A levels = highers ?

Question:I was just wondering I did highers, and I don't know what they are in A-levels?

I mean what is a A,B and C in highers in A levels.

I know it doesn't make sense, but I don't know how to word it.

Answers:
A-levels take 2 years rather than the 1 year it takes to do Highers. This means you can't really compare the two directly. I'm not sure how many UCAS points they are worth, but I believe A levels are worth a few more than Highers (you probably sat more subjects than your peer group who did A levels, so the actual points total probably won't be that different). Some people might try and tell you that a Higher is worth half an A level. I do know that is nonsense. The difference isn't as big as that.
I hope that helps a bit.
Anyway, once you go to university and get a degree, no one in their right minds is going to give a monkey's what your school grades were.
