In the future I want to study Biological Sciences at either Edinburgh or Glasgow University.

I picked up Higher Business Management as an additional Higher in S6 and have really enjoyed the course and found it manageable as long as I keep on top of the course work.

It has developed my organisation and planning skills which are transferable to any future career.
