    Or whether to do them at all.

    This year I'm doing (all higher) Maths, English, Chemistry, Physics and Geography. I'm predicted 5 As. Providing I study and perform in exams I should be able to get this.

    My school's careers advisers are awful. I made an appointment and they never even showed up.

    The main problem is I don't know what I want to do with my life. I considering Law but also more science based courses which makes things difficult.

    I don't know which or if any AHs to do. I could pick up some more highers.

    Any advice?

    difficult to advise you on subjects when you aren't sure what you wish to apply for at university. if you wish to apply to english universities it would be important you do 3 AHs.

    perhaps try and keep your options open by doing science and subjects which would look good on a law application. AH English, Higher History/Modern Studies and your favourite science at AH? and AH Maths if you don't mind a heavy workload.

    For Law, I'd go with AH English but you can still take a AH Science too. You're better picking the ones you enjoy the most.

    Some unis enable you to study three different subjects in the first year so if you don't enjoy what you originally applied for you can sometimes change your degree.

    Hey, I changed my mind like a million times my teacher was sick of me lol, but if you can I reccomend Crashing AH moddies, really really good for Law, not harder at all than higher -or so I'm told- it's all about the legal system and prisons and such so again very useful, but I know not all schools offer it. But crash highers are just as good as AH to alot of Scottish unis

    I know. I just meant if they choose to do a science course they probably could.

    That isn't true, I was looking at a uni in England and it said it would accept people from 5th year but only if they got 5As. Though most (or at least the more presigious ones) ask for some Advanced Highers.

    Oh, and nice choices (UCAS).
    i don't think theres too many that accept highers alone. the majority i have seen want at least 2 good AHs with good highers. some definetely want 3AHs so it is definetely clever to go with 3AHs if your interested in english unis.

    cheers. are you in 6th year? if so what are you applying for and where?

    I'm not interested in English unis. I'm applying for Geography at Glasgow, St Andrews and Edinburgh. :yep:
    If I were you I'd do more highers, then maybe advanced higher geo. If you've already got the grades.
    edit: sorry, thought you were the op!
