    does "in one sitting" mean anytime during the two years, or on a first examination sitting with no resits?
    as many exams as you want as long as done in year 12 and 13.

    Entrance requirements will have went up for the majority of universities won't they?
    I was expecting it but it went up quite a lot for some courses. A lot of courses now at UCL have similar entrance requirements to those in Oxbridge and the rest of the G5

    Last year they didn't ask for an A Level in German for German, why do they now? And wasn't there supposed to be a new liberal arts programme out in 2011?

    Presumably they are no longer going to teach it ab-initio.

    Yes but i think they only started German ab initio for 2010 entry! Why do it for one year and then stop?

    Because they tried it and it was a disaster?

    I think he's suggesting a reason why the ab-initio course could've been scrapped after a year, rather than saying that was definitely the reason for it.
    But there are pleanty of reasons it might not have worked out - it's not easy to get people who start the language ab initio up to the same level as those who start out at A-level standard, within just 2 years by the time they go abroad. It would also require twice the number of language classes, if not more, if you have two streams of abilities going through (you can hardly put ab initios in the same class as those post-a-level) which either gives the language teachers a much higher workload, or necessitates additional staff being brought in, which isn't the easiest thing to do.
    Added to the fact it makes timetabling even more interesting.

    All the sciences went up to AAA-AAB. And they're now offering 4-year MSci for my course as well as for Neuroscience- either it's gonna be less hardcore that way, because things will be more spread out, or it will be even harder...

    I'm interested in how all the other university's change their entrance requirements, because this is the only 2011 prospectus I have seen so far. My sister will be doing her UCAS next year, so naturally curious about entrance requirements and how they are going to be changing...

    The requirement for a C in a MFL is unlikely to change and the prospectus is for people in Year 12 now I believe.

    you can put on your UCAS form that you're retaking, and then it could be part of a conditional offer.

    Why thank God? You're in year 12 and you need a C, but you got a D. So you need to re-take.

    I must be reading it wrong, it looks from the last few posts to me that the C requirement is for Year 12s. Going off The Blind Monk anyway.
