    So i just got finished doing my 2 years at college studying a level 3 Media Diploma and passed with an M,M,M but after a lot of thinking i want to go to university and study some sort of Medical Science or Psychology and this is where the problem lies , Btecs are worth pretty much nothing to universities unless you are applying to a course related to the subject you studied. So im just like screwed right ? i really don't want to have to go back and Do A levels but will i have to ? i have been told about a foundation year or something but i have no idea what it is. someone show me the way lol.

    If you want to study a science degree then you have two options, do an Access to HE course or a foundation year. Information about both options can be found here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3401311

    If you want to study medicine then you probably will have to do A levels, or a university-approved Access to Medicine or foundation course. See here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Access_to_Medicine and http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...icine_Programs
