God help me, why the feck did I choose Chemistry??
I was doing Biology and Chemistry foundation year but I'm not very good at the Chemistry because of the Maths that is involved. Anyway I changed to Biology and English at the start of this year. I had failed my Chemistry exam and a bit of work...but I have to redo it and PASS even though I am not doing it anymore ;-( Whatever little Chemistry I did learn has completly evaporated from my mind and I just don't want to do it. I thought I could just swap courses and everything will be fine.
Has anyone else had this experience on a Foundation Year??
Also say I have to redo this Foundation Year, I would be on my second year of government funding, leaving 3 years left so I wouldn't be able to mess up the proper degree. This worries me alot because I wouldn't have the money to suppost myself through uni. Do Foundation Year people get extra funding becasue of the extra year they do??
Please any advice is welcome
why dont you get in touch with your personal tutor and tell him you need help with the coming chemistry exam and ask if there is someone, like a postgrad, who could help you study the material?
correct me if im wrong but foundation year chemistry probably covers the same basic stuff as that in gcse or A level. maybe you could grab a few gcse/ A level chemistry books as they explain them in a less daunting way. ask for past papers and put the information in the context of the exam.
shift your focus from failing/repeating the year to relearning what you need to know for the time being.
It says on your profile that you've attended three different university courses? And now you're considering repeating a year?
Do you honestly expect tax payers to fund you even further?
Jesus christ, the nerve on some people.
