    I have to deciede what I am taking for higher in the next month, I am thinking of taking maths, english, business, spanish and I have another subject to pick either chemistry/geography or history. I was wondering what kind of courses I could study at Uni with those subjects and any advice on the workload these subjects bring. I will finalise my choice when I get my nat 5 mark but I'm aiming for A's and B's.

    History be prepared to write extensively and in chemistry the course is quite simple really just calculations

    Id take History based of your other subject choices, English and Spanish pair nicely with a Social Subject

    History is definitely the best of the options you're not sure between. I did Higher History last year and it was interesting. It's not easy, but once you learn how to structure the essays properly, you're set for the whole year. I know so many people who took a Higher science and regretted it, so that may be the case with Chemistry. Also you seem to have a preference for wordy subjects rather than numerical ones. So taking History would pair nicely with a language and English for example.
