I have not sat Higher chemistry in Secondary school but have studied it at home with resources I bought on my own. I was wondering if there is I way I can move on to Advanced Higher chemistry in college even though I don't have a Higher qualification.
If this isn't possible, how can I sit Higher without getting it from Secondary school?

Of the (very few) AH courses I've seen colleges offering, they usually require that you have the subject at higher.

Some colleges offer higher courses (there's more choice with these than AHs), so just have a look at their websites to see what they're offering (courses for this year have already started though, so you'd need to apply to start next year).

There's also other courses that colleges offer that are at the level of highers or you can do a HNC which is at the same SCQF level as advanced highers, so it's really a case of doing a lot of research to find out what all of the options are.
