    It will be zero, I think. I've been offered this as a changed course after narrowly missing the grades to get to ENV. I'm an A/B grade student, so will the course be relatively easy? I did Chem A level and got a U (worst subject ever!) but I've got a B in biology and A's in GCSE maths, physics, chem. So would the course start at an easy level I'd assume, to get everyone to the same place?

    Sorry about all the questions! I hadn't planned on taking a foundation year and basically missed out by a couple of marks! But on e last one: if anyone has done the course, are there much topics which would be relevant to environmental science, like biodiversity and stuff? Since maths and even most of chemistry and physics doesn't come into that course much.

    Any info would be great, its such a big decision as its basically another year of debt you're adding on. :s

    Really little of the course was related to environmental science. In fact I can't really think of anything.

    Actually, from what i've heard the chemistry in the foundation will help you with some of the env stuff.

    I know plenty of people who were going onto ENV though.

    No-one here can help you with special requirements like that. I suggest you ring UEA ASAP.

    Bio, Chem, Maths, Phys

    One of these is dropped after first semester.

    Really it's just A-Level content again, except with bio where they will probably cover slightly different stuff that your exam board.

    The foundation year is good, just stay on top of your work and you'll be fine, aka not leaving coursework assignments till the last minute and stuff like that.

    The foundation year requirements are quite low, since I got on with BDD.

    Or do you mean the entry requirements to get on to Pharmacy?

    If so it's usually 75% if you have done A-Levels which you seem to have done.

    Just a question - does the science foundation year mean you do a foundation year, then go on to do a degree in general science, or is it a foundation year then you choose a degree in science the university offers to go into?

    Thanks!!

    No idea. I applied for this course in mid-October, the 4 other universities have long since replied and I'm left waiting for East Anglia.

    Has anyone received an offer for this course yet?

    I have applied since December and I have yet to get an offer or anything :/. I am getting a little worried because they are my first choice. I have received offers from the rest of the universities and just waiting for UEA.
