What scary stories did you hear?
That universities don't interview access students, they prefer A-Level students. That having part-time work hinders you. How difficult the work was etc. Just those kind of scary things, you know.
As I said, I'm not scared about the work load, more the universities not accepting me!
Everyone kind of worries about the same thing when on an access course, but it never really materialised for anyone on my course. It does get a bit stressful after you send off your application and waiting to hear from the uni though.
I did an Access to Health and Social Care (Science Pathway) last year and I start at UCS in a few weeks studying Radiography :-) My offer was 45 credits at merit or above.
