I'm not too sure if anyone has been in the same situation before or are at the moment, but I was wondering whether anyone thinks that doing an access course alongside an A level, both full time in a year is too much a workload.
Personally, I don't think that it is but I would jst like to know whether any access students feel like the coursework, etc that they get leaves them with plenty of free time or not.
I want to apply to Warwick for the History, Literature and Culture of the Americas in 2010 and I am a mature student (22) and I don't want to take two years fulfilling the requirements. It asks for an A level in English or History, however I have spoken to the admissions and they said that whilst I do not need A levels alongside an access course, it would strengthen my application.
I have AS levels, and I would go back to finish the A2 but I am just a bit concerned that the structure will be different and that the college won't let me take it up.
Does anybody have any answers to my queries?
A levels or Access in this situation? Watch

You should try and post the same question in the mature students thread, if you haven't done it yet. I would consider doing both, A level and a Access course would be extremely difficult to both complete. It will be impossible to attend both class's together a level subject class's and access courses in history/other etc Yes having both A level and a diploma in access course would increase your possible,yet a access course by it self is mostly a acceptable entry into most subject/college etc.

Thanks for your reply, it is always good to have another opinion. I'm just worried incase I apply and get rejected and wonder if it had to do with not possessing another A level. I'm only thinking of doing one A level alongside the access as two would just be impossible, I will talk to the college and see what they suggest.
