    Masters and Bachelors are different degrees. Some Scottish Universities call what is basically a Bachelors a Masters as it lasts a year longer (MA, honours/undergraduate). To get an actual postgraduate Masters, you would have to apply to study for it regardless when you reach the final year of your undergraduate degree. (PG Masters degrees in some Scottish unis go by Msc, MLitt etc etc).

    Im a physics undergrad and for the first 2 years people studying the MPhys Physics, MPhys Physics with research, BSc Physics and BSc Physics with Teaching are all in the same lectures and all need the same amount of points to pass year 1 and 2. Although the people doing the MPhys's need to secure a higher average grade than the people doing BSc's in second year otherwise they will be demoted to the BSc. If someone does exceedingly well in the BSc they may be promoted to the MPhys.

    True although it's still a Masters degree and it still puts you at a significant advantage over people graduating with a BA
