    Advanced Highers get like no support whatsoever - apart from Maths.

    I've been trying to find AH French past papers and have had no luck so far.

    I'm lucky since I'm the last year before a new syllabus is brought in :cool:

    Means I have to do less textbook learning

    I'm the same. The Scottish government are doing an overhaul of the current education system and pushing the new curriculum for excellence stuff. I was the last year to do Standard Grades, my friends in the year below had no past papers for their National 5 exams at all.

    lol, textbooks. I only have Maths textbooks. The rest of my subjects give me flimsy handouts without enough info - doesn't help when you don't get taught by the teacher either.

    I don't know if I misheard my friend but honestly, that sounds ridiculous...

    Could be worse though, I've got 15 exams and 6 of them are on my first two days then my last exam is 6 days after my second last :lol:
    Nothing quite like the way the exam timetable works haha. Good luck

    First exam in 3 days and 2 months :woo:

    I like my timetable though, it gets the unimportant subjects out of the way early so

    Likewise, good luck with your exams too

    My one regret is doing what I thought I should do rather than what I wanted to. Looking back, I should have done history

    - from Cam Law Grad, to prospective me, who loves History but will probably pick Law because it's more sensible.

    Hearing this from him, to me, was just earth shattering.

    Yeah I kinda agree, you need to do what you want in life. Like at the start of y12 I was very average at physics and good at maths; all of my a*s at gcse were in English lit/lang, french, Spanish, essay subj basically and I thought to myself "hm could do essay a levels and have easy ride.... nah science is cool I wanna do that" and even tho it is SUPER hard because its not my natural talent I never regret it
    How come you went along the "what-i-should-do" route?

    I'm not seeing the profoundness myself, but it seems like solid advice.

    If you want to do History, do History.

    If you want to become a lawyer do History; bag a Training Contract that'll pay for your GDL and LPC.
