My friend failed her Nat 5 modern studies exam but picked to do higher this year (s5). She got an A in the prelim and has been sitting this high up consistently throughout the year. Will she be able to still do higher? Thanks.

I'm sorry about your friend. It's the worst feeling when that happens. How bad did she fail by? If it's a D, she may be able to talk her way into the Higher. However, in most circumstances the school won't let her. They require a C to progress to Higher. Have you talked to her? Did she think the exam didn't go well, or is this out of the blue?

She should talk to someone at the place she wants to do the higher at and show proof she is capable (the papers she got A's/B's in). If she has any kind of extenuating circumstances that affected revision or the actual exam, she should also mention that, as they then might be a bit more understanding as to why she failed the exam.

yeah she thought the exam was weird and not like anything she’d done within the subject before - which I somewhat agree with. I’m unsure how much she failed by but she did get a D. The teacher is aware that she is capable of achieving high grades so I think she’ll try and talk her way in next week when we go back to school.
