3 Advanced Highers + a crash Higher

It would fill up my timetable, but it seems like a lot of work which will be hard and very demanding. In terms of results, I attained As for the three I might be doing at Advanced Higher, and I've not taken Mod Studs since S2.
What I'd like to know is, ideally from anyone who's taken this sort of workload in S6, is it as hard as I think it will be? Is it an "unbearable" burden? I'd like to keep as many options open as possible, but not to the point where it'll be just as hard a year as S5 was in terms of the workload.

As dhesi said, speak to your guidance teacher, but your guidance teacher will probably tell you to drop one. My guidance teacher told me to drop subjects and it got to the stage where I have to pretend that I'm only doing 3 out of my 5 subjects with him, they are generally very keen to see you doing the usual S6 helping out stuff instead of more academic stuff. So by all means listen to what (s)he says, but remember that they are probably biased.

Initially, I planned on taking AH Chemistry, AH Biology, AH English and Higher Politics. I spoke to my guidance teacher about whether or not to drop the advanced higher and she said, despite being capable of doing the 4, I would be giving myself more work which isn't actually essential.
So there's my little experience for you, but at the end of the day it's your choice. I know someone who did 4 Advanced Highers and a crash higher and coped perfectly fine. That would kill me though.

I'd say start it and see how it goes. And if you do need to drop a subject you'll know which you like least.
AH maths looks like a lot of work.

You'll only really get one shot at it, best to regret what you have done and not what you haven't done.

great course that, you can turn up for half the lessons half cut and not bother the rest and still pass
1. Deutschland, Deutschland über alles,
Über alles in der Welt,
Wenn es stets zu Schutz und Trutze
Von der Maas bis an die Memel,
Von der Etsch bis an den Belt -
Deutschland, Deutschland über alles,
Über alles in der Welt.
