    I got AAABCCDD in my National 5s, and want to apply to Computer Science at uni this year (I've already started my application).
    Are my National 5 grades too low for me to get a conditional offer from some unis?
    (I've been programming for years, and can code in 5 languages, not including HTML & CSS)
    What unis are you applying to in Scotland?

    Edinburgh Napier, Abertay, Robert Gordon, University of Stirling, and University of Edinburgh (didn't post this as a reply at first :/)
    I imagine all of those, bar Edinburgh (they are exceptionally competitive for CS) will be OK with it. If you have As/Bs in Maths and English, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    I would call up some of the better unis for CS like Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen to see what they think about your situation. Then include them into your list.

    Also, it might matter what subjects you did and what Grade you got for those subjects?
