Poor grades for a mature student

I only have one Higher, but have relevant employment experience in Business. Will my poor grades stop me from getting into a university in Scotland?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi Sean,

I think you should contact a few universities to find out for sure. Your work experience may replace any conventional academic qualifications, but universities have to be sure that you will be equipped to deal with the academic rigour of the course.

Good luck.
