    This may be a stupid question to ask but I can't really find any information about it anywhere else...

    Well I've got a conditional offer for Dundee and all they want me to get is a B at any higher. However I was wondering, say I failed the one higher that I'm doing but got A's in my Advanced Highers. Would that mean I didn't meet their conditions and would therefore get rejected since they asked for a Higher Grade? Or do they take my Advanced Highers into account?

    I hope someone can answer this for me haha. It's stressing me right out :/

    Generally, a grade at Higher is classed as the same as one grade lower at AH. So as you've been asked for a B at Higher, the equivalent would be a C at AH. However, the university may have a minimum number of Higher subjects they want you to have so it could be that they've specifically asked for a Higher grade for this reason.

    I'd contact Dundee and ask them to clarify whether they will allow you to use your AH grades to meet the offer and then ask what grades they would require from you. Ensure you get this in writing (email is fine) so you can use it to back yourself up on results day if you need.
