Well, I did 3 subjects last year, and it was allowed. At the end of the day, they can't force you to do 4.

Depends on your schools policies.

In my school the policy was 4 and no less subjects. But if you did an AH they were more relaxed with the rules, and later in the year the got more relaxed too.

Just pressure you guidance teacher into letting you do just the 3.

In my school its a minimum of 3 regardless of whether its highers or advanced highers. I suppose it depends on how the school operates.

That's the same as my school.

If you are getting forced to do 4 subjects, they're not going to keep on forcing you all year. If they make you do 4, chances are you'll only have to go for the first couple of weeks, just gradually stop appearing or say that you're finding the course too difficult.

We get forced to do 4 subjects unless your doing 2 AH but usually you can drop something in the middle of the year if it's too much work and when it's too late to start something else.

^^thats the exact same as my school.
Although im hoping that if i do 1 advanced, 1 crash and another higher they'll let me do 3. Since doing a crash will be a lot more work than a normal higher.
