Hello!

Couldn't find a thread similar to this, (move me over if there is one already moderators ). Is anyone applying to Glasgow University for 2015 whom are studying a HNC/D?

Where I'm at:

I left school last month after an accident which caused me to have panic disorder and all the things that go along with it. I have my five highers and eight standard grades.

I've applied to city of glasgow college for a January start, fast track HNC in business (haven't heard back yet).

Just wondering if anyone else is in a similar position? Or if there are students at the uni who previously applied with HN qualifications?

Sorry to drone on. Just having a rough time at the moment and could do with some positives!

Hello! I applied last year with a HNC in applied science, obviously a bit different from your discipline but I'd be happy to answer any general questions

Hey! Thanks for replying
What qualifications did you already have? Were you made a conditional offer then? Is there anything else that needs doing? Exciting stuff! What are you studying?

Hi! I already had AAABBCC at Higher, I was made a conditional offer to get an A in my graded unit, as well as obtain 12 credits at HNC (which you need to do anyway to get the award). I know this year that applicants to life sciences with a HNC/D now need to go to summer school to fulfil their offer, but luckily I got away without being asked to do that. Not sure if that applies to all HNC/D applicants or just my college, but I know a few people who did go to summer school and seemed to enjoy it I study biochemistry.

Yeah I guess I'll be expecting the same conditions. How difficult was the HNC in comparison to school quals? And last but not least, how is the uni?! Thanks so much

Glasgow Uni want -

An HND Business (or business related HNDs) with two As in the Graded Unit and successful completion of the summer school.

No advanced entry to any social science subject is given to any HNC or HND students at Glasgow.

Straight from admissions guys mouth last week.

Hope this helps

I'm studying HNC business this year and have a conditional to study English lit next year. A in the graded unit and attending summer school. Constantly anxious about the A though, anyone know how hard it is? I'm working hard.

You only need 70% to get an A.

As long as you study the 4 units and relate all your answers to the case study you will be fine don't worry.
