    Thank you!! If I go back to school - AH Spanish and French and Higher Business (Crash). However, I may have a job opportunity so I might take up that offer. I have no idea what to do yet!
    Oooh, interesting :yes:
    So do you like languages?

    If it's a standard requirement then they will also make an offer based on interview with you and how much they like you! My advice is to absolutely nail any interviews you may have, but it's also worth having a back up option (you will be able to get one) just in case it doest work out.

    Best of luck, let me know if you need anything!
    I've not yet got an interview as I won't be submitting my UCAS application till October. Thanks for the support

    They both sound good :yes: What's the job?
    Well I'm involved in this summer programme where I do different challenges at different businesses and some of them offer a job to someone so there are quite a few I could put my name forward for!

    I thoroughly enjoyed AH English this year; it's far better than higher and it's a lot more about your own opinions and reading and less about word choice and analysis
    That's good, I'm really looking forward to it

    I honestly have no idea...if SQA say it's a pass, then it's a pass, but I've been looking all over the website and can't find where it says this!

    It says grade D is an award in its own right and as it's on my letter it counts, but college say it simply acknowledges that u done the course but it's a fail if u want to progress

    That's my understanding of the grade D, too. It's an award, but it's not a pass.

    It's a really weird grade. A D is technically a fail, but also a course award in it's own right. It means you have have passed all the units but marginally failed the exam.

    This year I took 3 Advanced highers, biology, chemistry and maths. I'm totally happy with biology and chemistry but before I chose them I was considering the three main sciences at advanced highers (Physics instead of maths) but my guidence teacher discouraged me because of the 3 science investigations and I agreed so took maths instead because I was better at it. Now that I got the same grade for both Higher physics and maths I'm beginning to consider physics again because I enjoy most of it more (hated most of Unit 1, liked unit 2 and absolutely loved unit 3)

    I should really just ask my question before I ramble more so Are 3 AH science investigations as impossible as people say? And should I take it and endure the mechanics part(which I don't like) just to enjoy the more molecular physics part (which I love)?

    It won't matter. You don't need anything above an Int2 pass in English for most universities. Double check on their websites though incase they say you need a B for Int2 or even a Higher pass.

    Check the requirements for the universities you're going to apply for. If you meet the English requirements you don't need to do Higher English, if you don't, you might need to! or retake int 2.

    I would've found it impossible, but it's doable. People have done it on this forum before, but if you don't like a large part of the course, and love only a small part of it, you might want to consider that, too!

    It's not that hard to do 3 investigations, loads of people do so. Just stay organised and make sure you get all your practical work done quickly.

    In the old AH at least, there was hardly any molecular physics (a bit on quarks and the standard model, but that was it really), but there was a huge chunk on mechanics. I'm not sure how this has changed for the new AH though.
