    Hi,

    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.

    Thanks!

    Yes it's fine, I got on last year with A-Levels in Philosophy, Psychology & Religion. They will just bump up the grades a little than if you had the standard Maths and Physics, probably to BBB.

    I wouldn't worry about it either, most of the people I've spoke to about it on the course didn't have any kind of rigorous questioning, they all pretty much had a place as soon as they walked in the room. Of course don't hold this as gospel but it is pretty likely they already know they want you.

    Thanks very much! I just needed some insight from someone that had experience with the process. Am a little less nervous now
