    Quite disappointed with my results this year got 4Bs and a C in higher maths which I am gutted about! Does anyone know if it's possible to still get into engineering at uni?

    Difficult, most want an A or at least a B in Maths, but have a look at Napier. Resit if you can. There is always a way, resist, college course first ... It might just take you a little bit longer that's all.

    That's very lovely of you to have let us know.

    I've just received my SQA Higher results...

    4 A's and a B

    The B was in Chemistry and I want to study Medicine. Is this me out of the picture now or is there a chance I can still get in? I've been wanting to study medicine since I was 13.

    I'm taking 3 Advanced Highers in S6 - Physics, Chemistry and Maths.

    Thanks

    Not at all - this ultimately depends on the offer they give you. And if you are taking Advanced Higher in Chemistry as well, and you get an A for that, then that should show them that you are more than capable!

    You can check here for the medical courses and what kind of grades they are looking for!

    Hope this helps, and really well done with those results - you should be really happy!

    Just got my results and i really am slightly disappointed

    Adv Higher History- B
    Adv Higher Mod Studs- C
    Higher English- B
    Higher R.M.P.S- C
    Social Science Baccalaureate- Pass
    Interdisciplinary Project- C

    I really am shocked at the B in English and History and i am incredibly gutted with the C in Modern Studies as i worked very hard and i also achieved an A in the prelim with 88%.

    Not sure what the plan now is.. I have a place at St Andrews for the next year to take some modules for reapplying 2015 and i will probably have to take that as im sure no university would let me in with my grades of BC ABCC. I want to study history.

    Generic message to all.

    If you have done well, great, good to know that you can fulfil what you want. I was fortunate enough to be one of these people.

    If you haven't done so well, please, don't worry. Qualifications are fairly meaningless in the long run with grit, determination and passion, you can achieve what you want. Some of the thickest people I know come from University, some of the brightest those who never got their, or went to much demeaned polytechnics.

    Not to mention moral conscience. If you have passion and desire to help society and people, you will find a way. This will merely be an obstacle.

    Hello you,

    How many points away are you? What was your offer? Track will open at 9 so there isn't much you can do until then.

    How are you feeling about your insurance choice? Sorry so many questions - we'll do our best to help you
    Hi,

    My highest offer was ABBCC and my lowest was BBC. I've landed with BCFF, I don't know how. I had thought I absolutely aced the Adv.Higher Computing due it feeling so easy this year, I am so so gutted right now. Also, Higher Maths? I would thought I AT LEAST got a C in it, I don't even know why, my parents paid £30 for tutoring TWICE a week from October, this is just so so so so bad.[/QUOTE]
