    I don't think it's RSC accredited, because you choose modules - I'm not sure how much Chemistry you have to do from the Natural Sciences course to gain accreditation, but probably more than 1.5 years. I don't think the education part holds any important accreditation (in the same way that RSC accreditation allows you to work in the chemical industry).
    Aah, I see! So where do you want to be after Cambridge?

    You don't need individual module grades for UCAS. However, you should get the UMS scores and grades for each module you took.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if we get our individual results for AS like for each module? Last year for my GCSE results I only got my overall grades but don't we need our actual individual unit grades for AS to complete out the UCAS form?

    Thanks,
    you do have to put individual unit grades down as well as overall grades. if you're resitting a module next summer then you put 'pending' otherwise you have to tell them what you got for each exam. Thats what my school made us do anyways :/

    I don't really know yet, I just think the course is interesting. I might do a PGCE, do a masters/PhD, see whhat jobs are available in the education sector.

    Your school might have made you do that, but the fields for modules are definitely non-compulsory and are clearly marked as such.

    This is brilliant. You brightened up my day :-)

    ohhh I see, fair enough! I suppose if you don't put them down unis might think you didn't do so well on individual exams/ or you can show off if you did do well lol.

    thanks, good luck to you too as well ah really, I got a B in unit 3 in jan (scraped it, got 70/100) but didn't choose to resit it as it was a clash with my final chemistry exam (which was 2 hours long) so i resat 1+2 instead which went okay.
    do you need an A overall?
    yeah i need an A but i don't think i will get it. I have never had a perfect results day. There is always one or two subjects which ruin it haha.

    Yeah but... Five of them? :lol: I expect they all have no rep power, so I probably balanced it out.

    It's not a teaching course? Out of curiosity why did you choose an education degree if not to teach or coordinate the teaching of a subject?
