I didn't take national 5 physics this year (I'm in s4) and I want to know if I would still be able to do higher next year, I would like to leave secondary school with advanced higher In all three sciences because they are usually helpful subjects in the job I would like to get (a surgeon). TLDR- Can I take higher physics without having taken national 5 physics this year

Hey Mack. Corcoran I think you should double check this with your teachers but if you're doing some sort of science and do well enough there (i.e. have proven you can pass Nat 5 Chemistry/Bio) and if it fits with your timetable then they might let you take it. If you explain to them why exactly you want to do it (and maybe your reasons for not taking it at nat 5, did it not work out with your columns?) then they'll be able to let you know.

I don't think it's totally out of the question but I do think you'll need to convince them that you're capable of picking up the Higher curriculum so you'll need to ask what they need to see from you.

Good luck with it!

Yep you should be able to crash higher it. I've got plenty of friends who did it at higher level and not nat 5.
