    Great idea for a thread

    I'd say it should either be in Blogs or Grow Your Grades. Let me know where you want me to move it to

    Damn kiddo, what did you pick subjects wise as I know you can select modules or something, so I'm guessing biology and chemistry? I ask this as I plan to do one this year after A Levels since I chose the wrong subjects and have to find a route to Science some how :/

    Well there's different subject access courses, science-based, humanities-based, etc.

    Mine consists of psychology, chemistry, anatomy & physiology, microbiology and an extended research essay on a topic of my choice.
    Each of these subjects is roughly 1/2 of AS and 1/2 of A2

    If you're 19 or over, you can do an access course. But if you chose the wrong a-levels, perhaps a foundation year might be better for you.

    Oh nice, is Radiography something you've been into for a while?

    I've looked, it's either an access course or taking on two new A Levels. Foundation year usually applies to a C or above at A Level for science based subjects except a few universities do openly invite those with humanities based subjects

    Yeah! It's really cool and there's lots of modalities.

    Or gateway or something? I was under the impression there was something available for those who chose the wrong a-levels.

    What are you looking to get into?
