I am currently in the process of choosing my subjects for my last year of secondary school and I am torn between taking Higher English (a subject I don't particularly enjoy) and Advanced Higher Geography (one of my favourite and best subjects).
I have checked the entry requirements for getting into the School for Fashion and Textiles university in Galashiels for the Fashion Technology Course and it says that I need ABBB (including English) at Higher
I was wondering whether they would accept Advanced Higher Geography instead as I already have a National 5 in English and both Geography and English are essay-based subjects. And, in fact, Geography teaches you to write a un-biased essay in much more detail, in a much better way as it is a substantial part of the course.
If I did take Advanced Higher Geography I would be wanting to write my essay on the effect of fast fashion on the environment (related to my career interests).
I want honest opinions on whether I should risk it with AH geography or play it safe with English.
My subject choices are due in on Monday (20th March 2023)
