If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Wow! 6 Highers!? That must have been fun! I did 5 this year:
  • Higher English
  • Higher Maths
  • Higher Business Management
  • Higher Computing
  • Higher Chemistry
For next year (S6) I'm a bit undecided. So far I'm doing:
  • Advanced Higher Business Management
  • Higher Modern Studies (which I'm crashing)
  • Higher Biology
I can't decide whether to do Advanced Higher Computing or Advanced Higher Chemistry (I've been predicted A's for both as well as my other subjects). Please help me choose! I want to do Pharmacy when I leave.

think I'm applying to Charles University in Prague, La Sorbonne, Dublin and a couple of American ones. Getting the hell away from Scotland! I've had enough! If I don't get in to medicine i think i'll apply to do French Studies and Psychology at the AUP but I really want to become a doctor, hopefully in psychiatry or emergency medicine. Any of the other med applicants have an idea of which branch of medicine they'd like to go into?

I'm doing crash higher history too. I think it should be fine. I've done geography which I suppose is kind of similar.

Medicine - I would love to do medicine but I don't see me getting into the course. If I did I'd probably want to do psychiatry as well. If I don't get the grades I might do psychology cause it's sort of linked to psyciatry in a different distant way! I really want to go to Glasgow Uni... I'm a home person!

Crash History - History is great fun and you don't really need any knowledge of the Sg course at all! A bit of background is always helpful but don't worry about it! If you ahve good analytical and essay writing skills you will do well but even if you don't you will be taught how to do it! Good Luck!
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

History is brilliant, I continued it into Higher this year (my 5th year) and it is a fantastic course. I'm also doing Modern Studies and would disagree with the early comments regarding Modern Studies and History being quite similar. Modern studies is five 10mark essays and, History is two 25 marks essays. Thus, the detail required is much more thorough in History. Overall I'd say Higher History would be the harder of the two. I can't forsee you having any problems crashing it though, but, it will require hard work - it's a huge course - much larger than Modern Studies!
