    Well that is Ok if he is willing to pay But as you said, so few unis offer pharmacy that they are all recognized courses, which uni you go to won't matter (I don't go to a Russel group uni )
    I know that, but my dad is a highly stubborn creature and hey, if I get the chance to get away from home and he's willing to pay, I ain't complaining.

    he's willing to pay the ridiculous fees
    Wait, what? If you're just a normal UK student, then you're eligible for a tuition fees loan. On the other hand, if you can afford the tuition fees up-front, it makes things simpler, I suppose.

    Or you might not be a 'normal' UK student :p:

    He doesn't want me to get into debt, bless him. He'd rather pay for them himself. He wants to do the same for my little brother and sister as well though so I have no idea what goes on in that mans head. And I'm anything but normal.

    hi
    i'm going into fifth year soon and can't decide on my choices at all! i originally picked english, maths, history, modern studies and french, but i genuinely can't put myself through another year of french - love the language but it's so dull. i'm considering dropping it for geography instead. would this be a good move in terms of applying for uni and that? or will they not look too kindly on three social subjects? i'm hoping to do law or history and politics. i really have nae clue. sorry for the rambling, sleepy/rough/confused, any help is appreciated!

    I'm also not too sure on what to do for 5th year. I've picked History, English, Human Bio, French and Drama. Is it a bit stupid not to do maths? I hate maths and i'm not too confident about doing the int 2 exam on Wednesday but I know it's not the best choice to leave maths at an int 2. Has anyone else not done maths in 5th year and done well or am I harming my chances of getting into a good uni?

    The now I've picke

    Higher Maths
    Higher English
    Higher PE
    Higher Biology (Business Management)
    Higher Information Systems (French)

    Is French an alright subject to pick at Higher because it was so boring at SG.
    And is it a risk to leave Biology for a year cos I don't think I'd pass with the Biology teacher I would get in 5th year, shes terrible but it would be a better teacher for it in 6th year, shes great so is it a risk to stop it for a year.

    Cheers

    French at Higher is alot more interesting (if that would be the right word lol!). Like machupicchu said, it is a HUGE step, but I definitely think it was worth it ...

    As for Biology, I wouldn't say it's much of a risk taking one year out ... Know a fair amount of people who crashed it with no problems as well, from what I can remember it's fairly well structured so that SG theory is refreshed while they build on it ...

    Hope that helps !!!

    For 5th year I took Higher Maths, Higher English, Higher Admin, Higher Art (but dropped to Int2) and Int2 Biology.

    Next year I'm taking Int2 Personal Development Plan (I don't even know what this is, it was to fill a column), Higher History, Higher Health & Food Tech and Higher French.

    I may have to resit Maths but I am in no way resitting English just simply because I can't be bothered!

    Applied Maths? It's AH, but one of the three units is a subset of the main maths course, so it's only like an additional two-thirds of an AH, if you like.

    I wanted some advice on the subjects which I should take next year to help me get into the Uni courses which I want to attend. The places I want to study are either Glasgow or Edinburgh but I don't think my grades are good enough so my next port of call would be Strathclyde or Stirling. I want to go into an arts course on either History or Psychology but haven't decided on which one yet.

    Just now I'm estimated 3 A's at Higher in Drama, History and Computing as well as a C in maths and an A in Int2 English. I'll obviously take English next year but I wondering if anyone could advise on the best subjects to take to get into by selected Uni's or if it's actually too far gone now and my results - no matter what I do in sixth year - wouldn't change that.
