After exams, I might add a poll to this thread entitled,
"Has this thread improved your grade?"

Thanks a lot for taking the time to make this thread; I can tell the older past papers will come in handy near exam time, especially considering they have full solutions. It can be annoying when you're unsure as to where you went wrong and all the SQA Answer Section provides is a single answer!

I managed to come across an excellent online resource set-up for the Higher course, available here. The website provides thorough preparation for prelims and exams, with five practice prelims, over two hundred multiple choice questions and further revision material for specific topics. (Jesus, I sound as if I've been hired to advertise the site...)
You're welcome.
Is it password protected? I noticed the Advanced Higher was.

Took my guidance teacher long enough to write her reference that it only got sent on the 11th! Wasn't so happy! So nope, not heard anything? What about yours? Get an interview at Cambridge ;D?

I did, it went fine.
However, I made the drastic mistake of applying to a college in which there are more TSR applicants than there are places - hence I can see a gap year on the agenda!
Where are you hoping to go?
Also, what clubs do you run at your school as I've started up a higher maths help club, to hopefully help the students who want to work their asses off, get that grade that'll get them to uni.

Oh good ! Ooh which college like ? Pembroke by any chance? That's the one I wanted to apply to ...! Right now I have no idea, don't think my parents want me to be paying the fees, so I'm looking into St. Andrews atm!

I actually don't run any clubs maths related at my school, I usually just help my advanced higher class in free periods, make sure they're keeping up!:P although I have been thinking about a higher maths club.. So well see!

I'm thinking of starting an AH maths supported study - might start it off as just a homework club and then it'll probably snowball from there.
Pembroke yes! Madness.
Ah, so it's the prestige you're after
Have you seen the place? I've heard it's lovely - my mate's a 3rd year chemist and he adores it there

Yeah, thats what my life has turned into atm haha! Every time I turn a corner I get asked questions :P! Done 3 prelim papers so far for homework and 3times 100% so can't complain the course is pretty interesting so far!

Awww I wanted to apply to Pembroke! Silly school didn't tell me I had to apply by the 15th.. Ah well, parents wouldn't have liked the fees anyway!

I have only seen the pictures, but omg it looks gorgeous.. Would love to study there, but we'll see, might not leave home :P
