- Predictions:
Higher Human Biology- B
Higher Chemistry- A
Higher Maths- A
Higher Physics- B
Higher French- A

- Do you have any required grades?
AAAAB at higher, AA in Biology and Chemistry

How did you find the exams?
I found them alright, I think I studied the content to much and didn't pay enough attention to the mark scheme during my revision.
Biology had so man graph questions and I really don't like them
Chemistry was alright and I loved the open ended question on dog food
Physics had an awful multiple choice section but I found the main one alright, plus me and my friend predicted the open ended questions.
Maths just pressed me for time so I didn't have as much opportunity to check my answers as I would of liked. I cant believe there was a colouring in question!
French has such a weird question about an expression that I had never ever heard of that is supposed to mean "bottoms up". Other than that it was alright and I know I did well in the speaking so hopefully I've got the grade.

Are you optimistic about getting what you need?
I'm kinda worried that I've got a B in biology and I need an A but I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed

Do you have any required grades?
- if I get minimum requirements for when I apply to uni: AABB or like ABBBB
- if not: AAAB/AAAA

How did you find the exams?
- English: It was the best exam I had taken, I knew everything, really pleased with it, but my folio may bring me down.
- Geography: Again, I studied really hard, and I knew the majority of things, advantages + disadvantages threw me off though, otherwise did well!
- Modern: It was my 2nd last exam, I studied really hard, I feel like I should have taken my time with it, but it was generally alright.
- History: Potentially hoping to do it at Uni, the 1st paper was terrific, it's just the second paper that really let me down bc of how the questions were worded, other than that, went ok?
- Drama: Horrible, I hate the subject, I only took it because I need 5 Highers.

good luck everyone!! <3

Planning on applying to Medicine/Dentistry later on so the required grades are AAAAB (or AAAAA for Edi & Glasgow). Required A for Chem.

- Other Comments:
Biology Exam - Was fun! Can't remember much tbh.
English Exam - Was also fun! I remember being so proud of my critical essay.
Maths Exam - Feeling a bit nervous for this result. I'm normally very good at maths but I don't think I performed my best that day.
Music Exam - Who decided to make the wording of the question really weird? Or maybe I just didn't revise properly. I hope my performance grade carries!
Chemistry Exam - Was my last exam... Got so worked up about it the night before. Hopefully, my revision paid off.

Good luck for tomorrow everyone!!

Predictions:
Higher English - B, or an A if I’m lucky
Higher Maths - A
Higher Modern Studies - A
Higher Mandarin - A
Higher Music - B? Maybe an A, I’m not sure. The paper was hard but I think my practical went alright.

Required Grades:
AAAAB is the minimum for Scots Law at Glasgow, which im applying for, but I think to actually stand a chance I need 5 A’s

Other comments:
Maths was pretty good, i think. Same with mandarin. Mods was okay but I used a gel pen which ended up being a nightmare. I let them know though, so hopefully it’s not a problem. Music could have been okay, I'm just unable to tell at present, though I don’t think it went terribly wrong. English was… not great, which sucks because it was my strongest subject. Hopefully my folio saves me 😬

Good luck everyone!!! 🍀

That’s cool!! I really hope I get in, it seems perfect for me (i’m also applying for cambridge but I feel like that course is going to be harder to get into). I remember finding it alright. I liked the RUAE paper & I had the choice of three essay questions, all of which I felt prepared for. I guess it’s hard to compare english exams cos we all did separate texts? But for mine at least I felt it went very well. I did study an absolute ton (9hrs the day before!!!)
