    Hey,

    I am losing my patience with England, heh. Basically, a pre-requisite of applying to medical school in many places, even as a graduate, is a B at GCSE English.

    My problem lies in that I was educated in Scotland, and I have a 2 at Standard Grade English and a C at Higher. For some reason, England generally regards my Higher C as a GCSE, which shouldn't be the case, and recommend I don't apply as a result!

    So can anyone enlighten me on whether this C at Higher English can be altered? I will be too busy to go back to college and do my higher English all over again...hmpf. Rant over.

    Though I can't imagine them getting it wrong...
