    Hi I am applying to do an access diploma in biomedical and biological science part time at belfast met sept 2016 . I left school 11 years ago and didn't pass science gcse I have no clue about science / biology has anyone else ever done this course with no prior understanding and passed ? I want to eventually do nursing . Also anyone done this course tell me what it's like ?

    Access courses are difficult in the sense that you do not get a break. Its always assignments and tests all the time. But if you work hard and attend classes everything will work out fine. I am a mature Access student myself with 3 kids but i have managed to get 24 Distinctions so far and counting. I am aiming for 45 because my cause is competitive. I have limited scientific knowledge but there are books, internet, journals (for subjects like Health studies). You will be fine.
