UCAS points - Scottish qualifications watch

    • Thread Starter


    Some help required!! Not sure if I'm just being silly!

    I went to school north of the border and so instead of A Levels, have Highers / Advanced Highers but live in London and am applying for jobs down here.

    For all grad schemes they tend to give UCAS point requirements in terms of A-levels - ie 320 points from 3 A levels, but when it comes to Scottish qualifications what are they interested in?!

    Is it all highers from first sitting, top 4/5 all together, only advanced highers, or a combination of both?!

    Any help is much appreciated from someone that has shed any light on this....

    I'm not sure if I satisfy the minimum criteria as it doesn't seem clear what they're looking for....

    Thank you!
