I asked this in the Medicine forum, but don't seem to be getting many replies so decided to ask here.
I have a few questions about applying for Medicine in Scottish unis. I am in S5 and my grades are as follows.
N5: English, Maths, Biology, Physics, Music Tech. ABBBC (English is at C)
Higher: English, Maths, Biology, Physics, Music Tech. 5 A's predicted.
1. Most unis require English at a minimum of B at Nat5, but since I am doing it in Higher and possibly getting an A wouldn't that override the C from Nat5?
2. When should I apply? End of this year? I will have to crash Higher Chemistry so I suppose all offers if any will be conditional, is that right?
3. Should I even try applying with this grades at Nat5? Do they matter? I have good work experience planned for the summer and volunteering too.
