So I am in S6 and I needed a B for minimum requirements and got a C instead. Now I have AABC and needed AABB. I don't know what to do since I'm past school now and have no idea how to take highers after

I believe you can sit most Highers at College.

You may also be able to apply as a "Ghost Candidate?" (I think that's what their called but I'm not 100% certain). Basically you register at a local school for an exam (you will have to pay to sit it) but don't go into the school to learn. It's like self-learning, but you take the exam at the end.

Well done on your results! You could ask for a remark. Was it unexpected? Or did you feel the exam didn't go well?

It was completely unexpected because I had received a very high A in the prelim. I have no clue what happened

I live in a rural areas where the only highers offered at college are ones I already have like English. I have been wanting to talk to the school about something but haven't been able to contact them

When schools re-open, go up and ask someone of authority who will be able to help you.

Had you already applied for the course you needed the grades for?

Sorry, missed this before! Your former school may be willing to accept you as like an external candidate, so you wouldn't go to school, but they'd act as an exam centre. I think there are a couple of colleges that have a couple of distance learning options for highers- not so much choice in terms of what subjects you can do those in, but there are a couple of options that are out there
