    I started with 120 but soon dropped to 90 as it got way too much.. 90 is difficult but manageable if one of your modules starts in feb...

    I am currently studying

    SK320 (infectious disease)
    S347 (metals and life -- chemistry)
    SXL390 biology dissertation

    I really don't recommend 120 credits as its way too much and grades do suffer!!

    What are you planning on studying?

    Just wondered, I was hoping to do years 2 and 3 in 2 years. I'll be working between 16-30 hours a week so fingers crossed I should be fine.

    Level 2: SXHL288
    SK277
    S295
    S294

    Not 100% sure about level 3 modules but definitely: SXL390
    and then a choice between SD329, S317, S377 and/or S396, but that'll depend what I enjoy/what I'm good at at level 2.

    I suppose what you could do, if it weren't possible to do in 1 year is to complete 90 credits at level 3, then at least you have a BSc and complete the project the next year for the (hons) part.

    As always appreciate the help.
