I didn't say there was.

I just find it strange that you think people who themselves think they've done well enough to get an A are arrogant.

I think he means egocentrism rather than arrogance. I believe he's talking about the people who do well, but seem to brag about it and try to make others feel stupid if they found it harder than they did.
<MrBob> I hate Uni. At least in film studies we get to talk about Fight Club.
<@X-Factor> Wouldnt you be breaking the first 2 rules?

i worked really hard this year... my prelim in january i just scraped a C, and my maths teacher said that i probably wouldnt pass the final exam... so i workd extra hard.. and i mean extra hard to prove him wrong...
i am going to say that yea, paper 1 wos extremely difficult, but i tried my best and answered all the questions... wether they are rong or rite thats up to the SQA to decide...
Paper 2 i thought was much easier.. and im not being arrogant when i say this... i'm saying that because i worked my backside off

i think i got a B, purely on paper 2 bringing my grade up... but POSSIBLY an A, not sure for definate, obviously, but POSSIBLY lol

hope everyone gets what they want! x

I can see the point, it does seem as though a large proportion are choosing A's, But arrogance may not be the word, Overconfidence maybe, but i guess we will all find out whether it is or it is not in a few months, so until then there aint much you can do really other than be confident, or unconfident. cool.gif

Blimey, that is a well laid back attitude, i consider myself totally laid back and didnt think about my results. But when they came i did open them asap thinking the worst and i feel that is abetter attitude cos if u then go on to do as bad at least u expect it and if u do better then u feel better, but being overconfident must be crushing if u do worse than expected sad.gif

I apologise if I offended anyone.

I have no way of guaranteeing what I will get. I expect though compared to how I did in the prelim that my mark has improved as the paper was much easier than my prelim. Since i got an A in the prelim I can't see how I might not have got one in the exam.
