I didn't get my results till ten minutes ago becuase I was on work experience and I wanted to open the envelope myself.
Well done everyone!
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!

got an A in computing and modern studies, a B in maths and history and a C in english!
I was ill and did not do the history exam so was quite pleased my appeal came through with my results although I thought i had more than enough for an A but a B is good and can still take AH..............a thot i did really well in english but the C just proves that I should give up on that subject!!!!!!!

A in Art, IS and English and Bs in Physics and Maths. I was a bit disappointed with the Maths and Physics but I'm over it now lol cos my mates about to kill me for saying it.

I really angry/gutted at my results cos i always felt i did better than that
The irony is with these results i could easily get into 90-95% of all the course scotland uni's have to offer, problem is that it doesn't include MEng computer science and most people and my friend beat me with their results
If i am not here i am somewhere else

For my prelims, I got A's for Maths, Computing and Physics, and Fails for English and Chemistry.
Now my resultsh ave came through, I got an A for physics and computing, a B for maths, and a C for chemistry and a fail for English.
I'm dissapointed that I went from a A to a B for my maths, but happy as I went from a fail to a C for int 2 chemistry (the only int2 I'm sitting),.,,,
Anyone got advice?
p.s. In my maths prelim I got 80.1%....
Posted 10 August 2004 - 07:42 PM
I got (all AHs by the way):
A for biology, B for maths and chemistry
I wanted to get an A for maths but I am pleased about my chemistry mark as I didn't feel the exam went too well.

Well my post didnt come.. at all. Yesterday it came at like 6.55 so i was up at about 7.15 waitin for my results.. but no. Five hours later i went round to the post office to ask.. they said that a postman was off ill and they were just leaving my street till last! oh boy i was mad!
Anyway.. im chuffed to bits with my results, i got A's in maths,german and physics and B's in chemistry and english. So chuffed i was thinkin that i wouldnt even pass chemistry!
Does anyone know, for appeals is it possible for you to go up 2 or more grades? For example, can you go from a C to an A? I was under the impression you couldnt.
Posted 10 August 2004 - 09:32 PM
How, do you know anyone that has had their grade go from a C to an A? I was under the impression that you could only move up to the next band (or maybe it is the next grade?), but then again I don't really know that much about appeals.
Anyway, well done!

To answer your question, I think it's unlikely the SQA will upgrade people 2 grades (from C---->A), it's just too big a jump. I've also heard that the SQA rarely give out A's ....

For my prelim I was predicted 5 A's.
However exam results give me 3 A's and 2 B's
The two B's were for:
Chemistry - 80% prelim mark
English - 78.5% prelim mark
I am not sure whether the SQA look at appeals for upgrades to my type of results to bring them up to what was expected so I don't know whether to try or not. To be honest I don't want to waste anyone's time but I would like to see them upgraded because I felt that I had done better and I have let down my school; my teachers; and myself.
What do I do? I need some plain talking advice!
Posted 10 August 2004 - 11:43 PM
if ur not going to need the better results then i'd not appeal
if u have a really strong appeal fair enough, but prelims arent the only thing they look at
NABs and practice papers are also useful
