Does anyone know Oxbridge's (specifically Oxford's) attitude toward SQA appeals?
Under the Scottish system, if you get a lower-than-expected grade in the final exam then you can appeal, and, evidence permitting, upgrade your result. It usually takes sbout 3-4 weeks for people who need the grade for a uni application, according to the website.
I think legally, in terms of UCAS rules, an appealed grade is equal to a normal grade, but does anyone know if Oxbridge/-ford would reject someone with AAA at Advacned HIgher to whom they made an offer, if they had to appeal?
I emailed the SQA and they said it's the individual uni's decision, and I emailed the modlangs dept at Ox and they said it's the college's decision, but I doubt the college would have a policy on it, since it's such a rare scenarion for english unis.
