An HNC is equivalent to the 1st year at university (an HND is Y2) so may affect your entitlement to student finance at any university, nevermind Oxford.

Are you currently studying A-levels at school, or something else?

I am currently studying Highers at my final year of secondary school, but i do not take advance highers so its not possible for me to leave straight on from school as i do not have enough grades

Frankly if your Highers aren't strong I suspect Oxford is out of reach. A more realistic route may be to get your undergrad in Scotland and then look at Oxbridge for a postgraduate degree.

Thanks for your quick response I also appreciate your forwardness, is there any other possible routes you could suggest. I have predicted grades A this year and Oxford does say they take HNC and HND grades A with a good comment from your lecturer could I not use the As if i get them from year with an HNC?

Yes you're quite right - I hadn't checked ... mea culpa.

However it would be worth speaking to Oxford to see if they have actually accepted Scottish students in your situation. I suspect it's a rather uncommon route.
