    Advanced Highers
    A - Physics
    A - Computing
    B - Maths

    I'm really upset because I missed my Cambridge offer by 1 A...
    Ahhh! Really sorry mate, and to be so close as well. I'm sure you've made your insurance with fantastic grades like that, though. Cambridge isn't the be all and end all.

    3 As and a B...that's still good enough to get into Glasgow or Edinburgh! Especially since you've still got more Highers to sit in S6. What course is it you want to apply for?
    I'm not sure but ill have to figure out soonish as I need to pick my subjects for s6 in 9 days Do you think the best idea would be to do Adv. Highers or get more highers under my belt?

    If you're not really sure what you want to do, then some more Highers are the way to go! No need to take something ridic like 4 or 5, though. If you really enjoyed a subject this year, there's no harm in pursuing that at Adv Higher.

    Your grades are plenty good enough for most uni courses, so you're literally spoiled for choice.

    thanks a bunch, made me feel a lot better about it! I think I'll take one or 2 advanced and 2 highers. I think ill need to do a lot more in terms of volunteering and stuff to get a better chance of getting in.

    Glad I could help, buddy! I think you're overstressing a bit about your uni application.

    Best of luck deciding, mate. Just think about what you enjoy in life and see if you can incorporate that into a course/career.

    I'm afraid not, mate. The two unis are completely separate and they're no more linked that Glasgow Callie and Harvard are. It might be possible to change uni provided you have good performance in first year, but that's rare too, and only happens in exceptional circumstances.



    If they've said they're going to reject you, then it's unlikely you're going to get an offer in the end, but there's nothing wrong with holding out hope.
    It's not over until Track updates.



    Haha! Thank you!! And congratulations on making it to uni!
    I would like to do law at strathclyde so would the hnd in legal services be preferred as opposed to a transfer of universities?

    I'm afraid I don't really know anything about HNC/HND courses, bud. You'll have to talk to Strathclyde about its acceptance as a qualification!

    Hi, I noticed on Heriott Watt's entry requirements for International Business with Spanish I need to have an A at Higher. I got a B in the exam. I had an A in my prelim so I was on track for an A, I didn't think I had a B. I don't know what I should do know? Should I ask my school about my banding and about a possible remark? It seems like it's unlikely I will get any luck out of it. I could do advanced higher Spanish?
