Hello, I have just joined !
I am almost 31 years old and married with 2 daughters aged 6 and 18 months.
I have been a hotel manager for 8 years and now I am a Housewife (Domestic Goddess as I like to be known) !
I am really needing some help and advice !
I would love to study, so that when my children are older I can have a good well paid job and also use the grey cells which have been rather dormant since I left school !
I am bright however I lost interest in my GCSE's and therefore have the following qualifications:
GCSE - Eng Lang B
GCSE - Modular Science Dual Award C C
Also have a BTEC 1st Diploma in Business and Finance (seems to count for nothing in Uni Prospectus's)
I have been looking in Access Courses or Level ) degrees at Sunderland Uni.
My subject interests are
Biology, Forensics, Genetics, Chemistry
English Lang, Psychology, Sociology
Bit of a Mixed bag there, my bad points ate MATHS ! I am crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Was wondering if anyone could give me some advice, like should I do A Levels or Access ? What kind of course would be good for me ?
I would be doing to a levels and access over a few years as I have a family and time is........well I am guessing some of you will know !
Really just want to see whether it is worth pursuing at my OLD AGE !!!!!! LOL
Thanks in advance !
Phone up the uni's that ya interested in and ask them what you would need 2 get in. They more leanient with mature students.
The access coures part time over 2 years would suit you better.........but then thats 5 years of studyin......... if u wanna do it go for it.
Thanks for the help!
Can anyone tell me.................
I have 3 x GCSE's (BCC)
and a BTEC 1st Diploma, which is a level 2 qualification.
Does this mean I have any points ?
The courses all seem to ask for points, was wondering if I have any with these at all?
Also to brush up on maths my college has a level 2 maths certificate (not gcse) which I can start anytime just to try and get a feel for studying again, do you think this will be useful (can't do a levels or anything til next sept) !
