    By "fail" do you mean a "D" or a "no award"?

    Especially if it's the former I'd say you have a decent chance. I suppose it's worth asking about it at your school, what have you got to lose?

    Definitely go ask, you have a fair chance if you got a B in the prelim.

    Try.

    Do you have any other coursework of a similar standard to your prelim (B level) ?

    i was talking to a friend earlier and i suggested it'd be better to get as close as possible to the grade you want when appealing but he suggested it's better to be further away as it shows you have truly messed up on the day so that may work in your favour.

    sorry to hear about the result, i done poorly in english too.

    I didn't want to start a new topic since I'm basically asking the same question but...

    If I got an A for both Physics and Chemistry in the prelims and ended up with B's in the exam(and only a mark or two away from an A) do I have a good chance for an appeal or is it unlikely?

    So do they actually take into account the mark or is it just an A? If it's the latter I might have a chance :P

    I think it's quite unlikely because there was only one grade of a difference. Unlucky though :hug:

    It usually had to be a good a really, but if your teachers think it's possible you can appeal, go for it. Nothing to lose!

    Instead of creating a new thread. I thought I may ask whether my friend shoul re-sit higher english or not. She got a C in the final exam and failed her prelim. I don't think English was a subject she enjoyed much and that she wishes to pursue a career in something science related. So is it best for her to re-sit higher english or not?

    I'm retaking because I got a C.. but that's because I want to do History so...yeah.

    Eh if she wants to do science she probably wouldn't need it especially seen as she passed. What did she get for the rest of her results?

    She could take it and then when the Unis reply saying shes either received a conditional or unconditional she could drop it.

    If those are all in Highers then she most certainly wouldn't need it!

    i suspect the 'keypoint' thing is a technique which you are taught rather than an actual marking point of importance. perhaps if you're school are strict about that stuff then they won't be happy, but i hardly think it's much of an issue for the final....although i wouldn't have thought 3 points makes for a terribly long/detailed essay

    I've never heard of it having to be 4 points..It's all about the balance, three well developed points will probably be just as good as 4. Less chance of waffling too.
