Anyone who goes there or is applying, what exactly are they looking for especially in Scottish student since I know they like foreign students there. I am aiming for 5 As at higher maths, English, art, music and Graph comm this year and then next year I'm going to do higher business and adv higher music along with either 1/2 adv highers or 1 adv higher and 1 higher. I want to apply for the management Ma and I need AAAB at higher. So how strict are they and are there any tricks to get in? What have people been accepted with and what have others not been accepted with?

Any help would be great, thanks

Honestly, you're going to struggle if you're a Scot, as they will give you the higher end of the offer range, but AH's sound like a good shout

Last year, 10.9% of Scottish/EU applicants received an offer for Management at St Andrews

In contrast, something like 70% of Earth Science applicants got an offer so it really depends on the course

3 years late but anyway. It's easier to get in as an international student than Scot student (and maybe UK idk). I applied as international and got in for Economics and Management but then I got my fee status changed to scot (through EU settlement scheme) so they made my offer void and then rejected it after "reconsideration".
