As in the topic, I am currently studying Art & Design, Computer Science, Spanish and Admin & IT. As Admin & IT seems completely useless for me, I want to change it to something elsd that actually might help me in future, I might take physics but I'm not sure how does it looks like - will I be able to do higher If I didn't take Physics at nat5 level in S4? If no, doing nat5 in s5 will be okay for me? I wanna start college aftet s5. Thanks for any advices and support

Crash higher physics isn't the easiest crash higher...How do you do with maths?

Doing Nat 5 in S5 is not a problem though, and as long as you still meet the entry requirements for the course you want to do at college, 4 highers and a nat 5 vs 5 highers won't make any difference. It's common to have one or more nat 5s in S5, and you're better doing the nat 5 and doing well in it, rather than stressing out and potentially not doing well with the highers. Hope this helps!

Personally I'd do nat 5 physics over crashing higher physics as it is quite difficult.

Thanks for reply, I am pretty good with maths, vectors and scalars is the only one I have problems with but without counting it I think it's not bad. I also wanted to ask if I will be able to understand higher physics if I didn't took natt physics in this year? I'm sure this will be difficult without nat5

Most of the higher physics course builds on what you do at Nat 5, so you would need to cover the nat 5 course over the summer realistically. It can and has been done, but unless you absolutely need it, I wouldn't advise crashing it.
