This question may sound completely stupid, but i just picked my course choices for S6 last week and i picked 2 AH's, 1 Higher and a N5. Although, after reading into it and hearing things from teachers etc, it seems as though unis don't really accept AH's in place of a Higher.

for example, strathclyde asks for AAAABBB (i think) for S6 requirements for law. so say i got 3A's 2B's this year (which would miss the S5 requirements by one grade), but in S6 i get BB at Advanced Higher, does this exceed the requirements or is this not counted for?

im just wondering if this is true or not. if anybody knows any info on this it would be really helpful!!

From what I understand the minimum at first sitting is ABBBB, and then an extra B if you're doing a 2nd sitting. You're doing 3 subjects at AH/Higher level so you're exceeding the requirements. But you can always email the admission team if you want to be sure.

those requirements are from widening access which i dont qualify for.

so do you know if they would count an advanced highers into the higher requirements?

usually scottish universities will take a B at advanced higher as equivalent to an A at higher!
