    So results' day is fast approaching! How are you all feeling for it? I remember how anxious I was coming up to all of mine. :afraid: Feel free to use this thread for all your results' day chat needs! Currently the GCSE and A-level students are putting us to shame with their level of chattiness.

    Fortunately, we've got some guidance for you all written up by a ScotQuals superteam here Otherwise what's everyone doing to cope with the wait!?
    I've not thought about them much because for me it's my 6th year results and i already have a uni place. I do remember though this time last year i was a nervous wreck. Good luck to all the people who just did their highers. Keep yourself busy with fun stuff to do and it will soon be results day.

    Im going to hear from text/email as well! but i think i might not open it and wait till post comes anyways! i found a mixture of the papers different, what i didnt like about this particular one you couldnt really do the other parts to the question without the other parts so you needed to know how to do part A to do part b, usually you can still pick up some marks on other parts of the Questions.

    I am also awaiting sixth year results and as much as I like to pretend that I'm not too fussed about them, I'm inwardly bricking it! Oh well, at least I will be free from the SQA.

    there definitely is a chance, im really hoping that a B is like 55% - the normal 60% ... that paper was stressing me out... apart from that exam i think i have done great on the rest.

    Finges crossed, that sounds possile too, they should really lower all boundaries by about five percent, btw have u heard the reason why the exam was supposed to be particularly hard

    Yeah im not into Advanced highers id rather have more highers to have a wider horizon of opportunities to more jobs/subjects and stuff and to be honest they aren't absolute necessary for university and higher education which they are mostly used for anyways. i found physics not too bad, there was a question that i completely skipped i think it was the second one in Section B ... and then a few at the end. apart from that Multiple choice was okay i think i got nearly full marks there. how about you?
