i will be living in england starting Year 12, but next year my family is going to move to Scotland meaning i will be in S6 as of then. I know i wouldn’t have finished my A-Levels by then, but i will need qualifications for university so can i do 5 highers in S6 then leave school and get into university?

Yes you can do highers in S6 and get into Scottish unis and some English ones, in fact most people do. If you however want to go to English unis you will probably need Advanced highers which are the equivalent of A levels for uni entry outside of Scotland or for competitive courses such as medicine

You can, but check with unis and explain your situation. If you want english unis you would have to do advanced highers

Your options for uni will most likely be limited as others have said. 5 highers (assuming you do well) will get you into most Scottish unis. However, English unis often require two or more advanced highers for Scottish students.

There are some English unis that will allow you in with highers. The University of Kent, for example, told me that they accept highers on an individual basis for my modern languages degree.
