Im thinking about taking IS as a crash higher next year. I did computing studies at standard grade and got a 1. Now guidance are saying we should be filling out the 1st draft of our choice forms this week and i dunno if i should put IS down. I asked the department what they thought and they said that seeing i got a 1 in standard grade i should be ok at crash if i fully apply myself - what do you guys think? I dont wanna jump into a subject thats too hard - im afraid that my 1 might be i bit misleading (I got a 4 in the SG prelim). I would really appreciate your advise.

If you're into computing then you'll find this course a breeze =)

If you have SG Computing Studies then Higher IS is not a crash higher. If you want more information about the higher why not speak to your computing teacher at school, who can give you the best advice.

I never did at SG and found it easy at higher. smile.gif

Mind you, I'm into computers and whatnot... and did H, AH and now uni computing.

Yes, I did Information Systems as a 6th year higher too. It follows on from Computing Studies and is quite interesting.

IS was simple! Plenty to remember though, so don't take it for granted.

hi, im doing information systems this year and to be honest its quite a difficult subject. if u have no experience of any computing subjects i wouldnt recommend doing it probably. experience in some form of ICT subject is probably necessary but i know others who find the subject very easy so it could just be me.

yeh i took information systems at higher after s-grade computing studies. its a simple course, very KU orientated, but i found the course really boring. my advice would be if you need the grades then take IS, but if you want a decent subject, head elsewhere!
