Can I choose my units in an access to HE course?Watch
I've just finished Access to Humanities & Social Sciences at College of West Anglia. Exam board was CAVA. Study skills was compulsory worth 6 credits at level 3 grade pass or fail. There was the dissertation of 3000 words & 10 minute presentation to my tutor, that's 9 credits at level 3. Then there was subject choices of 3 out of English Literature, History, Psychology & Sociology. Each subject split into 3 or 4 units, first unit in each was 3 credits and pass or fail grade, remaining units varied on number of credits. Some were 3, some 6 & some 9.
My advice would be to look on the websites of the uni's you're thinking about applying to and find out how many distinctions & merits they want and also if they say what subjects they're looking for. For example the uni's may say distinctions in 36 credits & merits in 9, subjects to include 'xxxxx'.
Most uni's will want GCSE grade C in English Language & Maths. If you haven't, then the college you do your access course at should let you do them as well.
