This is a genuine question I’m in Glasgow, Scotland (UK) & in high school last year (6th forum) and here we do highers and advanced highers when I go to college next year will I be doing GSCES and or A levels?

And if I do (GSCES & or A levels in college) what’s the point in doing highers and advanced highers in high school then?

As far as I’m aware, GCSEs are the English Equivalent of Nationals & A Levels are the English Equivalent of Highers/Advanced Highers.

So if you achieve Scottish awards I don’t see why you’d have to do English equivalents afterwards

We do Nat 5's, Highers and AHs. We don't do GCSEs or A Levels here.

If you go to college after high school in Scotland after completing Highers and/or Advanced Highers you would usually do a HNC or HND, depending on what you want to do. GCSE’s are the English equivalent of National 4/5’s and A-levels are the English equivalent of Highers.
Hope this helps

It depends where you are going, there's a private school in the town next to me that does GCSE'S and A-Levels instead of higher's and all that
