    I got 6 A's at Higher in maths, english, geography, computing, physics and maths.

    I didn't get my results till around 5 becuase I was doind medical work experience and I wanted to wait and open the envelope myself.

    I havn't applied to anywhere yet, but I want to study medicine. This year I will be doing 3 advanced highers - chemistry, physics and applied maths - and 1 higher - biology.

    Well done everyone!

    I feel like I should be out celebrating, but I don't want to phone any of my mates or anything as I know they didn't do as well as me so possibly won't be in the mood to celebrate and/or I'll come across as a big-headed ******. At the moment I'm stuck here bored out of my face

    I know what you mean. I know exactly who did as well as me (one called, one texted, and one I hate but I heard about from the rector) and don't want to appear to be gloating to others.

    lol woops

    the highers I sat were english, maths, physics, chemistry, computing and geography. Computing was the one which I did not learn in school.

    As to my decision to do applied maths - I phoned several universities and all of them said they would far rater have someone having done applied maths than pure maths for a medical course as it is far more useful to have done some statistics work. Applied maths has 2 units of statistics and a 3rd unit which "samples" each of the 3 units of pure maths.

    thanks alot!

    I did unit 1 of stats last year, and there was a guy in my class who did Applied maths by itself due to timetabling difficulties, and he struggled. I found stats difficult, but pure maths much more straightforward. Could you not do 2 units of pure and 1 of stats? Just my opinion, feel free to ignore it Also I don't think unis will mind too much which one you do, most people starting medicine wont have done stats anyway!

    The Duck - congrats on your grades!!!
