Hi,

I wanted to ask how many hours a day are required when doing the foundation programme leading into Optometry?
Also, do you have to attend for all 5 days a week?

Is a foundation programme more relaxed (not 9-5 most days?)

Thanks

Not sure if foundation into optom is different to foundation into engineering, but for engineering courses it was ridiculously easy and doubt you'd do 9-5.

Hi,

My target grades were Distinction,A, B and C.

As I was doing only one science (Chemistry,and they didn't consider Psychology as a science) I had to get BBB.

But I got Distinction,A,C and D and thankfully they let me on!!

No problem!
And are you going to do A2 this year then?

Have a look at this website;

http://www.aston.ac.uk/study/undergr...me-in-science/

I'm sure they should let you with a BTEC and 2 Alevels, if you get s Distinction for BTEC Business.
I did English Lit too and got a C!

Good luck with your studies!
And feel free to PM if you have any other questions- I'll be more than happy to help. (even though I haven't started the course just yet!)

hi I'm doing the engineering foundation this year and was wondering how easy the final year exams were as I also plan to take my A level exams whilst at uni.
