    Hi everyone I study English Literature (year 1) in Scotland and my grades are around 62 to 68 (in English and Linguistics modules). I'm an EU student so I'm not sure what is the equivalent of my high school grades in the system here. But I would say it must be around A.
    Has anyone been transferred to the University of Edinburgh with this kind of grades? I've heard it's a very competitive university so I was wondering if it's realistic to hope for a transfer with these grades. And if I apply, are there any tips?

    WIth any transfer there's too many variables to offer advice. Get in touch with them and ask them directly if you would be able to transfer or if they'll consider you.

    I eventually did and they said that my application would be less competitive because I'm just above the minimum requirements And that the offers are usually to those who have almost perfect grades. I don't know if I should bother applying.

    You will never know unless you try. At least if you get rejected you know your reached for what you really wanted.

    You would normally have someone from your current university provide your reference.

    Ideally not- I think it should reflect your Uni study as well- but it is physically possible

    I think UCAS asks if you've applied before- then it won't be self-plagiarism.

    Your education section should include your attendance and any credits you’ll receive from university.
