    I'm currently in my fifth year of school. I resat national 5 maths this year (standard grade/gcse), although I passed my prelim (barely) I'm worried at the possibility of failing nat 5 maths again meaning I may once again have to sit it next year. As it stands I'm planning on applying for an accountancy and finance degree, do I need higher maths? I won't get considered by the main scottish unis for this course (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Strathclyde, St Andrews) as they all require higher maths. Realistically though would another uni take me with a C in my nat 5 maths if by the end of 6th year I had achieved roughly AAAABB? (AAA end of 5th, ABB end of 6th) I have taken higher maths next year but I really can't see myself passing without getting a tutor, so I'm starting to wonder if I could save myself the hassle and just rely on my B/C in nat 5 maths.

    Unis publish their requirements on their website or in the prospectus. Have a look at unis you're interested in and see what level of maths they require. You're essentially asking people to do this for you, and nobody here will look through hundreds of prospectuses just in case you like that uni and don't consider it too far away/too expensive/too low ranked or whatever.

    I think you've interpreted this post wrong. I'm not asking people to go fishing through the internet for me, I'm simply posting this on the off chance that someone reading is studying or has studied an accountancy degree without having a Higher/A-Level Maths. I listed Universities I could realistically get into, does that not suggest that I've done my research?
