What year do most people sit their highers in Scotland and what is the age group for that year? I’m moving to Scotland and I don’t know which year group I should be going into to sit my highers next year.

Usually in S5 (year 12 in England) which is more commonly known as fifth year. The majority of the students turn 16 during the year they begin S5.

English and Scottish schools group based on age a little differently due to different cut off dates when first starting school as a child. You might find you'll come here and be one of the oldest in your year.

I was 15 when I started S5 (which is the year you do highers) because my birthday is in December and the term starts in August.
