    Every time I see anything related to Scotland its either raining or gloomy. It seems as though no one is living there! And the news seem to highlight it by saying theres either one student in one school or no students at all. Is that even true? I wanna know what Scotland is like from the schools to unis (if there are any). And whatever else there is to know really. :holmes:

    Scotland is just like any other place yes it's cold and yes it can be gloomy but it's also pretty and the culture is awesome. We have three/four levels of education

    Nursery: age 4/5
    Primary School: ages 5-11
    Secondary School: ages 11-17/18
    University

    But our education is completely free...even university...most of the schools have a uniform

    Some mostly pastoral though and university education is only free for scots/people who have lived there for x amount of years I'm afraid...otherwise your looking at £1000 maybe more per year I think not as bad as England or the US

    500 students! BBC need to get their facts straight then lol. Sounds like England with all the rain one minute and then sunshine. Its nice to hear about Scotland from the locals. The Glasgow accent is awesome.

    No different to the rest of the UK then...

    Edinburgh is nice, looks Victorianesque (if you like that, which I do) went to the Royal Mile and many night time ghost tours.
