    I'm thinking about taking Psychology BSc at the University of Worcester. How competitive is the course and is there any relevant work experience that I could do which may assist me?

    I'm about to move onto A2 next year, so it feels like I've got time, but these sort of things creep up on you.

    Or even any general tips that would assist me into getting accepted?

    Not sure what work experience you could do but the course won't be as competitive as other courses at Worcester (e.g teaching & nursing) or compared to Psychology at other (especially top) unis.
    The entry requirements are 280 UCAS Tariff points with a grade C or above at one subject.
    It doesn't say anything about having to have an interview.

    Which other unis are you thinking about applying to?

    me either, dont worry. ive heard quite a few people are still waiting.
    someone rang up and got told their application had been received, but because it was the first year worcester uni had used an online application for accommodation they were having some problems, which is why some of us got that email and others havent.
    if you are worried about it all, just give them a ring to check they have got it but im sure they have.
