There does appear to be a LOT of confusion regarding grade D. I did my Highers at College and I asked a couple of the college lecturers what a D stood for and they told me it is a 'FAIL'. It is not a pass. I just means you have just failed the external exams. A lot of people do seem to think it is a pass and I think this needs to be clarified as some people in my English class got grade D and now they seem to think they have passed Higher English when they haven't......

I guess some of the universities with the easiest course entry requirements may choose a candidate that has, for instance, CCCD over a candidate with just CCC.

A "D" does show that you got >45% (or thereabouts) though.

Still, if we are assuming that two candidates - let's say for a course with CC entry - are exactly the same in all other aspects, then I wouldn't be that surpsied if a candidate with a D grade was chosen over a candidate without any third grade.
Of course a D grade won't be of any use in applying for most degree courses, but I wasn't implying that it was.

Not really Dave, if you get a D in both prelim and exam maybe but only in exam no. I got a NO AWARD in my advanced higher and I do actually know the stuff, had a bad day.
Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!
