I'm going into s6 this year so I'll be applying to Uni for next year. I got a No Award/F in Higher Maths and I was wondering how this would affect my application. I got 3A's and 1B on my other Higher's so I already have the grades I need to get in but will my F make them more likely to reject me?

Unless your course is Maths related, I doubt it.
Unis tend to look at what good grades you do have compared to everyone else, not what grades you didn't do brilliantly in.
So the disadvantage really is having 4 strong grades rather than 5 - not that the 5th grade itself was low.

Does that make sense? :curious:

Okay thank you. I'm wanting to do International Business which only requires Nat 5 Maths at a B (which I have)- and you only need Higher Maths if you want to study finance within International Business. I'm going to be doing another 2 Highers this year to make up for my maths grade
