Help.....Im Scottish

#1
I understand the UCAS points system but can find nothing about Scottish qualifications. So what's the score? What qualifications count? Is it only highers?

Sorry lad, but Scottishness is incurable.That said, it is encouraging that you've recognised that you have a problem and are willing to seek help for it. Ginger cnut.

Have you got a galloping heroin/crack/meth habit?

Are you dependant on alchohol?

Are you addicted to deep fried anything with sugar on top, and grossly overweight?

Have you harboured sectarian and bigoted thoughts since you were conceived in a bush shelter in Springburn?

Do you like singing about Scotland, but don't like living there?

These are the qualifications required to be Scottish, I hope you are successful.

have a look at this website:

http://www.ucas.com/students/ucas_tariff/tarifftables/

contains most 'exotic' qualification types.
I understand that bit but can't find which grades the army actually accept. I mean look at the list....

Advanced Higher
Higher
Intermediate 2
Standard Grade
Intermediate 1
Core Skills
etc etc lol

Do they accept points from them all or is it onlye Advanced Higher and Higher like the navy do?

Well, at least we can spell "dependent" and "alcohol". ;)

An overly complicated education system is obviously one of the (many) downsides of devolution. I would take an educated guess and say that they would take into account points obtained in exams taken during the equivalent of 6th form for those who take A level / IB.

Looking at the list you could probably otherwise qualify points-wise via a combination of fine musical ability and a couple of bookkeeping exams.

Of course you can, it's on every piece of paperwork you own.

•There is no ceiling to the number of points that can be accumulated.
•There is no double counting. Certain qualifications within the Tariff build on qualifications in the same subject. In these cases only the qualification with the higher Tariff score will be counted. This principle applies to:
◦GCE Advanced Subsidiary level and GCE Advanced level
◦Scottish Highers and Advanced Highers◦
Key Skills at level 2, 3 and 4
◦Speech, drama and music awards at grades 6, 7 and 8.

Very far from an educated guess. Scotland's education system has always been separate from England's. Nothing to do with devolution, I'm afraid.

Correct, oldest system in the world. Still a complicated bugger of a thing!

I'm fairly sure the army use it the same as if you were applying for university, so it would only be your highers and advanced highers that would count. That's the basis I worked on when I applied.

The minimum qualifications aren't that high, basically if it's enough to get into uni it's probably confortably above the minimum. I however got screwed for not having gcse french, I had to take the bloody thing in an evening class. Not that you were probably wondering.
