    Hi

    I'm doing Maths SL at the moment and struggling to be honest - predicted grade only a 4 and I really want to drop down to 'Maths Studies SL' instead, and I reckon I can get a grade 7 (I got grade A at Scottish standard grades)

    I'm aiming high and wanting to do medicine at Dundee Uni and they do accept Maths studies as an SL option so that's ok, BUT......

    ...it's my 2nd choice Uni subject studies like Medical Sciences BSc, Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry etc and the entry requirements just state "mathematics" and don't say whether they include "Maths Studies' at all. Some unis specifically state if Maths Studies isn't acceptable (St Andrews/Aberdeen) but Dundee doesn't state this!

    So I've emailed them but waiting to hear back is killing me.... does any one know if Dundee Uni Life Sciences degrees will accept Maths Studies???

    Thanks

    Bob.

    I think that you should email the admissions tutors and ask them exactly what they mean (usually there is a link on the course description part of the website).

    If you are truly struggling, I think that you should change to Maths Studies while you're quite early in the Diploma, because it will make life a lot easier for you

    Sorry if im a bit too late, I am in the exact same situation as you, Dundee do not accept maths studies as a course BUT they will accept National.5/ Intermediate 2 grades if higher than a C, So by that aspect you would still be considered but you'll need to specify the fact that you did scottish qualifications before IB because some unis dont even think that IB students did scottish int.2/nat.5 grade subjects before
