21 CLYDEBANK HIGH SCHOOL “Labore et Scientia” University Expectations “Applicants may study a subject at Higher Level, even though no qualification is held at National 4 or National 5 Level” “The level of attainment by the end of S5 is all that is regarded” University of Glasgow CfE Statement “We recognise that some students, may progress directly from the Broad General Education to Highers in some, or all, of their subjects, and will therefore not achieve any National 5 qualifications. Our selection criteria and processes will ensure that applicants following this route will not be disadvantaged” University of Edinburgh CfE Statement
