Hi
I came to visit on an Open Day last year but I have had to repeat a year due to 'failing' my AS year, getting EEUU.
I was wondering if Bangor is any more strict grade-wise on students who have had to re-do year 12. I did change my subjects (apart from Psychology but different exam board).
I also have another question. I am worried that my subjects will be seen as 'weak'. I wish to study Psychology with Criminology & Criminal Justice. My current AS Levels are:
Film Studies (Predicted A)
Psychology (Predicted B)
Sociology (Predicted B)

Also, would this joint honours course have BPS accreditation? I've tried to find this info on the website but can't seem to find it

All that said, I will definitely be applying to Bangor in October, I loved the area and the course seems great!

Thanks for your help! x

Hello. I can't find that course existing on their website, however there IS 'AND' (psychology and criminology and criminal justice), which is different. There's 50:50 psych/crim. This course is not accredited and it says so online:

"These degree schemes, including Joint Honours, will not qualify you for the Graduate Basis for Registration of the British Psychological Society." - http://www.bangor.ac.uk/psychology/u...duate-courses/

If you're certain there is a 'with' course, contact the psychology administrator directly.

You're welcome. I'm sure there's probably some forensic psychology modules in there somewhere.

http://www.bangor.ac.uk/psychology/u...800-Psychology here's a list of all the psychology modules available.

Psychology is the most popular subject here. So I imagine it would also draw the most applicants, but I've noticed Bangor the past year has let in students who didn't make the required points and still got let in through clearing. So Bangor isn't exactly the most strict for selection if that's the case.

If you get fair grades in those subjects then you should easily get in I'd think.

I hope so Bangor is my dream uni and I think it would break my heart if I didn't get in.

Hi Emiloujess,

If you would like to discuss entry requirements and your qualifications then the best people to speak to would be the admissions team in the departments.

The e-mail address for Psychology is:
[email protected]

And the e-mail address for Criminology and Criminal Justice is:
[email protected]

Do get in touch - we would much rather you have a chat with the right people before you apply than have you fretting over not being able to study the course you want.

Good Luck
