Moved to the Scottish Qualifications forum.

Don't really know enough to give advice on this, but I hope your daughter smashes it.

three highers and one advanced higher in s6 is definitely achievable, i have plenty of friends who do that, and biology is mainly memorising and interpreting data, it's great!

3 crash highers will be tough. I guess there are a lot of transferable skills from History that can be applied in Sociology and Modern Studies, but Human Biology is gonna be very demanding without any background in biology. Maybe read up on some N5 Biology before doing it?

But don't let the challenge put her off I'm doing 2 crash highers this year and they are pretty tough, but hard work will pay off.

As others have said, doing so many crash highers might be quite challenging (definitely possible, but it will probably not be a 6th year where she can just coast along). Whether it's achievable or not depends (in my opinion) on her work ethic, and what else she's got on. If she's not sure what she'd like to do, she may be better off doing 3 of those subjects and spending time volunteering/doing work experience. In terms of keeping options open subject wise, her S5 subjects are varied, and she will be able to get into most uni courses with those subjects (at the right grades), so I would suggest not to be overly worried on that front.

Hope this helps
