yeah I mean that was a bit problematic but the Romans totally went back on her husband's will and then raped and flogged her and her daughters.
How do highers and advanced highers work btw? Like what year do you take all the exams - is it the penultimate year to leaving school?
We sit three sets of exams throughout the last three years of school. 8 National 5s (equivalent to GCSE) in 4th year (year 11), 5 Higher's (equivalent to AS in difficulty - these grades are what we apply to uni with, also why a lot of Scottish students get unconditional offers as they have already achieved the grades needed to get into X university by that time) in 5th year (year 12), and Advanced Higher's (harder than A-levels because we have to learn the course over just one year which is why many Scottish students only take 2 AHs. Most universities recognise the difficulty of these exams and give us offers based on 2, for example, Bristol gave me an offer based on me achieving 2As in my AHs.) in sixth form (year 13).
