Sorry if this is in the wrong place, just joine because i'm just about to finish my access course and the teachers on it are very vague about when we hear about passing.
So i was just wondering if there's a srtict date of getting our results?
We have to hand in our folders on Tuesday, i know this probably differs around the country. But is there a long wait to hear? x

i will know officially after the 8th July when the moderators have checked the selected folders they check But i'm on provisional results at minute

exam papers change all the time so you probably wont get any papers that are the same for you as each college delivers different modules and usually the exam questions are sent to moderators before approval and then you don't see them till the exam day

Just wondering, i am going to do the Business and IT course, but would i be able to add a Politics unit on top of that, or would i have to take the whole Humanities Unit?

Politics isn't in the Business and IT pathway on the Access course so if wanted to do Politics you would need to take up the Humanities pathways -- i would discuss your options with your college when you go for interview, i did Media with my Business and IT pathway as i started on the Humanities pathway which included the Media modules id started but changed what i wanted to do at University within the first 3 weeks so i switched pathways...

Thats essentially what i would like to do, the entire Business and IT pathway, with just the Politics module as an add-on, mainly because i wish to do a Financial Economics undergraduate degree, but a Politics and Economics Masters.

I've just finished the Business & IT access course, and have some good offers from many top universities; my firm choice is BSc Economics @ Loughborough Uni.

A friend on the course has firmed financial economics, and another is doing economics & politics at sussex. So you will be fine without doing a politics module.

Almost managed to get rid of my portfolio today but unsuccessful, gotta give it in on Thursday. Got given back 3 histories which passed, 3 English all but one passed and improving own performance all passed. Gotta write a bibliography for research project and complete my project diary then gotta do a little bit on my last English for my pedantic tutor/English teacher. Find out about study skills on Thurs.

This is just great!

Just found out I have to hand in all 3 pieces of work for one subject for moderation. Fair enough that but I have no work on one of the assignments due to my laptop going down over the weekend which the tutor knew. So now I have to sit and wait for an email, which will tell me to go in and talk about it, before I can get anymore work done. As if I don't have enough to do I don't want to have another thing thrown on top of me at such short notice...

that is irrevelant really as you have to pass the coursework and the exam to achieve the credits and the module ... fail one or other or both and you dont get the credits

actually no it is not irrelevant, my chosen uni requests at least 40% done at exams, and i'm finding it difficult to find out whether 40% of grade via exams is viable.

Everything's done and I'm predicted a pass. Got rid of my work and study skills yesterday and then got drunk with class mates and teachers. I now access the Access hangover.
