    Univeristies might want points from one over the other but combining subjects is possible in many circumstances.

    Am I right you can't "double up" points for the same subject across 2 exam systems. E.g. Maths A-Level and Maths Advanced Higher.

    They would allow one or other, not both?

    You can't double-up as that is like entering the same qualification twice- but if all your qualifications are on your UCAS form they will just use the points from which ever one is higher (It would be the same as if you had been in Scotland and done Higher and Advanced Higher Maths- they would only count the Advanced Higher points)

    People move and take different qualifications all the time- and some private schools in Scotland take a mixture of Scottish and English exams - so they may have seen this before- but if you are worried you could email the admissions departments of the universities you apply for and highlight that your qualifications are from two different systems
