    How have people who did a science foundation year found it? the chemistry and maths in particular? this would be especially useful if you attended nottingham university.
    I chose my A level subjects before I knew what I wanted to do, and am missing chemistry to apply for the dietetics course at the university I would like to study; The Nottingham uni. if anyone went there in particular, how did you find it??? how much is it to pass?? is a place on your course of choice guaranteed if you pass ? or is it not worth it and should i apply somewhere where they only require the biology a level that i am studying?

    perhaps this is a bit irrelevant but, you see, id love to go to a russel group university as i will be the first in the family to even go to university. we haven't had the most academic background due to financial struggles so no one could really afford it, and there is so much pressure in my college to go to a russel group university.

    You may find some people to talk to here. If you meet the entry requirements you will be fine and course info will be on the website. Passing this course does not guarantee you anything as you still need to meet the progression requirements which can be found here. It's great that you're first in family to go to uni. That's a massive achievement and something to ask your referee to mention as well. However please bear in mind that Russell group refers to a group of research intensive unis which means little to undergrads and even less so if you're do a vocational course i.e dietics which is more focused on the job you will do after you graduate.
