Hi people, I left school in June without anything sorted for this year but next year I'm definitely going back to school or college to study A levels. I got 5 C's including English, Maths and Science, an A and a D. I pissed about in school quite a bit, so maybe if I listened more and stopped being a little **** I could of done better. I don't have the grades to study English, Maths or any Science's so I've been left to pick subjects which require a C or above, as English, Maths and Science you need B's for.
1) What are the difference between A levels and AS levels? As far as I'm aware you pick 4 A levels to study in the first year, then traditionally you drop one A level and continue studying the three other A levels, so is the second year the AS levels?
2) How do the grades work? I know GCSE it goes from A* - U but what is the maximum and minimum grades for A and AS levels?
3) What requirements do university's look for? Realisticly I wouldn't get into oxford or any of the top noch uni's but would be happy to study in a 'rubbish' university because I'm not that intelligent. I really do not know what I want to do in uni, but would love to be a crime scene officer. Also I know it sounds stupid but my dream job is to work for the MI5 as an intelligence officer, they take on graduates but would not know what to take in uni for that role.
4) What are the differences in type of degree (post graduate, masters, bachelors, etc)
Sorry for all the questions but honestly I don't have a clue.
Many questions, please help. Watch
