    Hello everyone, i want to apply for economics bsc preferably in Lancaster. I received 4 A's at As ( although not particularly high in UMS ) in maths, physics, chemistry and economics. Which subject should i drop, i found physics the most difficult btw? Also what percentage of the questions are essays rather than maths in economics bsc? I don't feel that confident in my essays, is that a major concern? thanks

    Congrats on your grades , I think essentially it's between chem/physics,and I would drop the one you enjoy the least, as generally speaking, if you enjoy a subject and are mote motivated to revise, you'll do better

    I want to do biology because I've really enjoyed it this year and would love it study it at a higher level, but at the same time I can't bring myself to stop learning French and would love to live abroad for a year which you can do with a French degree. I could obviously combine them but I'm not sure what career prospects that would give me. :ashamed2:

    How about you?
    I just saw your post and I was wondering whether you had thought about the Erasmus scheme. Basically pretty much all unis offer it and it means that regardless of your degree, you can spend a year abroad studying your subject in Europe (including France), added to this, the EU give you a subsidy for accommodation etc. of 3000 euros per month
    This way, you get the Biology degree, but will improve your French skills, most unis will have a section about it on their website

    Yes, it is worth it, but re-sit at least one chem module, and make sure your predicted grade in it is good.

    Where were you looking at applying?
    resitting both chem modules probably, and going to resit my stats (maths module-it was a C, the other 2 modules were As) and im not sure yet, didnt anticipate the C in chemistry so i dont know where i could apply:/

    I think so. Though I may depend on where you were hoping to do. Especially as most Unis don't count Genral studies. So you'd have AABC. Could you drop Chem and retake a module of Maths to boost the grade?
    I dont know where to apply to that would actually accept me to do natural sciences with a C in chemistry, would doing a biology degree be better?

    Well if you get predicted an A in chemistry I wouldn't see why you couldn't apply for some AAB or AAA places.

    Tough question

    I would say ABC purely because of the A, a C can easily change into a B, a B into an A? Not as easy

    Ahaa fair enough, what you're interested in is a good place to start!! Yeah we have about 80 in the year, and I guess about 20 or 30 will probably drop out... Both my parents do public healthy stuff, it sounds interesting and there's loads of different things you can do! What do you want to do at uni then?

    Hi everyone, I'm sort of new as I don't usually spend much attention to TSR. Though since exam period last summer, TSR seemed quite a helpful place, so I've decided to join in a bit and hope I won't be lost out of conversations too fast. :P

    I thought about that for a while too but then dropped biology. Once you have a degree and start at a large organisation you can often move about a bit more anyway, so it doesn't matter what you do to a certain extent and you can do what you enjoy

    I am considering a remark in my History Unit 1C exam as I thought it was quite easy, but only came out with a low C (61 UMS).




    I achieved a C overall (66%) - which means that if I remarked the paper I would have to gain 8 UMS (69 UMS in 1C, which would be a high C) to go up to a B overall. Alternatively, to get my overall grade reduced to a D I can loose 12UMS (49 UMS in 1C, which would be a high E).




    Do you think it is worth a remark? How likely am I to go up by 8 UMS, is that unlikely?

    The only way you can get close to knowing is if you ask for a photocopy of the script and go over it with a teacher who'll tell you if they think it's worth more or less than what you got. If they think it's worth more then go for remark, if not then don't
