I think exams went alright, but I feel that you can't predict them. I had a few surprises last year at N5. Currently on a quick holiday at the moment, so when I get back I'm just going to enjoy summer. It's been a long time coming! ๐Ÿ˜

Yeah, I took 9 subjects last year. 8 being N5's and 1 being N4 RE. It's easy to predict subjects such as maths, the three sciences and such. Much harder to predict the likes of German, Music and English as parts which are assessed are very subjective. Just my viewpoint, some people might be different. For instance I failed my German Prelim and came out with an A in the final exam. So surprises can come when you least expect them!

Best of luck in your results and I hope you get what you are looking for!

Nice one! Glad to hear from another student who didn't take English this year! There's not too many at my school. I sat Higher Maths, Geo, Music, Physics and Information Systems.

Haha likewise, the thing about Higher English is that it is (one of the hardest exams to get an A) and also it is not required by many universities for science subjects, hence I don't get why teachers pressure most pupils into doing it even though its such a hard exam. Nat 5 good pass at English is good enough

Without a doubt! It's probably the hardest to get an A in because it is so subjective. One teachers A can be another teachers B!๐Ÿ˜ƒ I don't see why we should be forced in to taking a subject which will ultimately have no effect on our future goals. Same can be said about Higher Maths, just seems that more people don't want to admit it for Higher English!
