Hello, I've just completed A-levels in Chem,Eco,ICT and AS Maths, and was wondering what the work load will be like in uni, in science and engineering related degrees, will be as intense as A-levels? and also are how many exams are taken in the first year roughly, cause i'm really tired and pissed off wid all dis a level exams i just done. And what is da pass mark in da 1st year.

I think to pass you need about 40% in first year.

I'm not sure about engineering, but the workload in general shouldn't be too bad. Having said that, I know that science undergraduates (especially biology) have to go to a lot of lectures and seminars.

damn and of all the degrees i choose biology... lol. well we'll see just how the work is when i start in sept...

my friend is doing engineering and apparently 30% is a pass (!) and you're only allowed to fail one exam in each year otherwise u have 2 repeat the course, however, i believe that rules vary from uni to uni.
