    Less than a week now.

    I left school at 16 and didn't go to college until I was 20. I'm almost 23 now. I had a rough childhood and failed all of my GCSE's.

    However these last few years I've changed beyond recognition and college has made me a completely different person. I managed to get ABB last year in my Scottish Highers and this year I'm predicted AABB. Although English was a bit dodgy so it could end up being AABC. I need BBB for Stirling uni and ABBB for Aberdeen. I've never worked so hard in my life as I have in these past years. I have my heart set on uni now so even if I don't get in this year I will keep trying until I do.

    Good luck y'all.

    I really hope you pass!
    I know - last year I worked really hard for my Highers too,(dropped from 5 to 3) and was so nervous!
    What are you wanting to study?
    Good luck! :goodluck:

    Worried about English too, I thought I did okay but english is so subjective that I really don't know. Got a D in the Prelim (C if the folio is taken into account) Hoping for a B for time round.

    If it makes anyone feel any better about Higher English, I did it last year (5th year) and I thought I had totally failed the exam, because a lot of my year told me that I had done the wrong essays and not went for the obvious ones. I ended up with an A (somehow!) and they all got C's and D's, and even some No Awards. So you honestly can't tell with English but chances are you'll have all or most done better than expected!

    I knew all the information, and I was confident going into the exams. But I completely panicked :/
