    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.
    that sounds great !! Im sure you'll have your A, it was my best subject too until I sat the final exam haha :L

    Biomedical Engineering :cute:
    Only two places in Scotland that run the course though (

    oh that sounds fancy!! Do Glasgoe run that



    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.
    yeah that's exactly what I heard too, I just wish they would get it right, its either ridiculously easy like last years or hard like ours...

    Don't worry too much, I was like that when I did my Standard Grades last year, truth is, they're just a stepping stone, Highers take over, then Advanced Highers, then Uni degrees and your Nat Fives will be a distant memory... :P you've probably did really well though so don't worry

    Yup it's Glasgow and Strathclyde, aiming for Strathclyde though
    I don't think it was exactly hard, it just focused on certain types of questions more compared to previous years which most people didn't seem to be prepared for somehow...

    I'm not as nervous as I was last year though! This year's been a lot better!

    Yeah, it definitely gets easier as time goes on! Especially as the wait between final exam and results gets shorter and shorter.
    I know someone on here from Oxford who got his exam results on the same afternoon as he sat the exam. :eek:

    I know! This year I finished 28th May and time has flown since then. I haven't done much in that time!!
    :eek: Woah! That's quick! Did he get into Oxford? If so, well done to him!

    I wish that could happen with all exams...but I do like waiting for my results.

    Only problem is if I get, say a B in Chemistry (:w00t::w00t:) I'll forget what questions came up that helped me!

    Do you know if they're hourly waves or whether the texts are sent out at random times?

    They're sent out in waves, but I think more frequently than hourly.

    Ah Results Day. I do keep forgetting that I have results to get! So glad I received an Unconditional. Don't think I could bare the stress of results day, again. However if you have a Conditional, very best of luck!
