    I'll certainly be going back in for my investigation/project results (and I'm definitely not the only one!); irritatingly, despite our Computing projects being internally-assessed, the school's policy is that we can't get the marks until the rest of the component marks come out. :rolleyes:

    I have an unconditional but I still want to know my grades :P. I still worked hard this year (well, some of the time) and I'd hate that to be a waste and find out I'd completely failed everything .

    I'm another one who'll be going in for my investigation marks! I put so much work into those beasts that I have to know how they did! I just hope I haven't spent so long on them and it turns out that I've got 3/25 or something like that!

    You'd have to completely ignore common sense, all accumulated scientific knowledge in your life and the SQA guidelines to get 3/25!

    The rational part of me knows that, but I'm still really scared that I've done something really wrong and the marker will laugh :P

    Yeah me too :p:

    I really want 20+ in both of them, but the amount I learnt from doing my investigations means that when I came to do the report I saw so many flaws! That said I spent ages on my reports and was pretty meticulous about them so hopefully that compensated...

    I'm aiming for 15-20, with Biology def being my worst and Chemistry and Physics about even.

    I spent ages on mine as well, though was still finetuning them right to the deadline. I looked over them the other day and still found stuff I wanted to change! :P

    Yeah, I think the fact that we can look back now and find a whole bunch of stuff we would change now shows how good a learning process it was! I can't speak for you, but it was frustrating as hell at times and it totally felt like I was thrown in at the deep end but i'm glad I was now!

    Oh I completely agree with you! There was the horrible moment in Chem when my experiment had, literally, exploded and I was left with nothing which made me want to pack it all in and just cry for a while. But then it worked the next time (thank goodness!) and I think I ended up with a good project at the end of it.

    It's definitely been good experience for uni, though I'm not doing a pure science degree and thus will not be doing experiments and writing reports very regularly, I think the independent working element was great!

    I'm absolutely terrified

    Although I have a plan:
    collect results envelope on morning of results day, go out clubbing on the evening and get wasted, open results when drunk, laugh at string of (expected) Ds with other drunk friends :rofl:
    Lol, that sounds like a good way to do it, although im sure they wont be as bad as you think. Good luck.

    I wont be going in to find out my advanced higher biology mark because I was working with plants and they were just a complete disaster because they were being left for weekends under a warm light bank! I wouldn't except anymore than 15 for my investigation.

    Good luck to everyone who is going in to find out their exact mark.

    No, you'll have to see your teacher.

    No, the schools get the results at pretty much the same time as we do (although universities get them early, in order for them to make decisions on people who just miss offers and so on). Also, there will usually be some people hanging around on results day - teachers often go in to check how their classes got on. (I emailed my teachers at their school address asking for my bands on results day last year and got most of them on the same day and the rest within a few days.)

    Or you can wait until they go back. :p:

    I'm sort of in the same boat - I'm not bothered at all about what I get this year. I want to get my Adv H Geo at A, but that's just to show respect to my amazing Geography teacher really! Towards the end of 6th year you could definitely tell those who needed grades and those who didn't - take a quick look in the social area and you'll find all those with UCs! XD

    Was the same at our school, although the majority of people did have to get at least one exam this year.
