    Me too. I didn't even finish one of my essays and I'm almost certain that I left some sentences unfinished in my other ones. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that I think my performance in English was below par and I'm aiming for 4 As and a B this year. That means that I can afford to get a B in either English or modern studies, but not both.
    I've probably made my marker extremely grumpy... It's so hard to gauge how I've done. For example, I thought I'd absolutely bombed the prelim miserably, but managed to get a high B, and I recall that in the modern studies SG exam last year, I only wrote 2 sentences for one of the 8 mark questions, yet I still got a 1 for KU. Admittedly, that was SG level, but still. I don't want to get my hopes up, however. I don't really feel that I ever "clicked" with higher modern studies, whereas I found history far more straightforward.
    Ah ok i see. I am the same although i only did two highers this year in history and modern studies and need 4 Bs minimum over two years to get into the course i want to at university. I am taking two highers next year to get those '4 B's' and also two advanced highers - modern studies and history. I really can't afford to get a low grade, i.e a C in either of them. Also on top of it all i am undertaking the social science baccalaureate next year and that compromises of AH Modern studies and AH History. So overall if i dont get B's in History and Modern studies then my whole 6th year is going to be ruined. Yeah i know what you mean i did something similar at SG and got a 1 for KU. I am praying i get decent grades in August. I also found history much more straightforward than modern studies!

    Is anybody else extremely worried for their result for modern studies? I have a feeling i have got a C or something ahhh... I really need a B in order to do advanced higher and its stressing me out! Two months wait is too long i want the result now. It has probably already been graded and my bad grade is on some database right now haha..

    I too am extremely nervous, keep thinking what I could of written. I need a B also for my university course, so it's not just you lol!

    If you get C's in Modern and History this year, you should technically be able to still take them both at AH. The. all you need to get is C's at both of these AH's and they'll pull your Higher C's up to Higher B's!

    No, the school said that unless you have B minimum then you shouldnt be able to do the course..

    Thought i would bring back up an old thread haha sorry.. Three weeks on Tuesday till we get our results. Not too sure how i have done to be honest. I need a B but want an A. All shall be revealed in 21 days... really nerve wracking.

    Do you think the pass mark may be raised as it wasn't that bad a paper?

    I worked out that if i have say a 10, 9, 8 and 11 for my essays... and 22/30 for my DME then thats me got 66% so according to last years grade boundries i have a B only 3 marks off of a low A which is 60 marks.

    Good luck everyone

    You could always look at colleges near where you live which might offer the course or maybe take up a subject such as higher sociology is your school runs it?

    Also glad to be doing Law and Order as it's so different from anything we've ever studied before. We might get to visit the prison as well!
