    I have Standard grade Mathematics 5. I want to apply for the police however there is a standard entry test, I am not very good at Maths and I failed it the first time I went to apply for the police. I want to take a course on Maths so I can get up to speed again since leaving school. I want to apply for the National 4 Mathematics as you can do this Online which would be ideal, however will they accept me since I am already qualified in National 5? Any help would be appreciated.

    If you meet their requirements, then I'm sure you would get accepted on the course.

    If you're just wanting to learn/refresh your maths, try the Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org it's free.
