Hi everyone, this is a thread for anyone doing Higher Admin this year. You can ask questions, give advice or anything Higher Admin related.

So who’s doing it this year?

Hi,

Just wanted to say that if anyone encounters any problems with Higher Admin, let me know! When I was in S5, I achieved an A, and I would be happy to help anyone!

Good Luck!

Hello, I am currently in S4 and I take Nat 5 Computing Science which I plan to take further. The trouble is I am dropping four subjects which leaves me having to either take Nat 5s and crashing Higher. I would really like to Crash because then I would feel like theirs no point in even taking them.
I guess my question is. How easy is it to crash Admin & IT? Would you reccomend it? and what is the course like? What kind of things do you learn?

Computing science is a very different course to admininstration and IT, so I would make sure that you're going to enjoy the course first. Higher admin is regarded as a 'crashable' subjects, however I'd check with the admin teachers in your school before taking it Good luck!

Hi, I’m currently crashing Higher Admin (having never done Nat 5 before) and so far I found it quite easy. In Higher Admin, we learn about theory such as the role of an admin assistant, effective teams, meetings etc as well as the practical side of the course which involves going on a computer and doing e-diaries, word documents, PowerPoints, spreadsheets etc. The theory to me is just common sense majority of the time and the practical should be fine once you know what you’re doing. I have never done Nat 5 Computing Science before but I would recommend doing Admin at Higher if you believe in yourself and practice the practical and theory bits until you get it. Definitely ask the teacher for help if you don’t understand it at any point!

Hope this helps
