I'm wanting to apply for adult nursing at scottish universties but dont have national 5 maths. I've been told if I have the hnc care and admin it wont matter if I have a level 4 in maths? Can anyone tell me if that's true? I also have two highers (modern studies at and psychology) and lots of care experience
