Hi thanks for your concern, I have two questions which I need advice on if you'd take the time to help me;
Long story short... when I was applying to UCAS I thought I wanted to do Astrophysics, I've come to realise that while I do like the science of space I'm far more passionate and interested in particle and nuclear physics :s and quantum physics.
I now have 4 offers for astrophysics courses from across the UK. There course I'm most interested in was Kent's "Astronomy, Space Science and Astrophysics with a year in the USA". Its a 4 year course which results in Msci degree.
My first question is would it be possible to take extra particle physics modules on a course that specific? Or could I switch too a particle physics course without losing the opportunity to study in the USA for a year which for me is important as it replaced the need for a gap year. (Which I was gonna do until I heard about tuition fees issue).
Second question is would a degree from Kent be good enough to get me onto a PH.D. course anywhere? or do they only take the best university's? Because I do want to do one.
Bonus, I have an offer from Birmingham which I don't think I'm gonna achieve the entry grades for by quite a small margin, is it worth asking them to lower my offer? Or is the typical response to that a great resounding No.
Taking further maths AS (which i've heard is good for physics courses)
Looking to get A* in maths level (very possible)
Did an extended project in science and got a B.
Thanks for your time!!
What do you think?
