Which Access to HE course is better out of Access to humanities and Access to science, in terms of which would get me onto the better degrees? (I’m not 100% sure what I want to do at Uni, I just want to get in for next year so I can join at the same time as people my age because I dropped out of AS last year). I realise this question could be subjective so I just want your guys personal opinions.

Also, I only turned 18 last week, and even though the college have told me that it’s fine and universities will accept me, I’m not convinced because I’ve heard access courses are more for older students who have been out of education for a while. Do you guys think I’ll be alright? Thanks for any help in advance. 🙂

Hey!
You're asking a very good question. The best thing you can ever do is speak to universities directly if you want to be sure that the course you're doing is going to be accepted.
As far as I have heard, access is for people who have been out of education for at least 3 years.

You may be told to go to a college and take A levels. But If they allow you on access course then brilliant.

Other thing to consider is university with a foundation year. This adds an extra year ( year 0) to your degree as university will prepare you for the course. However, again you need to check this with the University you wanna go to.

Attend open days. Speak to the students of your local university. Maybe even join some societies. Ask from real students what they think about their course what they like and don't like.

Once you know what subject you are interested in, go for it! You're young and your brain is like a sponge it will absorb information and is easily Trained. So even if you change your path after you go to uni or even after you graduate its fine. At least you learn transferable skills and a degree will act as a bridge for you.
Keep in mind apart from medicine you won't get funding for your second degree.

Once you know your course contact universities and ask them about foundation year, access, A level, etc.

Hope that helps.

Plus, live in your time. Don't look at others and what stage they are at.


Best wishes
