    Hi guys, I have a little problem at the moment. Basically, I absolutely failed my Intermediate 2 Maths and never bothered resitting. Stupid I know.

    I now want to apply to do Classical Studies at St Andrews, which has a minimum requirement of AABB at Higher, with a requirement for Maths at Credit level at Standard Grade.

    I achieved Five A's at Higher
    Five A's at Int 2
    A B in Int 2 Biology, a C in Int 2 Computing and B in Int 2 Maths.

    I've emailed the Admissions at St Andrews and have recieved two contrasting replies. One said the Biology could be used in lieu of the maths deficency, the other said it would be unlikely...

    So, basically, is it worth me applying or should I look elsewhere?
