So in actual fact I got a C in history it would look like. My whole class did. Which is really strange as me and my mate were practically ready to get A's for it. It doesn't make any sense. Seeing as the whole class got c's would this be grounds for appeal if I got a B in the prelim?

If you got a B in the prelim then you're probably eligible for an appeal so it's worth a go.

Just curious... can anyone know how you can find out your banding? Maybe I'm just being blind, as I only just woke up and got my results, but I'm just not seeing anything indicating whether I got the upper or lower band (1 or 2 for A, 3 or 4 for B, etc.) for each result, only the letter grade.
You'll need to ask your teachers/your school. Don't bother asking the SQA, they shouldn't tell you.

Oh wow that's really good! I will find out how i did in my extended essay when i go back but i am definitely going to make them let me continue the course. I won't let them stand in my way haha! Congrats on that A though. I only sat Int 2 English though.. and got a B although i am sitting higher this year. I am praying they let me do it.:crossedf: I am willing to work very hard and try to get a good grade
I'm sure they'll let you do it. English is definitely not essential to do well as what you write in history does not have to be expressed very skilfully but just clearly. If the worst comes just get a parent or alternative to speak to senior management and they'll most likely just "ok it" rather than waste their time discussing the matter.

And would a B at advanced higher equate to an A at higher
I'm afraid no such equation exists! I hear this kind of thing all the time. When I was at school, we were told that a D at AH was equivalent to an A at Higher, on TSR I've heard that a C at AH equates to an A at Higher, as well as the B thing. There's no universal equation that exists! I've certainly not found anything to suggest such a thing.

Congrats, mate!

Just a note to anyone wanting to appeal their English result; I'd contact your school and try get a breakdown of your mark first. If it was your folio rather than exam that brought your grade down then it'll most likely be far more difficult to get a successful appeal

hey guys, quick question.

my brother got his results and he exceed his firm offer therefore allowing him to be eligible for adjustment. my question is this - when can he sign up for adjustment ? is when the a-level results come out? or can he do it now?

Thanks

I think it depends on the course, some consider a C at AH equivalent to a an A at higher, others consider a B at AH equivalent to an A at higher.

This.
Answer here.

Adjustment goes live on A-level results day - 15th of August, and then from that point you've got 5 days to make an Adjustment choice. I'm not sure if he can register now in advance - there'll be a button on Track if he can - but if not, then he'll have to wait until the 15th!
The fact that you're asking instead of registering tells me that the button isn't up yet, and so you won't be able to do it until the 15th.

Ok so just talked to the guidance team at my college and they said they would set up the appeal but it wouldn't be fast tracked. How long would I need to wait to get a result?

AAABB BB in Chemistry and Biology

Do you think I could resit higher Chem if I'm sitting Adv this year?
I know the exams are technically at the same time, but I really need this A at higher for uni
And Hopefully I'll get an appeal from Bio.

I just needed 69% for an A in Bio... This is so embarrassing

Hi, just to check. Has anyone here also sat Higher history?. On your certificate does it give you a breakdown of what you gained for each section. Have still not received my certificate to check, however after being predicted an A i got a C (Made my conditions). However whilst I was not bothered to begin with my lecturer for Modern studies informed me no member of the class received over a C. Considering I had received A's for every graded piece of work throughout the entire year I'm convinced some type of anomaly has taken place.

Check out our appeals thread. What's the appeal for again?

What subject? Check universities you'd be interested in going to and see if you meet their requirements. You could get an offer from most Scottish universities with those grades :yep:
