Access to HE- ScienceWatch this thread
I am wondering if anyone could tell me about the structure and content of the access to he course in science. I am currently signed up to begin a health access course in September but after going to the uni open day it sounds as if they want more chemistry than I thought? Also wondering how hard it is to actually get distinctions in the units? I am prepared to work hard as the uni requirements are high for the course I want to do (nutrition) but some chemistry and all of physics I struggle with and it does not come naturally to me. TIA
UCL, when selecting Access to HE as the qualification, say that this is not sufficient for entry. Therefore - I would highly suggest that you contact your target Uni's before enrolling on your Access Course. They will be able to advise you. If you are targeting a certain Uni, you may have to study A-levels in your own time. It can be done, so don't fret!
Ref Distinctions. There are a number of users on this board who scored 45/45, its possible. Once you get into the groove you kind of know what is required to get the marks. I also scored 45/45. Any specific advice you may want, please feel free to drop me a PM.
Distinctions are not impossible to get at all, I managed 42/45 at distinction and I'm one of those with no GCSEs and left school at 14 so I had no clue on the science but I still did it and it wasn't too hard to achieve as long as I didnt let myself fall behind and asked for help when needed.
