    Yes. The Scottish education system means local students go to university a year earlier than in England. It's a bit like having a Foundation Year.

    This means English applicants studying A-levels (and indeed Scottish applicants with Advanced Highers) can "skip" the first year.

    Okay, now I have a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have applied from England as BSc (as I want to do 4 years), however I would have preferred to do the MMath. (4 years from Year 2)

    How do I get in touch to let them know? Do I email them? Could it hinder my application?

    Did you apply for the BSc from Year 1, or Year 2? If it was Year 2 it won't make much difference. You can move "up" to the MMath if your marks are good enough.

    It has the same entry requirements.

    If you are unsure, give them a call.

    Year 1. I have sent them an email, apologising for my error and asking them to consider me for Second year. What's the worst that could happen, I guess?

    Thanks for your help.
