Hi, so i handed in my choice sheet a few months back but I still have the option to change them. Currently my choices are higher history, advanced higher english, higher psychology and advanced higher maths.

However I think that I really want to take advanced higher physics but the only option I have is to swap it for advanced higher english. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do yet but I'm looking at the politics/philosophy. Any courses I have looked at don't require either subject so I am unsure on what to do.

Does anyone have any tips or is currently studying any of these subjects? Any advice would be helpful.
Thank u

I think if you would rather do physics, do physics. Advanced higher is a lot of work so you may as well study something you really want to do, universities don't really care about AH subjects too much so I say do physics if you think you would enjoy it more and get a better grade.

Honestly choose whatever subject you like the best. However if your school offers philosophy or politics or modern studies and you haven’t taken them yet in s5 I would try take take them in s6 so you get a feel of what you might do at uni. I’d take the advanced Highers you think you will enjoy the most because if you dislike the subject it’s going to be a horrible experience because they are normally quite a step up from higher. I applied for history/ politics this year so if you have any questions about the application for politics I can try answer them as well lol.

Really sorry I'm just seeing this now.

I'm currently doing higher Psychology too and this is what I find useful.

- I rewrite class notes- I type them up and condense them
-Then to start learning the content I will create mindmaps, voice recordings, and even try to teach others or say idea out loud.

I know that might sound a bit strange but presnting in any form can really help with remembering it.

In terms of structuring your answers for Psycology I find this quite difficult and honestly its soemthing that everyone gets taught a little differently. So if u have the opportunity and you feel that it would be usueful I would ask your teacher if they can go over it again maybe?

I hope this helps and good luck!
