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?

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.
