Firstly, I apologise if I am posting this in the wrong sub-forum but any advice or comments are most welcome!
Also this is a copy and paste from a post I just made on another forum
Before I go into my question I think I should give some relevant information about myself :
- I am 18 years old and has finished Highschool
- I am not considered a mature student/adult returner
- My qualifications are really low and I don't even have a single Higher
- I am a resident in Scotland
I have been trying to explore different entry routes into Edinburgh University to study the MA Japanese degree there but it seems like all those other options are not available to me because I'm not considered an adult returner yet. To be considered an adult returner would mean I will have to stay away from education for 3 years in a row and this is something I would definitely try to avoid!
I believe my only possible entry route into Edinburgh University is to achieve AABB Highers in one sitting which I really want to do but to my knowledge the Edinburgh College will only allow allow you to take 2 highers per year so I can not complete the 4 highers in one sitting...
So my questions is how can I overcome this predicament of not being able to study 4 highers in one sitting?
Any advice or comments will be greatly appreciated!

As far as I know, there is no minimum age for doing a SWAP course. These are designed for people in your situation who want to go to university. See here for more information: http://www.scottishwideraccess.org/national-about-swap

Email the University (either the admission's department or the head of the course), and explain your situation to them (you can do this over the phone as well if you prefer). They should be able to offer you support and advice on gaining access to their course. They may be able to suggest alternative routes that you may not have known about or realised that it would be suitable for your situation etc.
