Hi!
Have you checked the 'profiles' section on http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/...ses/80015.html ?
This will let you know what students had to say about the course! Hope this helps! -Sarah

Hi!

If you take SEFP (Biological Sciences) you can progress onto a number of different degrees after 1st year such as BioMed, Genetics, Pschology, Biology etc. But progression will depend on your results. For biomed you have to get 70% overall and pass 8/8 modules. Biology only requires 40% and 7/8 modules passing. It's not too hard to do, providing you are reasonably good at maths, bio and chem & work hard!

Hope this helps. I took the SEFP so do ask if you have questions.

How hard is it to get 70%?

Also, will people doing degrees know you're doing the SEFP? Is it obvious

If you are good at maths it won't be too hard. I got 65% and I'm terrible at maths- it pulled me down. And people won't know you are studying the SEFP unless you tell them. But really, there's no point lying about it. So many people take it (literally 100's) and it's well accepted.

Thanks, I was like 1 mark off an A in A-level Maths and want to transfer to a better Univeristy than City (I rejected) so I decided to do the SEFP. I hope I do well

Then you'll do brilliantly. Honestly. QM is a fantastic university, and the SEFP is a lot like A Levels at times, just at a uni. Best of luck! Anything else, let me know.

Hey! I'm also gonna be on the SEFP Biological science course this September, with view to moving on to biomed too But from what I can work out, it's basically just what everyone has already said. I'm crap at maths so I'm worried about the maths units, but I'm sure with hard work we can get the 70% needed to get to biomed

See you all in September!

Umm well the UCAS course code for that is HHX1 (engineering 4 year), have you tried doing a search for that? I searched CCX1 which is the bio SEFP and it found it no issue. But if that doesn't work then maybe call QMUL or the student finance office, I'm sure either would help

I know right! Wembley is the only one I can afford, even if I do have to travel everyday No I didn't, I only applied to the QMUL halls and then the CRM halls in Wembley, haven't even heard of it before now

I wanted to ask if theres a Facebook group where we could all get the info about qm/ etc and just stay in touch ?

Hi guys

I will also be starting the SEFP course for Biological sciences. I'm really anxious and worried I won't pass the foundation year to move onto the degree. what is the likelihood of passing the foundation year? Is it difficult?

Also can anyone please explain what topics are covered for the Maths?

My mind needs some ease 😣

Hi all,

I'm new on this. I'm starting SEFP I'm September too for Biological sciences. I'm also really nervous about this course.

How hard are the modules and what kind of topics do you cover? Also what kind of maths comes up? And please tell me there are no physics in Biological Sciences because I did not take physics!
