Hey guys, bit of an odd wordy question here overall but I hope someone can help!
So my sixth form years weren't great, my college wouldn't let me swap from physics to biology (despite asking to change at the beginning of my first year, and getting an A* in bio GCSEs) and so at the end of my two years of A levels I ended up getting AAE. Luckily UEA accepted me for English Lit anyway, but recently I've been having doubts about the career path I've chosen which has left me conflicted, especially as I've been on a downward spiral academically since college (personal reasons). I'm at the end of 2nd year as well, so it's really too late to switch majors. Personally I feel like biology would be a better fit for me, specifically marine biology (not because I want to just study whales/dolphins either!). To complicate things as well, I've recently come to the end of my stint on Study Abroad in Canada, and really want to do a proper degree over there, as I much prefer how the Canadian school system works and teaches.
Undergrad isn't looking great for me going into my 3rd year, so while I'm still going to finish my degree at UEA and give it all I've got, I was looking into my options in doing a different undergrad abroad. This is crazy, I know, but I'm prepared to take a year or two out to earn money to spend on education, and have looked into scholarships and bursaries too. To get into the biology course I'm looking at, I need to have "Mathematics (A or AS Level) with a minimum grade of C, and Chemistry and Physics (GCSE or O Level)" as an international student. I have the GCSEs with good grades, but now I need to get AS Level maths. Can anyone suggest to me a good distance/fast track AS Level mathematics course? Is it even possible to do on top of my final year? For reference, I do two modules per semester, and while of course its mostly down to work ethic, I was wondering if anyone had been in my position.
Sorry this is such a wordy question, but I really don't know where else I can ask this, or whether it will work at all. Just feeling a bit lost and out of my depth right now.
