    Higher history really is a different set-up, the "KU" is important only to the extent that it allows you to make points and your argument regarding the essay question or source question. I would say that the analytical skills in "ES" will be more the sort of thing you will need to be good at in order to cope with the Higher course.

    I would say to do maths if you want it to be a subject to help you in uni if you are doing a science course, do History if you need more Highers to get into that course. History is an interesting subject and is thought provoking, you would probably enjoy it and my personal view of the matter regarding essay exams is that the 3 hours of writing at the end of the year (which is not exactly fun) is a fair price to pay for an interesting course.
    Unfortunately I have to chose between them because my school has both the subjects in the same column - otherwise I would have picked both.

    They're lying:p:
    They have both your bands and actual marks. Maybe they just haven't downloaded them from the SQA site...but I don't know why they wouldn't:confused:

    Hehe I got the feeling that they were telling fibs. My sister and a few others asked the teachers directly for their marks/bands and apparently they're all saying that it's "confidential" and then not telling anyone... I have no idea why.

    I asked my art teacher for my band.
    She said teachers are not allowed to tell them to pupils.

    I would have told her about the amount of people on here who have them and the fact my biology teacher just came out with it but I couldn't be bothered arguing, and I really like her tbh so I don't wan to get in her bad books.

    My graphics teacher gave me my exact marks for each subject including each paper for every single subject I took, and even my standard grades lol.

    It even has details like in chemistry a seperate mark for the multiple choice and the main bit.
