SQA Results Day 2021 is here!

Everyone will receive results by post, and if you've signed up to mySQA, you should receive a text or email from SQA on or just after 8am on results day.

It's been a tricky year, so no matter what results you get today, well done on getting through it - exams are not the be all and end all :hugs:

This is the place for all things results day, so whether you just want to chat to some other students, have some questions about results day, or you need any help or advice about your results & what to do next, TSR is here to help

Here's some starters...
  • What subjects/levels did you study?
  • How do you feel about your results?
  • Are you changing your plans now that you have officially received your results?
  • What's next for you - moving up a year, college, apprenticeship, uni, something else?

Morning!
Sadly I forgot to register for mySQA just like last year............
That means I’ll receive my results within the next 7 hours. However it doesn’t really matter since I know my provisional results anyways.
I got AAAAC.
A’s in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Business.
C in English (it was a C band 5 meaning a high C which means I was only 4 or less marks away from a B!!!!!!!!!!!!, I really wanted a B).
I’m happy with my results overall.
I’m not gonna change my plans if these are the results I get and that means I’m still gonna do Pharmacy or Optometry.
Next year (technically this year) I’ll be doing Advanced Chemistry, advanced Physics and Higher Human Biology. I’m hoping to achieve AB at advanced higher (with A in chemistry and B in physics) and an A in higher human biology (AAB). These are my minimum targets and expectations. My maximum targets and expectations are obviously AAA.

Wow you got an A in higher computing science!
I consider myself good at maths and physics but I could never do computing science. I’ve seen it’s past papers and I literally can’t script at all. In 1st year of high school we had to make a game in this app called scratch and I couldn’t code anything at all lol. And wow congrats on your A in Spanish, I never studied for my Spanish unit assessment Nat five level in 3rd year and got a C as I already had plans on dropping it. But wow you’ve got really amazing results!

So pleased to hear you are proud of your grades, congratulations!!

This one definitely has a different vibe - makes the days of texts/emails sent out from midnight (pre-2016) seem bizarre in comparison :lol:

What's next for you Kubsyy?

StudentForSQAThank you I didn’t know that I would get that high to be honest especially with lockdown January-April where I was motivated but then I gradually started to become lazy and not wanting to do work

Yeah Scratch is a bit weird and didn’t get it at all, I had a friend who did 3D graphics on scratch lol and I even watched him when we had computing classes ;p

Spanish is one of my favourite subjects and I remember my teacher gave me 27/30 for speaking and 16/20 for writing and then it was sent to another school for marking and then they were all bumped up to full markings, I was hella shocked

But again good luck with your Advanced highers, I heard they are really fun to do I wish I’ve done one.

Yes the year was so unusual. My English teacher taught us Jekyll and Hyde chapter 10 in 1 day during lockdown and it was for like 1 hour only, chapter 10 has like the most pages in the book and the passage that came up in the exam was 1 page from chapter 10. I was hoping it would’ve been a passage we learnt in class rather than at home during online learning. Hoping next year these things won’t happen.

Definitely don't envy all of the extra challenges you (or the teachers) had to get to here...Getting through the year and persevering with everything to keep working towards your grades is an achievement in itself this year especially!

Just completed S5 Higher Maths, Physics, Chemistry, English and French

Postman just been and grades now in print, after the postcode down grade scandal (resolved) admin errors (1 resolved, one unresolved due to school error/fault - they accepted responsibility for) and 3 versions of a certificate which in the end still wasn't right last year it is just a relief to see highers in print, correct first time, but unfortunately also seeing that NAT5 admin error there as a blot on the certificate again ☹️. I know it shouldnt matter, it is only NAT5, but it is in a subject that is important to me.

Now the wait is to see if the 2021 grade statistics and/or media devalue my hard won grades by reporting any significant grade inflation.

S6 now - 2AH Maths/Physics, Crash H Geography and H PE. Applying for mechanical engineering for 2022 entry.
