AACD

I did Biology Chemistry and History and got CDD at AS; I want to improve to atleast BCC but I don’t know if Aston will allow it (they need BBC atleast). Have you entered foundation year? Do you know how many people get into Optom through Foundation years - I’ve heard that not many do

I've one of the fortunate ones and got into the foundation year!
going to start in September-not sure yet how many people would have got into the course!
oh I see so you haven't gone on to your second year of sixth form yet?

do you do OCR Chemistry?
i did OCR chemistry, psychology English literature and health and social care.
i got a D at AS too and got a D at the end of A2 too!
Chemistry by far was my hardest subject!! I struggled and worked SO hard but thankfully still passed and got onto my course!
youll be fine😃

Could you give any details on the foundation year (how it is, what you'll learn) and what are the chances of getting onto the actual course?

Hi. I’ve just joined the foundation course to progress to optom. Wanted to know more about the foundation course through a student perspective.
