    I am doing five highers this year. English, Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Music.

    I'm crash-highering Chemistry. I can't believe they let me do that. I'm really enjoying it. Best decision ever.

    Maths is a hugggggge jump. The rest are fine. But it's not really the difficulty for me, it's the quantity. I'm getting quite pissed off having to write essays at 1am :indiff:.

    im doing 6, lol, and failing :unsure:

    soooo much harder than SG/Int 2

    although the only one im actually liking/good at is biology

    maths/physics/chemistry/english escapes me

    Woow six! That's brave! :rolleyes: English is horrible, i agree, but at the end you'll realize that all that interp practise and critical essays were worth it in the end...sort of :p:

    Lol...biology was my worst! Hated the essays that came with it!

    I agree History is so different this year

    hmm yeah, managed to get an A in the end despite during relatively little work throughout the year! was really lucky actually, but don't follow by my bad example! Do LOADS of practise essays because they're the hardest part IMO :yes:

    I did the weaknesses of the Weimar Republic and the economic crises/how Hitler and the Nazis manipulated this in order to gain power... yeah it was at the time, easy, but that was actually what i got my lowest mark in! Don't be like me, and leave your essay until the week before to do! Do it, maybe 3, 4 weeks in advance and make your teacher check it and recheck it! :p:

    my history teacher / also a higher marker told us rise of hitler is one of the hard ones to do an extended essay plus the marker are usually strict since we covered the topic in SG . I am thinking of doing appeasment / road to war or Bismark

    Yeah Bismark's a good one, quite a few people did that in my class. We never got to do appeasement though for our dissertation as it was considered too complicated according to my history teacher! He was an idiot though :p:

    The jump from Standard Grade to Higher wasn't bad, standards got higher but it's not a giant step. I've found going from Higher to Advanced Higher far smaller a change than SG to Higher, though.

    Yea, don't be put off with the scare stories about doing 5 highers, and how the jump is impossible. There is a jump, but if you work consistently throughout the year, and I don't mean consistently hard, just consistenly, you'll do well.
    Yeah, the consistently is important - it means you can learn the courses a lot more easily when it comes to the exams.

    hello. i'm very new to this site. I'm a junior and we just got the information on starting to think about our extended essays. I'm very interested in history, and really into the queens and kings of Europe (especially France, England (Tudor familiy) and Russia (Romanovs family) at the moment.. which is very interesting 'cuz we're starting a chapter on Nicolas II's reign in Russia in my history class)... awesome. Does anyone have an idea of a topic for an extended essay?

    So. Much. Harder.

    The Modern Studies essays are marked much more harshly, Physics is actually impossible and Maths is difficult (at least compared to Int. 2 which I found really easy).

    Luckily English isn't too much harder, and Business Management has gotten easier
