    Hello!

    It completely depends on the university, their requirements and how competitive they are. I would imagine that most universities would be willing to give your friend a conditional offer based on some of their results of 6th year. This is of course after taking into consideration the subjects being taken (and what the ABB was in), the personal statement and the reference. It's not completely ruled but that a university will give her an unconditional based on her 3 Highers this year, but it is unlikely.
    Thanks for your reply, it's kind of you to take the time to help.

    I think she was considering Napier/Stirling/RGU...I know she was talking about Edinburgh but that's probably a bit out of reach. Her A was in English, the B's in Business and Geography - she's taking Advanced Business next year but isn't sure what else. It's reassuring to hear that they'll hopefully be willing to hand out a conditional - I'm so out of touch with this exam/Uni business so I haven't been much use!

    Cool, as long as she doesn't go for all the top universities in the UK, she is likely to be offered a conditional offer. Some universities work it as having to get the grades over 2 sittings, other universities don't mind as long as they have (for example) ABBB by the end of their 6th year.

    I'm asking this on behalf of a friend, any response would be hugely appreciated!

    She got ABB at Higher this year. She also has a bunch of SG's, 2A's and a B at Int 2 from last year and is hoping to do a business related degree at Uni. What are the chances of her still being accepted next year? She's planning on taking 1 Advanced Higher and 3 more Highers in 6th year - will the Uni's be likely to give her a conditional offer based on her performance in 6th year?

    I had a wee look at some Uni courses with her. If the minimum entry requirements are, for example, BBBC or BBBB does she still have a chance even though she only has 3 Higher this year? I can't see anything written on the courses she's interested in about one sitting/two sittings, but she's worried that because she only has 3 Highers she won't be considered.

    Thanks

    Yeah I think i need to sit it at higher as I noticed that strathcylde uni,wants a B int2. If can just pass it next year that would be great. I probably will see if I can get a tutor for it ,if needed. Thank you for the advice and replys
    Hi guys - I will be starting the nightshift soon, but I've got a few things to do for now. Will hopefully be here within the hour - hour and a half. If you haven't had a reply, I'll get back to you then!

    Well done again with all your results again - I've really enjoyed the last 24 hours with the build up and receiving of results!

    Well done! As of next year at our school you can only sit seven, as 8 was thought to be too much work

    Your university (I think anyway...) can tell you your bands, although I'm not sure about percentages.

    [QUOTE=Asklepios;49069370]I had a check, both Edinburgh and HW only ask for a SG/Int2 pass in English. Did you pass last year?

    I got a 2 in Standard Grade last year. My mum just keeps telling me you kind of need it for uni so I should probably give it my best shot.
    I need to make sure I understand everything

    Yep, universities only get the bands. Not the percentages/marks :yep:

    You definitely still have a chance, and are even eligible to get an unconditional at some universities. It just depends on what universities you're interested in and what their requirements are but you're certainly not ruled out. Congratulations on those great results!

    Nope, definitely not. It's quite the norm to be taking 6 actually, so colleges and universities will recognise that having 6 is fine. What you do in 5th year will be more important anyway

    It totally depends on the school and the uni/employer will know that, don't worry! I've got 7 Standard Grades( and one Int2), while at other schools - namely privates- I've seen it extended to 9 or 10. I'm not disadvantaged, because the max I could do was 8.

    I thought all schools did 8 standard grades ? I don't think I could manage 8 nat 5 . Well done all those did I suppose everyone kinda sits the same amount of higher which is 4/5 but they won't care how many nat 5s you pass?

    It used to be the case that everyone did 7-9 standard grades/intermediate 2s. Back in the day I did 5 Int2s and 3 standard grades. Now with the new Nationals we're seeing schools only offer 6 subjects.

    Our school let people do 9 (or in some cases 10, I think) Int 2s from my year so I think there must be a fair few schools who do.

    I was hoping someone could offer me some advice. I didn't meet the conditions for my firm choice and I phoned them early in the morning and they basically said we still won't offer you a place. However there has still been no update on track.

    Does this mean they could be (hopefully) considering me ?
