should i take up Ag science?

Should i take up Ag science as a 8th Hl LC subject my principal offered it to me as a choice if i wanted to do it for 6th year. Is it a good idea to take up Ag as a 8th higher level subject is a H1 doable or not?

It depends on your level of intrest and your ability to learn facts. A precentage of your grade is a project which you need access to a farm to do

only do it if you know you have time for an 8th subject. ive heard ag science is quite difficult but if you work hard enough a H1 is defo doable

I take ag science outside school and when I started I didn't know A thing about farming but still pulled a strong H2 in the mock. A H1 is very achieveable if you put the work in and learn the theory! There's LOADS of choice on the paper and realistically 4 to 5 DEFINITE questions. You're guaranteed an experiment q, gentics, soil, scientific definitions and a q composed of short questions. I'd really advise you to take it especially for points. The project and interview are both very easy and nothing to worry about. Hope that helps! And if you end up doing it the revise wise for ag science is the best revise wise book I've tried! Deffo get it!

H1 achievable but its harder than people think. Doing biology helps also:thumbsup:

if you are doing biology i would do it there is a good overleap in the course. I am from a farm so obvisoly find it eay enough but it is really achieveale to get high grades. if you get the project done in summer of 5th year or even near the end of 5th year it takes os much stress off. the experioment book is 11% just for writing up 25 of them so i would definetly do it

As someone doing Ag.Science - the H1 is only doable if you're willing to put in a lot of work.
