we can do 5 in 5th year, 4 recommended in 6th year unless it's 3 ad highers then u can just do that. however, if u ask u can do up to 5 subjects if you want in 6th year. unless you're doing 3 ad highers you're not allowed to do any less than 4 subjects though, which can include 1 at college.

yeh dave dont they let u crash Higher graphics? coz int 2 is sooo easy i mean its just like the stanard grade course with bits and bobs changed. We shared our class wit the int 2s and it looks fairly stanard grade.

yeah well i could have except i couldn even do in2 and dropped it to give space for AH physics at another school.

In that class there was originally 6 AH,lots of H and 5 in2. By the end of the year all the in2's had left and a few highers had left as well laugh.gif

If i am not here i am somewhere else

We have to do 5 subjects in 5th year, and a minimum of 3 in 6th. Maximum of three advanced highers....don't know why though.

This year I did

Higher English
Higher Maths
Higher Physics
Higher Chemistry
Higher French

And I got an A for all of them in my prelims (just).

Next year I want to do

Advanced Higher English
Higher Media Studies (crash)
Higher Admin
Int 2 Spanish

We have to do 4 subjects in 6th year at our school. Wish I only had to do three, then I'd drop Admin. =/

Ooh, I've changed my mind. I want to do Advanced French rather than Higher Admin. I just don't know if I can. =/

You should be ok as long as it's being taught already. If not it could be difficult and maybe impossible to alter to fit the timetable. It may also depend on how much is taught, and how much is self study. Another school is an option also.

Really, what are you struggling with? I am crashing as well and so far have found it fairly acceptable - just as hard/easy as any other higher depending on your view point. We had done cell structure, osmosis and active trasnsport up until I left for our yearly music course. Now if I hear any mention of bandcamp so help me tongue.gif

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!

English, Maths, Geography, Computing and Physics
Taking physics instead of mod studs was probably a big mistake. Found it really hard at the beginning of the year and my teacher was predicting me a B. Revision paid off thankfully smile.gif (plus the later units were more suited to me)

We've also done cell structure, osmosis, active transport and ADP or ATP or ADP + Pi or something! I HATE IT!!! I honestly don't have the tinciest idea of what I'm doing!

As of Monday I'm doing...

H Psychology
H French
Adv H Chemistry
H Human Biology or Adv H Biology.

I got an A for H Biology last year so doing Huan biology this year seems like a bit of a waste of time because it means just the same thing! Meeting on Monday maybe with the Assistant Head, he is going to kill me for changing as he has to find another school, oops.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.
