Short answer - yes.

Long answer - First, congrats on your results! You may not be overly pleased with them but that's still a pretty good foundation you've set up there. Unis are more interested in the Highers you do if that's what you're going on to do next year. Do you know how many Highers you'll be able to do? Your school may allow you to take a number even in the subjects you get Cs in. As long as you meet basic Nat 5 requirements (this will depend on your course, i.e. Maths and English grade C, Science at C), the rest of your grades won't have much of an effect on your applications.

I think it depends what course you want to do. My daughter got BCCD last year AAB this year (she dropped AH english as didn't need for offer) and just got accepted to Edinburgh she had offers from all 5 choices including Glasgow but was Dumfries campus as main campus wanted results in S5. She had strong statement/references and many extra's. It can be done with some courses. Also check you were not off by 1 or 2 marks maybe can get remark.

Would you mind telling me what subjects your daughters grades were in and what course she got accepted for at university, basically because I just found out that I got similar results -B,C,C,C,D - and thought that no uni would take me, especially a Russel group uni like Edinburgh. Thanks a lot.
