Which course to study Watch
Engineering seems to be what most of the oil companies look for but I've never really been good at Maths and I'm guessing an Engineering course would have a lot of that in it?
Does anyone have any advice?
But, yes, the amount of maths and physics will vary by degree and area. There's always going to be a fair amount though.
How competent are your maths skills. Also could you be a bit more specific about what you'd like to work as?
I got a 2 in Physics also but again, that was about 6 years ago and I dropped it at A level.
I've got three C's at Higher in English, Business Management and History. Is that going to get me into a University to study something like in the link you posted?
p.s What did you search for to get that course? I'd like to have a look at other Uni's offering similiar courses. Cheers.
Although if you do want to search for courses then try www.ucas.com
You won't get into that course with those grades and subjects. They will require maths and often physics. The entrance requirements are
"AB at Advanced Higher, including Mathematics and preferably Physics. Physics required at Higher Grade B if not offered at Advanced Higher."
or for the BEng BC including maths and perferably physics. Physics at B if not offered at advanced higher.
You'll not be able to get into any engineering courses without maths. If you do want to be an engineer then, after serious consideration, you'll have to go back and study at least maths in your highers. Or find a degree with a foundation year (if there are any) Be aware that you'll be dealing with vvrying amounts of advanced applied maths and physics.
There are technical positions you can enter with HNCs or HNDs. I don't know of any. There are also technician apprecticeships
It looks as though you may need to go and do maths and/or physics at higher or A Level.
