I have a HNC in Mechanical/ Electrical engineering. Is it likely I can get into Uni?Watch
I have a HNC in Mechatronics but am not interested in the electricalof things and would be looking to study a Mechanical engineering degree. I havephoned some Universities and asked them whether they will accept it as entryhowever most have said that it would be considered on a case by case process. I was wondering if anyone has got into University with a HNC before and if sowhich type would be likely to accept. I’m not hopeful for any of the higherlevel universities as I know that they pretty much just take on people who havegot A levels. I tried to look at how much UCAS points the HNC would beworth however after looking around the internet for a bit it seems that becausethey are a higher level qualification than A levels, they don’t count for anyUCAS points and instead contribute towards credits?If it helps I also have a LVL 3 BTEC National Diploma inEngineering, which according to the UCAS point calculator equates to 80 points.
I am taking an AS in maths this year just to make sure my maths knowledge is suitable and although it might not count towards anything I think it would show willing on my application.
I would try to enter as a first year as I think doing the first year would back up my maths knowledge even further and prepare me better for the later years.
This sounds positive towards me getting into a university as I was a little worried that the HNC wouldn't be a suitable qualification to get in with!

I was hoping to stay in England or not far away from England due to family etc. Can I ask why you ask about Scottish universities in particular? Do they allow for HNC qualification in a different way to unis in other parts of Britain?
