I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Right now I'm taking National 5 Chemistry but I'm considering swapping it for Higher Administration and IT. In your opinion do you think Admin is useful in jobs nowadays? Is it a desirable skill? Or should I just stick with Chemistry even though it's National 5?
P.S I don't plan on having a science based career. P.S.S This is the Scottish system, Highers are equivalent to A-Levels, National 5 is GCSE. Thank you!

I have done Higher Administration and IT last year, awaiting my results now. It helps a lot for University because there is a whole unit of word processing large documents, showing you how to create reports, table of contents and references ect. Much more useful for the world of work. You also learn about Health and Safety as well as Customer Care which will help you understand how to work effectively in an organisation.
