Hi, I'm currently studying at A2 and I know it's late but I'm thinking about applying for uni. The subjects I took for AS were Business, Sociology and Law. I ended up failing Law and having to take an additional AS subject which was Media. So now I've ended up with the inevitable outcome of finishing A levels with just 2 full A Levels and an AS in media. I'm expected to get a C in Business, a D in sociology and a B for media AS. Not great.
After looking at uni's with the intention of studying Marketing, nearly all want at least 300 UCAS points and there's clearly no way I'll get anywhere near that mark. So it looked as though foundation degrees and an eventual top up to honours was the only realistic option.
Now I'm a bit skeptical about foundation degrees mainly because of the fact that I've read that most are studied at nearby colleges, meaning I'll probably have to find my own accommodation as well. All I really want is to get onto a foundation degree with the normal uni experience. (Studying at uni, living in halls, e.t.c) So basically, to sum up I've got a few questions;
Are there any Uni's taking on foundation degree students to study at university rather than at a nearby college?
Could I actually get any offers for a typical honurs degree course with the prediction of 190 UCAS points?
(I know the above is a but vague but was just wondering if it's common for uni's to even look at students with only 2 A levels)
If anyone has any idea about foundation degres and uni courses for low UCAS points, would be very much appreciated!
Is freshers still worth it?
