    Hi guys, I have finally got all the results of my prelims I sat in January back, I am currently in S5 however staying on until S6 is not something I want to do so I applied to uni (currently have 1 offer and waiting on others to respond). This means that the highers I do this year will be the only ones I do rather that doing some this year and next year.

    Anyway, my results are listed below:
    Higher English - B
    Higher Mathematics - Fail
    Higher Modern Studies - B
    Higher Politics - A
    Higher Psychology - B

    My results meet a potential offer I could get however I know I need to do better and constantly improve but I am wondering should I be concerned with these results?

    Those are certainly not bad results and you have time to improve upon them before the final exams, at my school I think they made out prelims slightly more difficult as they wanted us to try even more for the final exam but these results are something to work from, work out where you're going wrong and improve upon it . When I did my higher prelims I failed 2 and got low grades in the other 3 but in my final exams I got AAABB so they're definitely not the end of the world, speak to your teachers about how you can improve and do what you can to get the best result you can in April, good luck!
