Hey all,
May this thread reach you in the best of health. Is anyone here applying for the access to Leeds programme? I was wondering is there a point of me even applying to the programme if I know I am going to smash the entry requirements? I will be applying for the Diagnostic Radiography course. Please let me know if you are applying to the University of Leeds and which course you intend to do.

I've applied to Leeds for maths, but I don't think I'll be applying for the scheme. I'm still undecided on what's going to be my firm/insurance. If you know you'll get the grades then there isn't much point - but if you know it's going to be your firm choice and you meet the criteria for the scheme, then it's always good to know you have a safety net, I guess

I am in the same boat as you to be honest. Still not sure what will be my firm choice. However, I think i will apply for the scheme just for it to support my application further. Do you live close to the university of Leeds or will you have to get accommodation?

I live over 100 miles away from Leeds haha! But it's good to get all of the help you can get, are you planning on getting accommodation?

If you can apply to it you would be silly not to.

woah 100 miles, but don't let that impact your choice. moving out for uni could be the best thing to happen haha. I live like 40 miles away from the uni so yh would be looking for accommodation.

Though if you're not sure whether you'd put it as your firm/insurance, there doesn't seem much point in going to the effort of applying for it, if it's not one of your choices in the end. Are you applying to Leeds?

I can't say for sure, sorry! Though I haven't seen anywhere that they put any focus on them - they're just another part of the wide range of things they consider during the application process, so don't worry too much! Did AS go okay?

I'd recommend waiting. As they'll send you an offer, and then another offer (access to leeds offer) which is 2 grades lower. So its worth waiting... there's no benefits to firming this early anyway.
