    Im applying for mech eng at Glasgow and Strathclyde. I got 4A's and a B at higher with english, maths, chemistry and human bio at A and then physics was my B.
    The requirements for masters have higher physics at A for both but I've been told I can get into batchelors for both probably with an unconditional. Is it worth applying for masters for a conditional or just working to try and move up once I'm at University as I've been told is fairly common.
    Im studying Maths, Chemistry and Physics at Advanced Higher this year and am predicted AAB and have pretty good references from my teachers. Cheers

    It's generally a better idea to do your undergrad first and then think about the masters. You may change your mind or decide on a different area of specialisation or even want to change uni later.

    Once you're in university, you can usually transfer freely between BEng and MEng, providing you have the grades, so you might as well apply to whichever on you are more confident of getting an offer for.

    Strathclyde is very competitive, so if it was me I might be tempted to apply to the BEng just to be safe.

    It's an integrated degree consisting of bachelors study then an additional masters year.

    (We have them in England too...)
