NC vs SWAP - Did I pick the wrong one?

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

    So basically I've chosen to do NC Multi-Engineering with the aim of progressing to HNC in Electrical Engineering then on to Uni, but now I've learned of SWAP I'm wondering if that was maybe the wrong choice and Access to Engineering would have been a far better option.

    I feel kinda deflated knowing that I could have did the SWAP course instead and probably cutout an entire year as it seems a HNC will only get me access to year one (I was under the impression it was enough for direct entry to year 2, but it appears that's not the case after all). Also looking at a lot of the requirements it seems I also need Higher maths at B which I also don't have.

    So, has anyone went the route I've chose? Would Access to Engineering have gave me a better chance of getting into Uni?
