    Good luck with the Baccalaureate! I started it too but dropped it half way through the year.
    Thanks, i really wish i dropped it too as i only achieved a C on the project and i definitely think i deserved at least a B. Oh well what can i do now...

    I don't see why not. You'd get a conditional offer for what you will be doing in 6th year.
    Thank you, was not sure on whether I could have a chance.

    Good luck for tomorrow folks! I was just reminiscing about when SQA sent a lot of people's (mine included!) results by text a day early by mistake

    Here's hoping everything runs smoothly this year!

    Enough trying to wind people up about a fictional "postage delay". It's not funny to try to stress out already stressed people.

    I like how last year the postie pretty much folded mine in half despite it saying "Please Do Not Bend" all over the envelope :rolleyes:

    Well that was nice of him... I'd have probably sent my demoniacally possessed cat after him to let him burn. You can borrow her if he does the same thing with anything else...

    I really hate it when posties just ignore Do Not Bend or Fragile signs...

    Been wondering about this for a while now. This year I sat 6 Highers and I need at least AAAA/AAABB for the universities I want to apply to, so say if I get AAAACC or AAABBC would this still meet the requirements? And would AAAAAB be considered better than 5As?

    As long as you get at least those results, then you are fine. Therefore, for AAAACC you have 4A's in there and so that's fine. For AAABBC you have 3A's and 2B's and so that is also fine!

    AAAAAB would be better than 5A's but it doesnt really matter if you just need 5A's!

    Hope this help, and if you need any more help then please let us know!

    Good luck for tomorrow!

    I think it would if your condition was AAABB, also IMO AAAAAB would be considered better than 5A as you have sat an extra higher yet achieved A grades in 5 and you also have an extra higher B which will be thought of highly IMO

    It's difficult to say for all universities as a whole, but generally speaking either they are going to look at 'overall achievement' or 'five best Highers.' In both cases you would meet the requirements of a AAAA/AAABB course. If you want a more specific answer, you should email the university in question.

    Just as a tip, for some courses at Glasgow they basically do it on a first-come, first-served basis. So if you exceed the entry requirements and apply reasonably early - November/December there's a good chance of a place
    I know someone who got an unconditional the day after she sent off her UCAS so it's never a bad idea to apply early :L
    Thanks for the tip! That's definitely well worth knowing. I'm really raring to apply as it is haha!

    I'm sure you will, it'll be all good - are you getting them by post or email/text?

    If you are unsure about anything tomorrow then be sure to drop a post and we can assure you. Don't forget UCAS will be open from 8am I believe, and so if you don't have results by then, if it says UF or Accepted then you are also all good!

    Good luck!

    Email/text but haven't decided if I'll stay up for the email or not yet. I'm getting my 5th year results so I haven't applied through UCAS yet but thanks

    That's to drown the pain after you receive the exam results. And if they are good to celebrate with :awesome:

    Does anyone remember what time the emails and texts came in last year? My brother who sat exams a few years ago said the emails were around 3-4am and the text later, good luck everyone
