Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi everybody I hope your all well. I just wanted to know your opinion who has done an access course within the last 2 years. Especially anyone who has done an Access course in Computing. Are they worth it? And how difficult is it to achieve distinctions on every unit that you get. Is it an impossible amount of work load and how are you assessed.

    I have a confirmed place at college to do a Computing course in September. I am 20 years of age and have been out of education for the last 4 years. To say I am slightly nervous is an understatement. For my GCSE's i passed all my subjects with C's hence my apprehension regarding the access course as I have heard that it is very very tough.

    I am eager to finish my A Level's so that I can get to uni and start being a little bit independent.
    I'm sorry for such a long post. And I hope everybody will have a good weekend.

    Thank you.
