Got my application in early yesterday, I'm applying for diagnostic imaging

I'm currently studying for biology and maths October exams, predicted BB. Already achieved CCC in bio/maths/phys which was somehow lower than my mocks but oh well. Hopefully it'll all work out in the end, good luck to everyone else who applies here.

Hi guys! I'm applying to this university. I'm new here and just thought I'd start posting to follow everyone's applications as well! I'm a mature student and I'm interested in the BA Media and Communications course. If anyone else is applying to this, let me know! Can't wait to send off my application, just have to decide on other places. So excited to apply to this

I was thinking of putting down GCU for Law but I'm not sure. I got AAABC at Highers in August (the C was really disappointing, I was sick for the Dec prelim so did worse on it then usual then it ended up being the only thing they used for my grade for that class due to corona. I know I could have done well in the real exam). Their "standard entry" for Law says AABBB. Anyone know if they'd be likely to take AAABC instead?

Are these the subjects you’re taking in S5 or S6?

Hi Everyone😉
I am currently on my 2nd Year of HND Business on Glasgow Kelvin College, and looking into moving to uni next year.
Glasgow Caledonian accept me for 3rd Year Business Degree.
Strathclyde accept me only for 2nd Year Business Degree.
My question is:
does it worth repeat 2nd year and go for Strathclyde Business School
OR
Go sraight to 3rd year on Glasgow Caledonian?
Is that so relevant the reputation of Strathclyde or at the end what matters for business employers is we have been able to finish a degree by ourselves? 🤔
Thanks everyone
