    Haha! I'm from Scotland, (originally from England), so I didn't do A levels. Things work really different up here, i'm not quite sure what the equivalent of A levels is though!

    I think the Scottish equivalent is something called 'Highers'?

    Okay, in that case I did those a year ago and got an A, three Bs and a C, which is what I was offered an unconditional on. I just did something called Advanced Highers for 6th year. Have you just got your A level results?

    Thats really good! Obviously you got the grades you needed then!

    I would find that nerve wracking, here you already have your grades when you apply for uni so you can get an unconditional, instead of conditionals!

    That sounds like such a better system than having to rely on getting those grades and stressing about how well you've done and whether you have to go through Clearing

    Are you moving to Stirling or are you commuting?

    Yeh, I think it is a better system!

    I'm going to into the university accomodation at Stirling, I live on the Black Isle just above Inverness so I don't have a choice! :P
