    I'm so nervous! I'm waiting to find out if I've met my conditions and it is a stressful experience.
    I studied Advanced Higher English and Higher German, History, and Maths this year and basically I need 2 B's to get into Dundee Uni for English and Creative Writing.
    I did well in the prelims, but that doesn't stop me from worrying myself sick. Last year didn't go so well for me... I only got 2 A's and the rest were fails after I had a rocky year. I know some of you might say it's still good but at the time I was only thinking of Uni entry requirements and the fact that people kept saying I was going to be fine.
    Well, it's the same scenario this year. I've had a better year (no more science subjects for me!) but it's so nerve-wracking when people say "oh you'll be fine." Does anybody else go through that? I never know how to react. It's like I've got to meet everybody's expectations and so I am bricking it for these results.
    You know what's frustrating though? I was okay after I sat the exams - the papers were alright for me... but as the day gets closer and closer, that anxiety just creeps in and aarrgghh!

    Sorry... I tend to ramble a lot !!

    i have a mixture of feelings because to think the teachers/ucas have them now and are making decisions is nerve racking and in general really just anticipating the best, maths for me was bloooooodyyyy harddd.

    This is going to be my first results day so I'm a bit nervous. English is probably the one which I have no idea about though :/

    So is this delay in the Glasgow area thing all bosh then? Because I live in Glasgow and don't know if I should be getting my results on the 5th or the 7th now.

    People who did Nat 4s should get certificates as well.

    It's complete *******s. We've known for years that the Commonwealth Games are going to be in Glasgow, and the SQA are not so amateurish that they won't have prepared for any potential delays it might cause. You'll be getting your results tomorrow.

    What delay? As far as I know, there is no delay expected anywhere. You should get your results tomorrow.

    Thanks, that puts my mind at ease! People on this thread were saying that there's a postage delay because of the Commonwealth Games and, as a result, we should be getting the results on the 7th but I'm glad to know that's all bosh! Pretty mean joke, tbh.

    I didn't sit it, and TBH I was never very good at Maths anyway, so I'm not the person to ask. I can say it didn't get the "this is the hardest exam ever" comments online that Maths particularly usually gets, so I'm assuming most people were okay with it.
