Help, I haven’t achieved the grades I need for my uni choices. I’m having a gap year anyway and I don’t know whether to resit or to try and get onto a foundation course for physio at uwe or Manchester met. If anyone has done a foundation degree pls can you tell me how it was. I’m struggling to make up my mind.

Hey i suggest you resit as you are taking a gap year. Foundation degrees are harder to pass. I know people who did foundation degrees but they did better in their a level exams and used a levels to apply. It is therefore better to do a-levels than start something you are not accustoum to with respect to the syllabus. As the a level syllabus is known to you ... you will be familiar with the topics and it will be easier to resit☺☺☺☺ Hope this helps and do let me know what you decide to do!!!!!

Hi, I did a foundation year at Coventry because I just could see myself staying back (it was more of a mental thing for me) It is hard to get the marks they want so I would say check with the unis what you need to get. I had to get 75 for Coventry and didn’t get that but because other unis accepted the foundation year I was able to go to a different uni. Also check if their foundation degree or year is accepted in different unis as some may want to know what you were taught and if it doesn’t cover a lot of biology they frown upon them.

Hi no thats fine, i did a foundation year at Coventry university uni because they said if i could get 75% on the foundation year i could apply to study physio (the course was health and social care). overall because my condition was i had to get 75% overall but no less than 65 on any particular module. So I did get a spot after passing the interview but due to funding i couldn't start the course.I then reapplied to other unis when my funding was sorted and then Coventry wanted 78% and a B in biology which i didnt have. I then apply to other unis that will accept that foundation year and got into east London. I just graduated in july 2019 and started working a week after as a qualified physio Follow Sarahs_truths on Instagram for more advice and guidance
