yeah, but thats still not as much as 4 advanced highers
You possibly couldn't tell until you'd done both. I done 3AH's last year and didn't find them that challenging (Maths, Chemistry & Biology) - the investigations required a lot of work though and were quite time-consuming. I'm doing medicine now and 3AH's (and I would assume 4AH's) are definitely not comparable to it in terms of workload.

ok ok, but i still think 4 advanced highers is a lot, especially if u dont need them. 3 investigations were 2 much for me, as well as trying to study for prelims, tests and nabs.

Have to say, 3 AH + 1 H is enough for any sane person - I've done that this year, along with one other in my school. We picked the second-highest workload in the school.

But, if you kiss your sanity goodbye, there are no limits. A friend - with the highest workload in the school - had the following on his plate this year:

AH English
AH Maths
AH Chemistry
AH Biology
H Music (Would've been AH, but they wouldn't let him crash it)
Percussion in the school orchestra
Guitar in a rock band
Working significant hours...

And, remarkably, the guy speaks sense. He's taking a year out, apparently to catch up on sleep...

wow...that is quite a workload

i think i'm gonna do:
AH Chemistry
AH Maths
AH Gaelic
H Geography and possibly
H Human Biology, but i'd have to teach myself that actually, forget that, 4 is more than enough[/s]

I only did two advanced highers - maths and physics - and looking back at it i think i could have done at least three because i dont think that they challenged me much and i got 93% in the maths prelim and an A in the physics no problem. i think i should have done more..... ah well. 4 is a bit much - not because it would be too hard but because its just plain pointless
