    My sister did Eff all work in 5th year, like seriously, and still ended up with 5 A's. Lucky so and so that she is. :p:
    Any Fifth years reading this thread:

    Its far easier if you don't have to cram - I did virtually nothing for my final exams compared to my friends because I had already done the work throughout the year. I studied for every test (and so got >90% in most 'cos they weren't supposed to be that hard) even though I often had more than one a week, this meant I just had to practice recalling the info with past papers before the exams. It just takes a few hours a week and doesn't have to be all at once.

    OK, under the school you sat exams at click on add qualifications:

    Then click on SGs/highers or whatever to add the subjects and grades.

    Dentistry, Pharmacy, Pharmacology.

    I'm a bit worried about my UKCAT score letting my application down - for dentistry at Glasgow. I only got an average of 600 .
    Everyone seems to be getting around 670

    People on other forums are sayinng the cut-off will be 600+, and on the university website it says the cut-off for medicine is 600 (don't know about dentistry).
    The only section I feel I really underperformed in was the shapes secrion - didn't realise that the time was about to run out in 10secs - which means I missed aproximately 15 questions. Oh I just wish I could do it again and at least improve my score in the shapes section

    ok the last thing I want to say about UKCAT - I think this is shocking that people are getting their scores increased because there were a few questions a lot of people performed badly in - even though they may not have got another question correct.

    I wouldn't care as much if everyones scores were increased (including me)
