    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

    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.
