    Hi, i was wondering if i could still get into strathclyde uni to study biochemistry if i recieved two Cs in my highers when i was predicted As in both. I feel really disappointed in myself as i was not expected them at all. I recieved a B in both Higher English and Higher Business also. I want to do AH English at the caledonian hub and biology at AH but i do not know if i will be allowed as it depends on how many people are applying to do the same.

    What do i do? I am also planning to crash Higher History and Geography and resit Higher Chemistry. Is this a good choice?

    Have you considered remarks? If you had done really well through out the year for biology and chemistry and you were predicted an A you could always consider that.
    I can't advise you sadly on what you should take as its quite a difficult situation. However, you could find out if you are close to a B for your sciences and get a remark

    If you're crashing two new highers and resitting one I'd forgo one of your two AHs, specifically, English - considering the degree you want to study. (I don't know anyone who took a whole set of 5 subjects in 6th year, and unis never really give out conditions on AHs anyways so you'd probs find yourself shunting it to the side in order to meet your offer)
