    No my course is called 'Drama in the Community' - this is what I study at university. I study the subject of drama and how it works in society and with the community haha.

    Thank you though for clarifying I knew what I was talking about

    I did Biomedical Science at KCL. I found 3rd year easier than 2nd year but that was mainly because I picked modules that were heavily exam based - lots of my friends who chose other modules ended up with quite tight coursework deadlines and the same number of exams as me in the end anyway. The main thing to worry about in 3rd year is your dissertation/project.

    2nd year was quite challenging because you do a similar number of modules as first year but the depth of knowledge required is much greater (also having to do extra reading). Also I picked an anatomy module which probably wasn't the wisest choice.

    we dont get to pick our modules but ours is assignment based and no exams but we get the extra reading anyway

    I started in Oct 2013 and I have deferred for the last year and a half due to health. I'm looking to go back either this October or next October. I'm studying my degree with OU so they are quite flexible when it comes to taking time off. I have 16 years to finish it but I imagine I'll have it finished by 2019 at most.
