Cheers

10/10 do not recommend. I started it in October 2018 alongnside DB125 and B122 and up until now it’s been alright easy enough to understand been getting marks in the 70s for assignments.. and now I’m at the stage where I’m not understanding the work it’s getting very complicated and me personally am better when I have someone physically explaining to me hence I have applied to brick uni. All depends on how u learn 🤷🏼*♀️

Whats your background in? Ive already made a start on the reading material and it seems to be quite easy for me. Probably helps I work full time in a industry relatable to the course.

I am only 18 and chose to do open uni because I wasn’t ready for brick uni. I have had 2 part time and 1 full time job so next to noting experience tbh. I think the course would be a lot easier for someone like you working in the industry and I know a lot of people who work in the industry that it has worked for! I found some tutors to be helpful but had 1 who gave the worst advice and help ever! However I did take 3 modules on while working full time so I think it was too much at once! B100 is definitely the easier module out of the 3!

Yeah youre advised to do 60 credits per year. Thats quite alot you took on. What was the other 2 units you took to make your full 120?

Yeah I know but the kind of job I had I was able to study while working as it wasn’t a busy place. And yes it made up 120 - I knew a few doing it successfully just wasn’t for me 🤷🏼*♀️

Sian8891x Yeah I chose you and your money and communication skills for business and management - I am doing the BA (Hons) Business Management degree. Have you chosen yours? Are you doing part or full time?
