    Decided to do AH English, Maths and Computing next year; all being well. I had my heart set on doing English, so I'm glad to hear people say it's a good course! Maths was a filler tbh, and IDEK why I took Computing. The department's not all that great, but I'll finally be free of my current Computing teacher! Three years running of deciphering dodgy notes. -_- Kinda hoping for lots of programming. Lots and lots of programming.

    Looking for advice from anyone who possibly took either 3 AH's and a higher or 4AH's? Is this kind of workload manageable, as i don't want to drop Maths, Physics, Chemistry or History .

    I'm pretty sure it is but I just wanted to check with people, if the entry requirements are put at 4 B's and you get 3 A's and a C is that seen as ok?

    This depends on the university: there is no universal conversion table. However, the answer is very probably, yes. Email and ask.

    Yes, it's perfectly manageable! I took 3 AHs this year - one of which was a crash advanced higher - and crash higher Spanish. I am predicted an A for all them apart from English, but hopefully having improved my dissertation and revised I will have earnt an A in the final. You won't be short of work, for sure, although occasionally you may have to pass on going out. Quite a few of my friends started off like this - a few ended up dropping a subject if they received unconditionals.

    That said, all of my subjects were essay based (and no, writing three dissertations wasn't too painful despite English's best efforts); you may find sciences have a heavier workload. The only of your subjects I took was History - it's not a skive by any means and there is quite a lot to remember but it's really interesting. It's so much better than higher as there's less reliance on essay plans and rote learning.

    4 AHs is tough, but certainly doable - a couple of my friends did this. One ended up dropping a subject and the others found it quite stressful (I think.)

    Good luck with your highers

    This year I did 5 highers: English, French, Spanish (crash), Modern Studies (crash) and History.

    Next year I'm taking AH Spanish, French, and hopefully M.S (but my school doesn't always run it so if not AH English), plus the Languages Baccalaureate which means I get a school-funded trip to Paris. Yippeeeee.

    This seems like a little bit of an insane statistic to me, but I think if you want to do it, just go for it! If it's a subject you need/think you'll like, there's not much to lose, and the course might have been very new in 2007. Teachers and the SQA will have had a few years to develop the course out, so hopefully it should be manageable. No one wants stats like that.

    That said, I know nothing about Business Management, so I could be talking rubbish. xD
