    Hi,
    I have always wanted to go to Keele to study Physics, until I found out it is only available as a single honors. The only subject that really excites me out of the list is Music Technology, I have been a performer all my life and when my dad was in a band I loved to watch him edit music as well, unfortunately I took Maths, Physics and Chemistry at college and I am struggling to link my subjects to Music Technology. I have looked at studying maths or chemistry with it but I don't think I will get the entry requirements for the course in the specific subjects...
    What should I do?

    Are you really prepared to do a random subject you've never done before just to go to Keele? That doesn't seem very sensible, you should prioritise course over university.

    You don't have to do a joint hons degree. Keele does a Physics major degree - that means 77% of your time is spent doing physics and you only study physics in the last year. As for entry requirements... their website says there are no subject requirements for music technology if its combined with another subject.

    For music technology I can get in but I am trying to look at chemistry and maths but I doubt that I'll get a B in either of those subjects as in Maths I got a U last year and Chemistry I got a D... I really like the physics department at keele and I was looking at the major degree in physics but I still need to combine it with another subject so i am still stuck...

    2 weeks ago you said the only subject you wanted to combine Physics with was music technology. Now you're thinking about chemistry or maths? You don't seem very sure about what it is you want to do, so I think you should focus on picking the right degree and worry about entry requirements later.

    Hi,

    My name is Jodie I work in the Student Services Centre at Keele. I recommend if you are not too far away from us coming and visiting any schools you are interested in that way you can discuss your options with them. You can do this by coming to an independent visit http://www.keele.ac.uk/visiting/independentvisits/.

    All you need to do is get in touch with any schools which you would like to talk to by emailing/phoning them: http://www.keele.ac.uk/faculties/.

    I hope this helps!

    Jodie

    I know it's like months later and I've already got all my offers and everything but it does say in my original post that I was also thinking of either chemistry or maths... it's at the very end

    Why have you bumped a 7 month old thread? :confused:
