    I just CANNOT do it, no matter what. I'm pretty clever and get good grades, should be looking at all A's except human bio.

    The problem is i dont really want to just take 4 highers. Is there any way I'd be able to take an easier higher and pass it at this stage? Like PE or something?

    What?

    Human Bio is like the easiest subject? What other highers are you taking...

    If you're pretty clever, and predicted 4 A's, I honestly cannot fathom why you can't do Human? It's just memorizing loads of things...

    Cause frankly, depending on what you want to do of course, taking PE higher is probably only just ever so slightly than not taking it.

    I suck at sciences, I just don't find it easy and find it impossible to memorize.

    Oh right so you aren't a science person.

    But still, you have to memorize quotes and poems for english? Words for spanish, and dates for history?

    Honestly, just learn the key words etc... In all honesty I would say, stick with it. Cause it's better than PE. And if you really really try, I mean get help from teachers. Put key words up on your walls. Or a million other styles, you'll be able to learn it.

    What did you take in Standard grade? Cause if you can't do human biology? You might be able to do Int 2 biology? And take up higher biology in 6th year?

    I mean, if you're dead set on dropping it then drop it, perhaps for Int 2 Biology if you're school does it? Or in the end Higher PE?

    But if you think there's a chance you'll be able to do Human Biology then continue it.

    Honestly, draw pictures of the heart? Label things? Build models? Record yourself saying all the key words and then play it back to you? Dot words around the house? Re-write notes? Do past papers? Try and move about whilst reciting them? The list goes on...

    There's loads of different methods. And I know you might not be bothered, or think some of those methods are pretty camp. But trust me they do work!

    See how the prelim goes and go from there. I think if you stick at it, you'll get there in the end. The final exams are a few months away which gives plenty of time to sort out any problems. Just keep practising past papers and if you don't get something ask your teacher. It might be a bit late in the year to pick up another subject.

    Unless your doing Porn studies, then HB is like the easiest subject going. Oh that and golf management.. :rolleyes:

    I suggest you just struggle on with it. You've came this far!

    If you are really struggling, look and see what's bringing you down. Is it a part of the course? The exam style? Anything? If you can identify that, then you can combat it.

    I found that human bio had tons upon tons of memorization and it was kinda difficult to remember it all, but then I realised that all the stuff they were teaching was probably happening in me right now! ()
