Scottish Qualifications

#1
My friend wants to apply to apply to become an officer. He has several qualifications but isn't sure which qualifications are allowed in the 180 point score as he has seen contradicting information.

So which of the following count and for how much?

Higher
Intermediate 2
Standard Grade
Core Skills
Higher level NQs
Higher National Units

Thank you :)

Eh of the top of his head he has.....

Higher
Modern Studies B
English C
Geography D

Also has all the internal assesments for Higher Chemistry, Physics and Biology but his course never required him to pass the external exam ie NQ Access to Science

Intermediate 2
History A
Physics B
English A

Standard Grades
Modern Studies 2
Social and Vocational Skills 2
English 3
Physics 3
Mathematics 3
Music 4
Art 4

Intermediate 1 IT units and Religious, Moral & Philisophical Studies units

He can't remember the rest, thinks he has all core skills at higher + higher national units of psychology and politics.

He is 22 and is thinking about Logistics, says he is not to fussed if he doesn't meet the grade. Will happily go in as a Personel Logistician.

Your mate sounds like an absolute potato and can't really be serious if he's subjugating you to do it for him.

Only the B & C at higher will count and this will be 108 UCAS points. The full amount needs to be 180.

So only highers count for Scottish qualifications?

Actually, I rather think RO77 maybe correct as Scottish intermediate qualifications are not accepted as equivalent to GCSEs or AS levels unfortunately.

Assuming your mate can work a telephone, he may like to dial 08456 07 55 55 for definitive advice or check out the AFCO link in the signature block below to speak directly to a Scottish AFCO who are probably better placed to give definitive advice with regard accepted qualifications.

Sorry, "me no speakie the lingo, pour favor, by-the-wey".

Best of luck.

The minimum acceptable grades for each contributing subject has been increased from 40 to 45 UCAS points, so the following will no longer be acceptable:

1. A-Level Grade E or lower;
2. AS-level Grade C or lower;
3. Scottish Higher Grade D or lower;
4. Scottish Intermediate any grade.
Ipso Factso.
