    Yeah that's a really good idea, I know you are right!! Sometimes they.are a waste of time, good stuff, omg it wasn't the displacement one was it, yeay exact same as me I think 18/20

    i counted mines and i think i got 17or18/20 and yes it was the displacement one, i couldnt figure that one out haha .. that was a tricky little bliter.

    100% its a great higher, i wouldn't say it was my favorite, i usually like maths/physics but i just enjoyed that exam because there is no real answer as long as it has a knowledgeable answer whereas its either right or wrong in maths/physics if you get what i mean? but definitely give it a try!

    As long as I at least get AAABB for my Highers I'll be over the moon as I'll have the minimum requirements for the degree I want to do

    Maths and Computing were fairly easy, Physics was a bit of a challenge, Chemistry was nice for a chemistry paper and English was a pain in the tushie

    Easy. Higher Maths is essentially a glorified memory test with little to no problem solving whatsoever.

    Well yes, but it is much more noticeable in Higher Maths. My other Highers had problem solving questions (which actually arent the same every year) where you had to apply your knowledge. Maths, however, was just filled with KU meaning that if you learned the course well you could at least make a good effort with every question.
    I think the paper was fine this year.

    I'm hoping to do Maths and Physics at Glasgow. I think I have an A in maths, unless I didn't remember anything correctly from the exam when I went over the paper with my teacher. She was really great and had worked us really hard to get an A in Higher so I'll be disappointed if I don't as it's my best subject.

    ahhh lucky you!! what course you wanting to do?
    Biomedical Engineering :cute:
    Only two places in Scotland that run the course though (

    btw have u heard the reason why the exam was supposed to be particularly hard
    It's because it was a new team writing the papers after the fiasco last year. So it was just a different writing style/type of questions which no-one was able to be prepared for beforehand.
