Im currently in year 11, and will be moving to scotland as soon as my house has sold (so December to February time). As we will have to rent for a certain amount of time, to avoid me moving schools 3 times, the idea is for me to be homeschooled for around 2 months before starting school in February to April and taking nat 5s. Does anyone have any advice on how to get the best results possible?

So, you're intending on sitting your Nat 5 exams without having done the course?

I might actually encourage you to sit your GCSEs and then simply start from Scottish Highers next year.

Unfortunately, with the coursework that's needed in National 5s, starting school in February wouldn't allow you enough time to prepare for them in my opinion (with Easter holidays you'd have 8 weeks of teaching max before the exams).

I'm guessing that you're having to move at this specific time, so would recommend either seeing if there is an exam centre near your new house that offers GCSEs so you could sit them this coming year, or starting your new school, but doing Nat 5s the following academic year.
