    Hi, please help!!

    I've applied to do an Access Course in Social Science this September. I have an offer of University from my firm choice which I'm planning on deferring.

    Access Courses aren't really a big thing in my area, and I don't know anyone who has done one so I'm just looking for a bit of advice.

    I understand that it's going to be incredibly hard and I'm prepared to work my ass off, I just need a little help of how it's broken down. And, if you've done it before, what you studied in either Psychology, Sociology, Law and Criminology, plus study skills.

    ANY information you could offer will be greatly received, thank you!!

    Hi, I can't answer your question, but a lot of people in the Mature Students section have done and are doing access courses, so you make get more responses there

    I'm about to finish an access course and I haven't found nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.

    My course has 15 credits in academic prep - which is a complete waste of time and I resent having to attend, 15 credits Psychology which is fine and 30 credits Sociology which I hate.

    I never started an essay earlier than the night before and I've had all merits and a distinction, not really breaking my balls so with more effort I could have achieved much better marks.

    I only need 33 credits at merit and passing the access course to meet my conditional offer so I'm not really giving it my all, and it's still working out fine.

    Edit: This is part time evenings, not full time days by the way.
