Bursaries may also be awarded to applicants for places in V and VI senior, based on examination results (National 5, Higher or non-Scottish equivalents); and exceptionally they may be offered to other Senior year groups. Bursaries are assessed in January and February each year for entry the following August, and awards are means tested.
