Good luck everyone!!

I'm sure you'll all get the grades you are hoping to get!

james1, are you referring to the pass rates for each subject? I think these are only found in the PA Reports which (I presume) haven't been published yet.

I stumbled over this: I think it's maybe supposed to be confidential until tomorrow.

Wow!

That has just frightened me big time!

Isn't the pass rate specified for english nearly the same as last year? Just noticed 2003 result was beside the 2004 ones. 2003 Pass rate was 59% while 2004 was 64%

I'm guessing the A/B/C marks needed for Maths were really high this year, as Maths has got a lower pass rate than Physics which was seen to be really hard and the Maths was supposedly the easiest ever.

Yup I totally agree...I looked at Info Systems. Only 299 people got an A, I wanted an A...I don't know if I am 1 of those 299 people out of 2,800. I hope I am! : (

I don't get this.

Surely there are more than a thousand or two people doing Higher English in Scotland. Doesnt seem to add up this one.

Still sh!ting it for tomorrow.

I think its ONE region's results. Thats the only way because there is more than 2000 candidates sitting Higher English in the whole of Scotland.

I've just had a look at the file, and it looks right to me. Maybe make sure you have selected the 'Higher' tab?

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

SQA never learn. Lots of people failed last year at English and what do they do this year? Give terrible essay questions.

I don't see any of that really matters, all it tells you is how many passed each exam, and how many passed at each level. Your own personal results can't really be predicted, as you don't know the pass mark for an A/B/C etc.

What is everyone hoping for 2moro. I want at least 2 A's and 3 B's.
Physics and English say a B, and one other shock B.

What times peoples post come at? Mines was at 1 o'clock today! ohmy.gif But 11 o'clock on Friday! (so dependable! dry.gif )

Where did you find the file?

I agree aswell, they really are insecure.

I wonder what other stuff is lying about in the site.
