    When you take minor subjects at Lancaster do you do the full part 1 of the course or do you do a slimmed down version?

    Also do you do all the exams and coursework in a minor subject?

    Thanks

    You basically do the full part 1 of the course far as I'm aware, though with things like the language studies, if you did it at beginner level then that would be slightly different to how you would do it if you were doing it for your degree (which is advanced level, but you can do it at advanced level if you did it at A level).

    I think some are slightly different, and some courses don't let you do a part one in their subject unless its your major, but in general you would sit all the same exams and coursework as someone doing it for their major, and have the same lectures/seminars/tutorials.

    Although when you get your results in July and it gives you the projected degree classification I think it bases it only on your performance in your major.
