    Hi, i recived my as level Results this year and got:
    A - Product Design
    C - Physics
    C- Geography

    However im really interested in electronic engineering due to influences from my father. I realise i dont have certain subjects (maths) to study EEE at uni.

    Therefore im here to ask for advice, as im really interetesed in pursuing a carrer in engineering that is it worth doing a foundation year? I really have my heart set on somewhere like Sheffield or Loughboro.

    My main concerns are how do i apply for these on ucas, just like normal courses or do it direct through the universities? I see options on UCAS for foundation courses like this:


    What i'm worried about is that my personal statement is based around Electrical engineering which i want to do but i'm taking the foundation year first to get the necessary requirements. I would be grateful if someone could someone offer me advice how the system works, when i applying foundation courses now, can you do it just like normal courses?

Is the Big Bang theory correct?
