a few more minutes in your repertoire and compositions and an analytical commentary it seriously is not that different...think about it, please?
    if you do not want to fair enough but it is near enough the same course

    I hope physics and chemistry, specializing in possibly quantum physics or just physics and physical/ organic chemistry.

    How about yourself?
