    So results' day is fast approaching! How are you all feeling for it? I remember how anxious I was coming up to all of mine. :afraid: Feel free to use this thread for all your results' day chat needs! Currently the GCSE and A-level students are putting us to shame with their level of chattiness.

    Fortunately, we've got some guidance for you all written up by a ScotQuals superteam here Otherwise what's everyone doing to cope with the wait!?

    Results Day is now here! Let us know how you got on and if you feel like it, you can answer the following questions after telling us what you got..
    • Did you meet your predictions?
    • Have you got the grades you needed for your next stage?
    • What will you be doing now that you have received your results?
    • If you are continuing to further education, which subjects will you be studying?
    • On a scale of 1 to 5, how nervous were you when opening your results? (1 being not at all, 5 being very nervous)
    • How did you find out your results? (e.g text? email? post?)
    • Was anyone with you when you opened your results?
    • How do you feel now that you have opened your results?
    • Any further comments?


    And lastly, a little bit of good luck from all the staff at TSR!

    Oh God, that sounds like such a stressful way of finding out your results! Is this a sort of "so it doesn't ruin my holiday" coping mechanism?

    You're getting 6th year results, right?

    I suppose it is, she still has to endure 4 days of sun after it. 4 DAYS. I mean, if that's not hardship then I don't know what is. She'll be fine, I hope.

    Yeah last SQA results day for me . That is, unless I have a mid-life crisis and decide to return to do Higher Maths at College in the 2030s or something.

    Oh lawd, 4 days!? How ever will she distract herself for that long in a beautiful, sunny foreign country!?

    Don't be sad about it. University is infinitely better than the SQA, if that's what you're going to do.
    Hope I never decide to do that! I'm finally free of the SQA clutches and don't plan on running back any time soon.

    I think she'll resort to phoning childline, or writing a letter to Alex Salmond or something. She can't possibly stand for what she's going to be put through.

    I will miss school, but I'm ready for uni. Cannae wait to move to the Burgh iye... Hoping I get what I want, because although they don't matter whatsoever, I did actually work hard this year.

    Thanks for for setting up the thread! We definitely need to put the GSCE and A - levels under pressure!!

    I keep counting down the days, telling everybody within earshot whether they want to know or not.
    I think I know why they've been avoiding me lately. :laugh:

    This is my last year too and then time to say goodbye to the SQA! Weird too because it seems only yesterday I sat my Standard Grades.

    Good of luck to everyone who's receiving their results :goodluck: and hopefully lots of celebrations will take place! :woo:

    Bit anxious because it's my highers so hoping I get the right grades for 2015 entry
    Not really doing that much leading up to it, just checking the SQA page to see how many days are left every so often...
    I've got some work shadowing planned on the 5th so I won't be able to stay up waiting for the text/email to come through :unimpressed:

      I've got an unconditional offer for uni but im still worried about the results so I don't expect to be sleeping much the night before (I never can, always to excited and nervous ) but whatever happens, I'll know I tried my best, that's all you can do when you lasted through a year of advanced highers and a crash higher. )))

      I find predicted results look very cocky 70% of the time because the people who are most likely to post their predictions are the people who are most confident in getting straight A's. However, other questions would be good, such as "Are you worried about what your parents/teachers will think?" and "How will your exam results change your plans for the coming years?".

      Ahhhh, I'm absolutely bricking it for results' day! I sat my highers this year too so fingers crossed I haven't done too badly. Applying to uni for 2015 entry and I can always use my 6th year if I haven't done so well. I'm expecting to be disappointed, I just fell apart in some of my exams! Really feeling the pressure this year, particularly from myself...oh well, just hope I've done alright :cry:

      I genuinely think I'm the only one of my friends who's even thought about results' day. In any event, someone will undoubtedly be having an empty for us to celebrate/drown our sorrows at... :cheers:

      I was terrible at higher maths, I'll be lucky to have passed it I spoke to my maths teacher after the exam and he said that he thought it was a nice wee paper and that he had full confidence in my class and I was just like "eh, sure...?" So yeah, I'm really hoping I don't have to resit next year!

      I've heard they are lower for this year but I don't know exactly :\
      They'll be released after the 5th I think so we can find out, I'm definitely finding out my marks from my teachers though for highers!

      I didn't really find the paper too hard, just because I liked the type of questions the SQA focussed on this year - hoping for an A, well I need an A for my course so really hoping it went ok haha.
