    I got my resuts yesterday AAABB (Scottish Highers). Now Im wondering whether I should apply since my grades are below the mimimum requierments.

    Edinburgh and Glasgow have said my current grades are not acceptable and Aberdeen and Dundee may consider with appropriate level of study in s6.

    I have looked at some English Unis and Kings College are asking BBB (highers) and AA (Advanced Highers). Liverpool are asking AAAAA-AABBB.

    What do peope suggest? Should I appy or just pack it in and do another degree?

    Don't pack in yet.

    Look for Scottish equovelet (sp?) on uni websites/ UCAS. You will pay £3225 a year to go to uni here or wales, not including accomadtion, e.t.c. Results day for us is 20 August, same as our Clearing day...

    Good luck :top:

    I would have thought that even if you didn't meet the required grades you could get a conditional for 6th year where you could obtain A's for Advanced Highers and get in. If they don't do that it's pretty unfair!

    I know someone who got AAABB in 5th year and got a conditional of ABB in 2 adv. highers and a higher from Aberdeen. So yeah it maybe a long shot but the whole process is a lottery you may as well give it a shot!

    There are quite a few people with AAABB that got conditionals at Aberdeen this year actually.

    It may be a lottery, but good volunteering and work experience will definitely help your odds!

    dont pack it in. keep with the degree you want to do. just apply to universities whose entry requirements you can realistically achieve
