Hi! Just wondering if an A level student joining a Scottish University degree course is at any great disadvantage, socially or academically, in particular for Act Sci @ Heriot-Watt? I appreciate that there is no soft year, that you would be straight into the tougher work, counting towards the degree. Is it difficult to pick up the subject or are allowances made for 2nd year entry?
Also are there enough 2nd year students to bond socially, or is it a feeling of trying to break into established groups?
I am from N. Ireland, and not really interested in doing the extra first year if I didn't have to, because of fees etc. Thanks
We have the answer...
