    I got 65% on the specimen paper. What is that as a grade?
    65% is being accounted as just a high c and band 5 on the sqa guideline. hope this help.

    No offense but that's nonsense. Considering an A for Nat 5 physics last year you needed 68% and for higher it was 64%. So 65% could be counted as a high B. Also the grade boundaries will never be at 65% for a C that's far too high.

    Yeah I agree with Ross.

    Where are you getting this info from? Most subjects actually set the grade boundaries to be at notional values like 50% for a C and 70% for an A. Obviously these most likely will not stay the same depending on the exam.

    What is a logic gate ? If its Nat 4 shouldn't Nat 5 know it ? I don't

    The difficulty of the Nat 5 physics this year will probably be the same as last year. The grade boundaries are usually close to each other like between 68-70% for an A so that's why I'm saying 65% is a high to Mid B. For a B I'm saying 59/60% and for a C probably 50/51%.

    Omg if 65% was a C i probably failed all my subjects already!

    Gave me quite the scare there...

    Nope there's a greater chance of 65% being an A then there is it being a C haha.

    Never heard of logic gates before. Its in the Standard Grade Course though if you wanna take a look?

    I wouldnt worry too much about it though.

    Mixed emotions about this exam.

    I've been doing the past papers and model papers and have been doing well, But I'm a bit cautious with the SQA this year. Most of the exams (especially Maths) have been surprising in a way. Even Chemistry to an extent, a lot of new styled questions were asked this year.

    Just hoping all goes well tomorrow.

    No, they are different courses and have different content. Some topics like Ohm's law appear in both but sound, transformers, logic gates are examples of Nat4 stuff that's not in Nat5.
