    Hello, I got ABC in my S5 highers. I would like to apply to Aberdeen for Business with International Relations next year but I've looked on their website and they ask for BBB in S5 in order to enter the course in two sittings. Will I get a conditional offer?

    Well done! I'm hoping to apply to do international relations there also yeah you'd get a conditional likely

    Basically you'll be doing an interdisciplinary project on top of your AHs. Keep in mind that you'll already be doing three science investigations so it will be a lot of work in s6. No university for medicine, as far as I'm aware, looks at ScotBacc.

    So really it's up to you whether you WANT to do it or not. Don't choose to do it because you feel it will put you in a better position with UCAS.

    Hmmm OK thanks. So say I don't do the baccalaureate, do u think I would be silly doing both the highers (business and pe) along with the 3 AH?

    Hey there! I know I'm a bit late here but was hoping for some advice...On Tuesday I received my results and was pleased to achieve the following results:

    Higher English- A (complete surprise)
    Higher Maths- B(tad upset as was best subject throughout the year)
    Higher Physics- B
    Higher Chemistry- B
    Higher German- C(got a B in my prelim but life goes on I guess haha)

    Anyhow, I'm interested in engineering courses at Strathclyde and heriot watt and am aware the former will probably not even consider me, but it states heriot watt's standard entry requirements are BBBBC or AABB and while I'm aware I have exceeded them(only slightly) I understand that people with much higher than me will also apply... Am I still in for a shot of getting a conditional offer? Thanks in advance and congrats on everybody's fantastic results!

    Oh also should probably mention I'm hoping to sit AH maths, AH graph comm, H music and H art next year

    I'm a little late to the discussion, but yeah, 'twas good news for me. Some of you may remember the drama I posted about a few months back, to do with my physics investigation. Despite my teacher telling me I'd fail and deserve to, and actively trying to fail me off of the course and convince me to not bother sitting the exam, I managed to get an A in Physics, and As in Maths, Mechanics, and English too. Which got me into Imperial to study Physics w/ Theoretical Physics for the next four years. Somehow, a miracle has been worked, thanks to a dollop of perseverance and a whole heaping tonne of luck and help from others.
    So, thanks to the TSR ScotQuals community for the support and advice whenever I popped in throughout the year, and I hope you all got the grades you wanted.

    EDIT:
    TL;DR is I got 4 As at AH for Maths, Phys, Mechanics, and English, which got me into ICL to do a Phys w/ Theoretical Phys 4-year MSci. Thanks to everyone who helped out when I popped in here throughout the year.

    Hey, really well done on your results, you should be really happy with them!

    Yes, you are still in with a shot of a conditional offer - they don't purely look at grades, they will look at you as a person as well, with the interview (if you have one) and your Personal Statement taken into consideration as well!

    As far as Im aware, you should be able to speak to your school/college to enquire about marks...

    Someone please correct me if Im wrong - Anyway, really well done with the results!

    All you would need for university is 3AHs. Anything more isn't necessarily silly as there is more to studying school subjects that simply getting into uni! If you enjoy business and PE and want to study them, then by all means go ahead. Same applies for the Scottish Baccalaureate IP.

    Yep, but some schools don't like telling you marks. They're technically not supposed to anyway. However, if you're persistent enough you should be able to find them out.

    I thought it was only bandings the school could share with us? In fourth year for the two int2s I sat I was only told the bands

    It depends on the level of competition and on the strength of other parts of your application. If your predicted grades are strong (say > BB in your AHs and an A in your H) and you have a good personal statement then they may consider you for a conditional offer.

    The best thing to do would be to phone or email the university and ask whether it is likely they would consider you.

    Okay thanks a lot! I'll keep all that in mind. I'm also hoping to do the Scottish baccalaureate in S6 and I think HW welcome that as an improvement on your application so think I might apply to 3 "safe" choices and 2 riskier ones and just see how it goes
