Aberdeen... help, mad confusion! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Okay... so UCAS says to enter with A-levels only one needs CCC for the first year, which is alright. But then it says for second year entry joint honours students need BB in A-level, and as i wont get BB will i only be able to do the first year??? >.<

    Oh its a 4 years masters btw

    If you got BB you could miss out the first year, and go straight in to the second year so the degree would only be 3 years. I dont think it will be a masters.

    Aberdeen is a scottish university so a lot of people will be applying with highers and advanced highers not A-levels. Because Highers are more like AS grades and many apply after this at 17, then if you do full A-levels then you can in some cases skip the first year. So with CCC you can apply to do the whole course in 4 years, but not to miss a year and go straight to year two.
