Ahaha yes. I may well do. Have given SA the necessary docs and hope i'm RUK as that is a much harder course to get onto I imagine. Ed is ABB and my predictions are 2A*sA so hopefully won't matter too much there.(Original post by PQ)
The joys of fee status.
It ultimately comes down to the university concerned to determine your fee status.
I'd definitely recommend contacting them in writing and explaining that you'll be applying for a tuition loan and maintenance loan from Student Finance England assuming that they'll charge you the RUK rate.
Ed may be basing it on their assessment last year - you can always ask them to reassess you fully.

Feel like I'm unfairly being classed as an EU student by Scottish universities watch

There is a quota - Scottish universities have strict limits on the number of Scottish/EU entrants they can admit. There's no similar limit to international or RUK entrants as the funding for those students is not subsidised by the Scottish Government.

Probably an arrangement in Scotland - EU/Intendationals make up most of the class in some universities in England
We're talking specifically about Scottish universities who charge lower fees to Scottish and EU students than to students from the rest of the UK.
The places with lower fees are heavily subsidised by SHEFC and to manage their budget there are caps on the number of Scottish and EU students at Scottish universities. There's no cap on students from the rest of the UK.
The OP is not confused. A RUK fee status IS likely to improve their chances of an offer compared to an EU status.
