Contacting potential Universities

Postby clarelou » Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:22 pm

Oh no, me again!

I have contacted 2 universities so far. And basically both referred me to the website to look at what enhance requirements are. I am not sure if I am expected to get written confirmation of required entry reqs from the unis. I. E derby uni website accept (currently) pass in access to HE at level 3 with level 2 maths and English. Is this enough to confirm my current course with DLC will allow me to apply. Also, when do I apply. Ohhhhh getting my knickers in a twist :-(

Not quite sure what you mean my dear. Yes the Access Diploma through the DLC will give you the necessary entry requirements - but you should look on the university websites and check how many credits at level 3 are expected (the normal amount is 45, but some do ask for more), if any need to be at Merit or Distinction, and if 6 credits in English and Maths at level 2 is enough (unless you have GCSEs, then that's fine). You apply when UCAS opens again, usually around the 15th Sept.

If I've missed the point completely, please do let me know!
