    Hi,


    I did the Foundation Programme 2015/2016. You can choose your own timetable that fits your life circumstances. I worked throughout the course and thank God I passed all my subjects but I must say that 3 different subjects are too much especially, when you are not into it and has to force yourself in order to pass the whole course. If you will have Maths that is super easy, you will have 2 Assignments and 2 In-class tests. English I had in total 7 Assignments. Sociology, what shall I say, I still don't know what went into me to choose it. Law I had 4 assignments. Study Skills was is also easy I think it was just only 5 Assignments and IT was in total 3 Assignments. It all depends on you. You really need to be focus. Otherwise you submit assignments late and they will be capped 40% and that hurts, especially when it was graded with an A.
    The good think is you do not need to study a Joint Honour, so if you want to go for a single degree go ahead. In September I am going to study Law.

    Good luck.

    Ohh I didn't realise there was anything on the 7th? did you find that out when you timetabled?

    I didn't think there was anything until the 9th?

    I move in on the 6th and timetable then too so don't really know anything about anything yet

    They're not that hard, but it depends how you are with assignments I guess. There aren't that many either. I'm sure you'll be fine

    Thankyou. But I meant the assessments at the information event. The ones you have to take before they can let you on the course. Im pretty worried about them in case I don't pass them.
