I currently take physics, maths, chemistry, english, and art at higher. Next year I will take Advanced Higher physics, maths and English. I need to take one more humanities higher subject for my fourth subject next year but I’m not sure which would be most useful for a degree in astrophysics while also not being ridiculously difficult since I’m already doing three AHs
Edit: I’m not thinking about applications and getting accepted, more what would be helpful to learn about

Unis generally don't care which subjects you take, just make sure you take AH maths at least.

So the ones that would be most helpful for astrophysics would be AH physics and AH maths. The beginning of your astrophysics degree will be very smaller to any other physics degree, and the emphasis will be on strengthening the foundation of your further maths. So I've observed that those people who have done further maths are usually much better acquainted with the material in our maths lectures and thus better prepared than those who did not take further maths.
If you have any other astrophysics questions, let me know!
