Sussex Foundation year or....?

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

    Hi, I've got an offer from Sussex for Biological Sciences and I am not sure to take it or not. My A-level grades are CCC, should I try to go somewhere else, like a uni which might still accept me with these grades without foundation year ( if they even do with these grades) or go for the foundation year? But that going to accept me obviously won't have the best reputation and likely to be low in the raking tables... like Bournemouth? because their website sad that they are pretty flexible with entry requirements

    In my opinion, Sussex seems to be a good uni to go to even if you do have to do a foundation year. I think it might be worth it as opposed to trying another university through clearing or choosing a lower ranked university.You may find some trouble asking clearing with 3 C's but it might be worth looking into the lower end of Russell Group Universities as they do well in biological sciences.Good luck
