Only just joined TSR but lemme get straight to the point lol :
Audiology isn't something I’ve always wanted to do, but it's now definitely interested me and ISN'T any back up for medicine. I wanted to do medicine, preferred this instead when I read more articles on the career and the issues on hearing problems on the NHS website.
I haven't got any experience at an audiologist yet, but only hospital volunteering with the elderly (who have dementia + other disabilities) and helping children at schools to build my communication skills and see what I'm like around... people :P I've learned how important hearing is.
I haven't really been inspired by a deaf member in my family, but I do have a friend who was deaf from birth, but can still study as she has a hearing aid and a microphone thing that the teacher puts around their neck. This really got me interested. I know this might all be vague information, but does Audiology seem right for me? I've already had a bad year at AS with family problems at home + revision skills.
Predicted grades ABB, Manchester Southampton, Leeds, de Montfort and Swansea.
Is maths and physics needed for this course? I didn't do physics but did AS maths, (dropped it as it was the hardest out of the four in the first year.)
I now have Biology, Chemistry and French. (Languages is a hobby and possibly helpful for future career plans abroad)
Do I have to get Audiology experience before my interviews?
What do I wear to the interview for Audiology?
So far I have a conditional from Southampton
I also have been offered a place at Leeds, but not an interview, instead invited me to an open day - do I still dress formally? [Specific clothing item? as my fashion sense is null]
and lastly: Why do YOU guys wanna do Audiology and what's happened so far? I can't find or meet anyone who's doing the same course as me
Now finally my Rant is over, and thanks in advance to whoever gives me advice and bothers reading this. I'm just in the state where I cannot fail more in life in terms of A levels and getting into uni + a career I want.
Thank You so Much =)
Audiology - major advice needed :( Watch
