    I haven't got to the end of it yet. I stopped because of exams and haven't got back into it! It's really cool though - a lot to do with criminal profiling, and eyewitness testimonies etc. It's kind-of like a 'use-the-info-to-solve-the-crime' course, but it goes into the negatives of profiling as well as the positives - so it doesn't just sugar-coat the field (which is good for people who want to go into forensic psych, but whose only experience is crime TV shows etc.)

    I agree with the keeping busy comment - I actually love learning! Those courses/modules sound great - you'll definitely get a lot out of them!
    And yep, I'm waiting for A2 results - counting down the days!!

    Good luck for 13 August! Remember the painful wait from last year and the absolute fear when ucas went live to see if I had met the offers. Kinda nice to offer support rather than go through it all

    What subjects did you take? I did psychology sociology RS and English lit/lang.

    What grades do you need (sorry cant remember where you are heading to).

    Thank you - I've tried to put it out of my mind, but it's so hard!!

    I took RS, Psychology, English Lit (my school don't offer Lang) and AS Biology (but we don't talk about that!!! ).

    I've firmed Marjon, and need ABB (or BBB for BCU, which is my insurance). My Psychology results are what I'm mainly dreading, but all I can do is wait and hope!!

    Yes its hard not to dwell on results isn't it? Although if all goes well when you check UCAS at 7,30 (or get your results - whichever comes first) then its all more than worth it - its an amazing feeling!

    Almost same subjects as me! Except the English (I did combined) and I did sociology A2 as well! Wasn't brave enough for biology lol.

    Same grades I had to get too! ABB for MMU and BBB for uni of Manchester (my insurance).

    Sure you will do fine but please let us know - I hate it when people just disappear and you constantly wonder "what happened to ......."

    Hello,

    I'm new here. I was just wondering if anyone who has visited Marjon could let me know what it's like there and what the department is like? How does it compare to other places that you've visited? Thanks

    Also good luck for tomorrow/later today JFNX!

    Hi Melswood,

    What's it like at Marjon? is the campus nice? I'm thinking of making a late application for SLT and have emailed the course organizer about a place (I'm currently a Psychology student at Edinburgh Uni) but have no idea what it's like so any details would be appreciated

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone could explain what the Occupational Health screenings involve? I have severe OCD and had 3 months of in-patient therapy from 2013 until January last year- do you think I wouldn't be passed as fit to practice?

    They basically ask for your medical history, so you'll need to put that down. I'm not sure tbh, I guess it depends on the details - perhaps worth contacting universities about it now? Fingers crossed for you

    Hi

    Presume first year's results were a success? Can you believe we are heading for 2nd year? Where does the time go?

    Hope you are having a great summer

    Hi Katy, if it's Marjon's screening you're asking about, it's an online questionnaire that generally asks you about your medical history. It's all pretty straightforward as long as you've got all your records.

    I suffer from a condition that affects my spine and after filling in the form I ended up having an over-the-phone conversation with a nurse to find out more information - so that might be the case with you too? Don't quote me on it though!

    I agree with Butterfly, though. Your best bet is probably to email the uni directly
