    I'm content with those, they're not amazing but I can live with them. I would have liked to have done better in English seeing as I got 90% in the prelim but it's so subjective and a lot of it depends on the markers opinion of the dissertation/folio. A B in physics is a sheer miracle so I'm chuffed with that.

    its risky but its because i want to see if i can get into other universities but since they have clearing places as well i was just wondering.
    Yeah, I wouldn't risk it for a biscuit! No guarantee that your releasing university would take you back, and they might not want to!

    I just got my results and was a bit surprised. I passed all the NABS and got 80% for my folio. However, I decided not to sit the exam this year and did not expect any exam result as a consequence!

    My SQA email says Higher English F.

    I also passed all the NABS for another subject but did not sit the exam. The subject is not mentioned on the results email!

    Surely, if I did not sit the exam it should not have any award attributed to it? Anyone else in this kind of situation as I am very surprised to see this communicated to me by the SQA? Seems like my college are trying to pretend I sat the exam for some reason ...

    An
    An "F" is a no award, mate. You might have been submitted for the exam because of the portfolio or an administrative error or something, hence why it's showing up on your e-mail, but your certificate should show it as a no award on the cover letter, but you will be awarded the national units for the NABs you passed still!

    Thank you, I'm popping into the school in a few minutes too. Is there someone from the SQA that's usually there or is it just the teachers who are waiting to advise students?
    My school had an "SQA liaison officer" - who was one of the teachers with extra responsibilities. Maybe yours has the same thing? There isn't usually an SQA representative there!

    I've got a full time job at the moment but I hate it I was really hoping to get in to uni! I'm not sure I would need to contact the school, I'm so gutted.
    Yeah, talking to your school is the best shot atm. Since you're quite closer to your offer, maybe a remark might help?

    (Original post by kingsout)
    So errm I got an A for higher physics but it says exam only even though I passed all my NAB's first time?? Seriously freaking out here!
    Definitely talk to your school - it might be the case that your school hasn't submitted the results of your NABs to the SQA properly. I remember there was some hullabaloo about "exam only" showing up in the past few years showing up when it shouldn't, but unfortunately, our advisor who knew about all that stuff has since left the team.

    As long as you didn't need maths for anything, it won't matter At least you know there's nothing you did wrong and it's not your fault :yes:

    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?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Hey mate, definitely still possible to get into Engineering! A lot of unis might have a higher requirement for maths, though, so you may need to retake - talk to your school when they go back. They'll be able to advise you! Might be the case that you have to retake maths and then take some new Highers with that!

    Is this on your e-mail, or on your certificate?
