I have a dilemma and do not know what to do. I am currently studding 5 highers and hope to go to university. To be offered a place at the lower level universities that i am considering applying for, I need to get AABB at higher- including maths and physics.
I received my prelim results back and I did very bad, 25% in Maths and 45% in Chemistry (I was surprised at this as I did not study at all for chemistry and thought that I was good at maths). In my other 3 subjects I am on track to do well. When I received these results I panicked as I was not sure if I would manage to get a good enough grade in higher maths as I am right now.
I have 2 best options, either carry on doing 5 highers and have to try very hard and hope that it is enough to boost my Maths grade my miles, or I could drop Chemistry and focus on trying to get a good score on only 4 highers (I would drop chemistry as it is the subject that I find most challenging).
Doing 5 highers would be much harder and I run the risk of not being able to increase my maths grade, but 5 highers would look much better for universities and if I done well I could be considered for a higher level of university.
Doing 4 highers would be much easier and I would be more likely to achieve the grades that I need, but when applying for universities i would be more challenged to get in against the many people who did 5 highers.
What should i do?
