    St Andrews, Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt, Strathclyde (I only applied for 4): all unconditional
    I also got a Cambridge interview but I withdrew my application before doing it.

    I moved to Scotland after my GCSE's so this might not be helpful but anyway
    Advanced Highers: Math, Physics, French (AAB)
    Highers: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Classical Studies, History (all A)

    GCSE's: 8 A*, 2 A

    Extra-curricular: helped out in lower year maths classes, mentored younger pupils
    Did outside reading (mostly popular science books and New Scientist).

    I did have extenuating circumstances so I'm not sure if I got a pass for my lack of EC's or if they didn't really care because I was applying for maths.
