I've just received news that I have an interview with Manchester Uni for a 'Science with integrated foundation degree' course and needless to say I'm very happy.
However, I lack the A-levels usually needed for a foundation course (long story relating to health/home issues which they know about). Obviously it's not a deal breaker otherwise they wouldn't have offered me the interview but I was wondering whether anybody else had a similar experience and how their specific case was dealt with. I don't want to get my hopes up but I don't want to be negative about the experience either.
If you had a similar experience please let me know how you found it, negative or positive. Also, if you're currently taking the course it would be great to know what it's like from a student's perspective.
What's your story?
