My school makes you do three advanced highers in S6 which I think may be too much work! 😖😫how do you manage the workload? Are advanced highers a good idea/how many advanced highers are the right amount? I want to do biology for sure maybe history?? Thanks for any replies

I do 2 advanced highers.. economics + business. I don't find the workload to be overly stressful tbh - just make sure to be good at time management and you'll be totally fine : ) I can't speak from personal experience but I've got a few friends who do history and say its just a lot to remember but its quite interesting. Best of Luck x

I am doing 2AH (maths, physics), 1 crash Higher and picked up another higher from my NAT5s.

My school allows us to drop one column if we do an AH, but we still need to do 4 subjects. If they had allowed 3AH only I would have jumped at it but I was worried 3AH and another higher would be too much.

AH are getting into even more depth and complexity, but if you grasp it ok they are not that much extra workload, although having the reduced course by not having the projects to do this year might make them feel like less work. They should also now be subjects you are good at and enjoy which I think always makes things easier.

Hey! Last year I did 2 Advanced Highers (English and History) and 2 Highers (Politics and RMPS)

The course content for history is quite intense (I did Britain in WW2) but it’s really interesting and I would definitely recommend it - I also found it a lot easier than higher so that’s a bonus!!

I would say overall, the workload is manageable if you get it all done and use your free periods to your advantage (though I did go to Tesco + Costa a lot🤦🏼*♀️)
And if you study for your prelims it will make the actual exam revision soooo much easier!!

Wow thank you for the kind response! It helps me form a good picture of what’s it like to make my decision
