That's pretty much my view. She admits herself that her coursework wasn't the best it could have been but she was confident that she would repeat her prelim result or even better it. And had the lockdown not started then I was getting her to visit a tutor once week in the build up, which I appreciate can't be taken into account.
Thanks for the advice mate. Her option is to take a year out and apply for college starting next September where she can get her grade and start as a second yer Uni student the following year, but I'll certainly pass onto her what you said.
I don't know if that's true or not but I have one very unhappy 17 year old daughter.
Her twin sister got all of her Highers last year so qualified for Uni a year early. My other twin, however, did poorly last year and needed one more higher of C or above to get into Uni for nursing. She achieved that grade in her prelims but taking her coursework into account they gave her a D.
