    Hello, I am in 6th year at the moment doing my highers as basically I screwed them up in 5th. I'v got some conditionals to Scottish university's which is great but... before a few years ago I lived in England and would love to move back and originally would have wanted to go to university there, nothing against the scotts just family etc, but I wouldn't get in anywhere in England with highers as they want advanced highers or A levels.

    Would I be able to transfer to first year of an English uni after first year at a Scottish uni?

    What 1 year courses could I do to help me get into a competitive university in England?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you considered taking a gap year after 6th year and doing some AHs in college then, so then you can apply for first year entry to any English university you want? This would still take you 4 years like you're proposing and would give you a lot more options. It seems pointless to go to a Scottish uni for a year with the objective of transferring at the end of the year as this would be an extra year of living costs/student loans etc. You'd need to be reapplying basically as soon as you'd started university, which is hardly helpful in terms of settling in and having a good year.
