    i took history for two weeks at national five but hated it so changed to a different subject. im now entering sixth year and planning to study law at uni and history seems like a good subject to help me out with law, plus as the older ive gotten my interest in it has grown. would crash higher history be hard? ive been told there is specific techniques to answering essay questions and the style of writing in history differs to the style in english - therefore taking higher history may muddle me up with my advanced higher English course. does anyone have any reccomendations on how to prepare myself for this crash higher with no prior knowledge and tips so I won't mix the essay writing styles with adv. English? Thanks

    It was a compulsory subject from first-year to third but it didn't include any exam level stuff, if you decided to take it in fourth you were automatically put through to national five

    You should be fine. There is some source question structures you use at N5 for higher, but they're really straight forward and I'm sure your teacher will give you the appropriate notes. For my school we did the wars of independence at N5 for the Scottish unit and also we do that in my school for higher. Your school might be the same, but the teacher should go over it again in depth if that's the case and it shouldn't be too hard. You may as well give it a go, i don't find it very difficult but obviously you have to like history.
