Hi guys,
I'm thinking of applying to St Georges for medicine and it says "standard grade 2 english is required", I got a B in National 5 English, do i meet the requirement?
Any help would be much appreciated!

I assume by "Standard Grade 2" they mean pass Standard Grade with grade 2 or above, which is equivalent to a pass at National 5 (C) or above. So you meet the requirement, and they should probably update their criteria to include that.

I understand where PTS is coming from but I read the entry requirements slightly differently...
It has always been my understanding that of the standard grades 1-7, 1-2 is a A at nat 5, 3-4 a B etc.
Regardless, I'd email the university just to check, or send them your results and ask them to confirm that they're in line with their current entry requirements

Haha I suppose but its just because the years we were born (I assume) as I've just left in May and the 1999 lot will be in their last year of school and applying to uni this session

Standard Grades seemed a little odd to me, Grade 1-2 were Credit Level and equivalent to National 5 (A-C), Grades 3-4 were General Level and equivalent to National 4 (or National 5 D/No Award as part of Recognising Positive Achievement I think its called), Grades 5-6 were Foundation Level and equivalent to National 3, and Grade 7 was a fail. But of course it is always a good idea to call them anyway to double check if your not sure.
