How to pass all National 5's with all A's? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have recently moved into fourth year just before summer and I have started studying for my exams. I know it may be a little too early but I'd rather be prepared. I'm worried because of the fact that there's 7 exams but I am aiming to study at an American university, preferably an Ivy League school therefore I need the best grades. I know it's very difficult but I am willing to put in the hard work. I know universities look at Higher grades but my teacher said that they also look at National 5 grades and if I pass them all with A's then I will find Higher exams much easier.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any studying tips.I have a few Standard Grade past papers from 2001-2005 and have done most of the ones on the SQA website.
