Yeah, that's what I thought as well. Standard Grades are equivalent to GCSEs, then Highers and Advanced Highers are equivalent to AS and A levels.

Well technically, yes. But in reality Highers are generally considered as more valuable than AS Levels (even get higher points from UCAS) and quite a few English universities acknowledge that Advanced Highers are harder than A-Levels.

Oh right, I didn't know that- never really looked at the UCAS Tarrif in detail, it's too confusing!
