Which English universities could an exceptional Scottish student stand a chance in directly from S5?
I know that Leeds requires 6 Highers, or 1 Advanced Higher + 5 Highers. This is a workload which is achievable in S5, though requires excellent grades at minimum plus other achievements to win over the competition. Has anyone managed to skip a year to achieve this?
Durham normally requires 3 Advanced Highers, but can consider you with only Highers if your school doesn't offer.
For University of Birmingham, the website says for numerous courses, only Highers is acceptable.
Has anyone managed it?
