    I'm an S5 student who's taking 5 highers and would love to go into medicine. I take Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Health and Food Technology.
    Assuming exams go well, I'd love to take advanced higher Biology and possibly crash higher Art and Higer Geography, though I don't really need them. I'm not sure if that would be too stressful or time consuming. I'd love to hear some opinions, thanks!

    I'd advise against art. The workload is incredibly difficult to keep on top of - especially if the class isn't your top priority. There is a written assessment in addition to producing artwork. It's a very time-consuming class to take on and with your sights set on medicine I don't think the extra stress this class would cause would be worthwhile.

    I was worried about that, because I'd heard a lot about how art is likely to take up a lot of time. I suppose if arts really something I enjoy it can stay as a hobby I really appreciate the reply and I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!
