Someone mentioned automatic appeals - these are given before results are issued if you are below your teachers estimated grade but that teacher estimated your classmates spot on.
Different schools may differ, but at my school we do not appeal just because a pupil got an A in the prelim and a B in their actual exam.
Hope this helps - sorry not too positive!

And i never got an A in one of my Chemistry prelim but i got the highest mark in the class, it was a hard prelim, i was 1 off the a mark and i was off just before and after the prelims for quite a while does that mean i could get an appeal??

You said it was a tough Prelim. Unfortunately that is for the SQA to decide! Even we teachers get prelims wrong and that could be the difference between getting your appeal or not.
Your Chemistry department will have the final say in whether they feel their are ground to appeal or not, and would normally send your prelim and other evidence (NAB's etc) to the SQA.

I know a girl who went to college last year who got just 52% in her prelim in Higher English and she then failed her Higher English exam with 'No Award'. She won her English appeal!!!! A lot of people were pissed off cos some of them got B's and A's in the prelim but they didn't win their appeal. But this girl in question has a bad disability and is in a wheelchair and people said she only got the appeal cos of her disability.....someone here said you can win down to personal and family circumstances. Well this girl sure did.

It also doesn't help that prelims are generally percieved to be harder than the actual exam itself - in my case anyway.

Why are you being rude.
I'm not being rude, merely suggesting that (because you said you said your school sucked) you werent being listened to. Its more of a fault with the school than yourself. All I'm saying is to get schools to listen you have to be a wee bit more assertive than usual.
Depending on how strong your evidence is I'd say you could get a couple, they are always really nice to people on terms of illness.

I did my prelims fine, got all A's and 1s, but then later in the year developed a very bad case of appendicitis, which kept me in bed for 6 weeks, and gave me trouble walking for about a year. I missed my exams, and had to appeal for all of my results. I got the same results as I did in my prelims. So in this case, these kinds of appeals are very helpful

An increasing amount of people feel this is wrong and the SQA is the only board in the UK which does this
If i am not here i am somewhere else
