    just stop being ridiculous
    I hope --

    I hope this is not directed at SAM...

    I hope for your sake this is not directed at SAM...

    Who in the HELL do you think you are, barging into this WONDERFUL thread and running your VULGAR mouth off at the GODDESS of Scotquals? Wtf have you ever done? Do you think just anyone can be SAM?

    Do you think that in the SQA offices, some dude just walks past the thousands of employees, lines them up for a moment and says "yeah, you'll do" -- is that what you think, you jellyfish for brains peon?

    Do you even REALISE the ENORMITY of being SAM? Do you UNDERSTAND, friend? It's not a role anyone can fill -- it's the highest of the high... listen. Listen. There is no SQA official more senior, more sagacious and sensual than SAM; her role is beyond your reach, to say nothing of your comprehension -- do you think you'll ever get promoted to that sort of level at your job? What would that be for a toilet cleaner anyway? "Head of mops"?

    Try a little respect the next time you dip into an ocean of wisdom to test the waters.

    Not an Exam tip, more of a Life tip - make sure you register to get your results by text or email with MySQA! You'll feel so much better. And why not share the love around - tell all your friends too as well. So that you'll know they have their results when you phone to gloat.

    Do you mean 46? If so, I have no idea. I failed Maths.

    Seeing as tomorrow is the last exam of the season - it's the big final between Sociology and Mechatronics - I'm not going to put up any more tips. Instead I'm going to start naggin gyou to register for MySQA - and to remember to activate your accounts! Every year thousands of you fail to do this, so don't get your results by text or email. So don't put it off, do it now!
