Yes English is a big jump from national 5.

Many of my classmates went from As and Bs at national 5 to Cs and Ds at higher.

Since you got 92% and it's your favourite subject then I don't expect it to be much of a problem for you, make sure you spend a lot of time on your portfolio to perfect it as it really does matter and get various English teachers to read it - I only got 15/30 in my higher English portfolio.

If you're getting 92% at N5, Higher won't be a massive step up. Just make sure you spend enough time on your folio - the marking is very harsh at Higher.

Best of luck, you'll be fantastic
