What do you guys get as prizes? Do you just get certificates, or do you get an actual prize? At my school, Standard grade prizes get £15 worth of book tokens per prize, and for Higher it's £20 worth of book tokens per prize. Last year I got the Standard Grade prizes for English, History and German, and with my book tokens I bought a medical encyclopedia! smile.gif

ohmy.gif a certificate and a pat on the back

optimisations problems - i think its calculus problems (e.g. differentiation)

Thats so unfair. No we get certificates and thats it. I cant use that thing I got 89% in for appeal as it was only worth 100 marks. Everything depends on the exam and even if I do get the endeavour I dont get any reward and my parents are not rewarding me unless I get at least 3 As. If I get that I get about £50! But I think I'm only gonna get 2 As!

even tho its some marks short its fine

they can use it

as long as there is an adequate proportion of A/B coverage and all outcomes are assessed then you should get the appeal as long as there is also appropriate cut-offs, marking schemes enclosed etc

Ok, we never called them that in Higher Maths at our school so I was unsure.

Yeh optimisation problems is when u differentiate a formulae to find the maximum or minimum volume of a shape. Its 30 marks short and their wasnt enough units 1 and 2 in it! I got a B in my prelim which didnt have enough unit 3 in it so we did a unit 3 test worth about 30 marks. Then we did this thing to reitterate unit 3
Most of it was on unit 3

I'm not entirely sure but there are three of us joint winner for the physics prize,

First place is £100 and Second place is £50, so they added the 2 prizes together and divided by 3 so it's £50 each for the joint winner for the physics prize.

Wow! Is it book tokens or actual money?

It's money. I'm also the winner of the Dr. Montgomery Prize for Maths, and I think you get £100 for that. I'll let you know on the 18th, if so, the drinks are on me! biggrin.gif

Where did you find that out?

Teachers

Unfortunately its usually private school students who always seem to get it mad.gif

I know for sure they do it for H Biology and Chemisty

I have heard that it applies to most Higher subjects that are high in popularity

The money comes from sponsors not the SQA e.g. insitute of biology, royal society of chemistry etc

I don't think the school give out any money to students, the money from winning prizes comes from organizations. I.e. Dr Montgomery from Irvine left money in his will to give money annually to the best person in maths. The prize I'm getting for computing is the 'Irvine Seagute Rotary Trophy" I think it just depends on what organization backs your school up...

I think they do it for H and AH Computing!

Im not sure how you find out for sure. I suppose the SQA tell you as they presumably pass on the information directly to these organisations.

I immagine they would, but you would have to have got every question correct more than likely and I don't think you find out for a while. The person that got the highest mark for music in Scotland (who goes to my school) found out at assembly that he got the highest mark a few weels ago, and he sat the exam in 2003....

Aw. Well we can but hope. I mean £500 or even £100 is a lot of money to me!
That'd easily pay for my past papers for next year and that drama course!
See for computing, can you ask our school how much u got in your coursework, think they'd tell u?

Only if you get the top mark.

Unless you are taking a subject with component marks this year e.g. AH Chemistry in August you can find out exact mark for Section A, Section B and Report.
