I’m going into my last year of school and want to be a midwife. I have the opportunity to study 4/5 subjects this year. I want to take Advanced Higher French, Higher Psychology and a YASS course in Helath and Social Care. Does this count as a subject for uni or do I have to do another proper subject?

Universities will view the module positively, however, it wouldn't usually replace the need for another subject, if you've not already got the required number of highers. If you're already on track for meeting the entry requirements between this year and next year, I would take the YASS module though, as it gives you one less exam to worry about (and is better than taking a subject that you're less interested in/less relevant just to fill a space).

Hey I’m in sixth year and I done a YASS module in Health and Social Care as well as Higher Psychology this year. The YASS module can be put in the qualifications section of your ucas application and it can be also used in your personal statement. It won’t count as another Higher but is still a useful thing to have. You can mention it in your personal statement and relate the modules you have chose to the degree that you want to do. For example, I wanted to study psychology so I mainly psychology modules for YASS and mentioned this in my personal statement so you could do the same for the degree that you would want to do. I really enjoyed doing my YASS module and I would highly recommend it. Not only does it give you more knowledge in a related subject area but it also helps you to prepare for going to university as it gives you the chance to work independently. The module helped me to develop new and existing skills as well. Hope this helps
