Hello 😊 I'm currently researching uni courses and one of the courses I'm interested in requires AH Chemistry to be achieved in S6. It's a subject area I'm really interested in but the course is competitive and I don't want to disadvantage myself in any way. I've not studied chemistry in the senior phase but at the moment my only option seems to be crashing AH Chemistry. And so I was wondering if anyone on here has been in a similar situation/Has anybody crashed AH Chemistry? Thanks ☺️

Don't even think you can crash an AH, well in my school you can't and you would probably find it really difficult if you did

That doesn't sound like a good idea tbh. At my school to crash even higher chemistry they require you to have done 2 other sciences at higher level

I know someone who crashed AH Chem, they done H chem over the summer. I think they got a B at AH so its definitely possible if you are willing to give up ur summer

Crashing Advanced Higher isn't that great an idea, unless you're 100% up to the work. Advanced Higher subjects are usually just.... "advanced" Higher (how surprising), so it means you have to understand the key areas of Higher chemistry. I don't think you could simply take Advanced Higher by having a rough idea about what Higher was like - you need to know what you're doing, like past paper technique.

My Higher Biology teacher went to study at uni for biology only to find out that she knew literally nothing (because she had done Higher Human which is apparently completely different) so she had to literally go and get a Higher Biology textbook and learn from it, and then apply it to your course.

Perhaps you could do what she did. Although, this definitely isn't anything you can slack off on. You need to put hard work into it.

You really need to ask yourself; am I capable of doing it? Am I going to definitely put the work in? You also need to wonder that whether or not an entire subject qualification is worth taking the risk in failing.

What grade do you need for your AH results in chemistry?

Terrible idea, someone who can grab an A at higher chemistry can sit at a D in advanced, going with what i have seen... I wouldn't even bother. I assume its Medicine, Dentistry, Vet MED, Law your are going for ... in that case you will defos need A or B at advanced higher, nothing less. Sad to say without higher, its out the window.

Are you sure it doesn't say "first sitting" because then you could do it in the year after s6 too if you're okay with taking a year out otherwise, unless you can teach yourself Higher Chemistry in summer?which is doable) then it's going to be very hard.

I personally wouldn't crash an Advanced Higher but honestly if you're really up for it and excel in other subjects (as in predicted band 1s) go for it. Crashing an Advanced Higher is almost unheard of, it's like crashing a Higher in S5 though obviously a lot more difficult. I'm in S5 and I crashed Higher Chemistry which I found not too bad, but there is quite a big gap between Higher and Advanced Higher. My physics teacher has told me that someone in our school crashed Advanced Higher Physics and got an A band 1, so I guess anything is possible provided that you have the work ethic and motivation. Good luck!
