I’m starting college soon and I need some help! !! I want to be a forensics scientist so I thought I would need to study biology but my college told me I’d have to do HNC social sciences!! I have no idea what to expect from this course and it’s difficulty !! I was also told this course might envolve maths which has made me so anxious since I’m really bad at maths !! Can you guys please tell what to expect from this course !!

Hey, I'm currently studying HNC Social Science, hopefully carrying onto further study to become a forensic psychologist as well. In terms of the difficulty of the course, I personally think it is easy to comprehend but it demands a lot of work, reading and studying. the subjects differ at each college you attend whether it be history, politics, economics, geography. I've currently got history and politics with the mandatory psychology, sociology and research and methodology. Research and methodology does include maths but only for one unit which is standard deviation, however, I would presume that if your course is offering economic it would definitely include mathematics. anyway, i would absolutely recommend HNC social science to get into the field of forensic psychology, further onto university to study psychology or a dual degree where you can choose various subject to study I would personally recommend Psychology, Sociology and Criminology BUT the only university I have seen that offers criminology currently is Stirling which is kinda sucky. After that, studying a masters in forensic psychology or applied criminology or forensic psychology. I Hope that helps.

The course in Abertay focuses more on chemistry and biology!! Like I said maths isn’t what I’m going for since I’m so bad at it !! Social sciences would be perfect for me because it’s what I identify myself with subjects that envolve sociology etc !!

Hey can anyone help me? I'm currently doing a NQ Law and Criminology, then I will go on further to progress in a HNC Social Science and then hopefully a HND Social Science. After that does anyone know what I can do with it? I want to become a psychologist but I'm not sure what route to take to become that. Thanks
