I thought highers was difficult but advanced highers is ridiculous. It’s not like the coursework is just difficult like highers, it’s difficult, overwhelming and TEDIOUS!!! It takes me 4 hours just to “understand” a page of the chemistry course specification (I watch a lot of YouTube vids and take notes) and then when I do past papers it feels like I just wasted 4 hours of my life “understanding” because I cannot answer a single question. Then for maths there’s just so so much steps to memorise and making a single mistake can butcher your answer so bad, and I make several! There’s a 1 in 10 chance my answer matches the one in the book! Please, anyone who knows how to study advanced higher chemistry or maths (plus mechanics/physics) how do you do it? I was considering making flash cards but I feel like that’s not productive/ I don’t know how to. I went into advanced highers being too optimistic, considering doing engineering if medicine didn’t work out. Well that dream has died. mechanics has humbled me. Honestly, this gives me flashbacks to nat 5 history, I just don’t know what to do and no matter how hard I try, nothing seems to be working!! :/ it’s so demotivating, I’m apprehensive to open my book to revise now because i feel like it’s just a waste of my time at this point.
