It is possible but I am also choosing:

AH physics
H Business Management
+ the 2 maths courses if I chose both

or

AH physics
H Business Management
one of the maths courses
hospitality

should i go with the 1st option?

Out of curiousity, if you're looking to study an Engineering degree, what is the point in studying Business Management and Hospitality? I'd just take AH Maths, Mechanics and Physics. It may seem dull but honestly, it will look better on paper and it'll probably give you a lot more free time.
I think I'm gonna go with:

AH maths
AH mechanics
AH physics
H business management

i want to take Higher business because I am doing int2 this year and I think I can achieve an A or a B at higher level.

I don't know how AH or H works (advanced higher?:dontknow:)

But that combination seems best!

From what I know AH level is the stuff that you learn in your first year at uni.

I dunno how to describe what level higher is at.

Well in terms of subjects it's fine

Are they comparable to A Levels? At all..?

Yeah I think Highers are below A Levels and advanced highers are a wee bit above A levels

Aah, I see! Lets say H is AS level. And AH is first year uni?

If so, then your choices of AH Maths,Mechanics and Physics and H in Business Management is perfect!

Hmm...I suppose Highers could be considered roughly equivalent to AS levels.

I feel ignorant this is the Scottish Equivalent right?

Or

Adv maths
Adv Physics

It isn't going to make the slightest difference as long as you can get into university (or an apprenticeship), which you will with either advanced higher.

It's more important to do what you enjoy. However doing the first option opens up Universities in England (including Oxbridge, Imperial etc. Some of the best in the world for engineering)

AH Physics
AH Maths
And any other subject it wouldn't really matter too much not unless your applying in England then you'll need 3AH.

I've got my offers this year for engineering (albeit aeronautical) with AAAAB. Scottish Unis nearly all look at your Highers first sitting and if you fall below the entry req then you'll probably get a conditional on your AH's.

If you meet an unconditional offer then really AH maths & physics will only make your first year at uni that bit easier (not unless your applying for 2nd year entry then youll need atleast AA).
