What Uni Course Can I Do With My A Levels

Should i revise my a levels for uni?

Actually i am planning to go for biological sciences course at uni and i just wanted to know whether or not i should revise my a levels for that course?
I did Chemistry, Maths and Biology at A level

Is Economics hard at uni level?

Not too hard if your really into it.

I hold an undergrad in economics and currently going through a MSc in Finance Development.

Two major thing to look forward when rolling in at econs:
1.) math
2.) logic

1.) Maths are basic skill to do the work on several courses. Depending on your school, you could get:
a) one or two algebra courses (a+b=c; a-b(c)=d... and so on...)
b) one or two calculus (if you did well in the first two, there no need to fear)
c) one or two statistics
d) one or two advanced courses (econometrics, numerical methods, others) -- most likely you will not study this on undergrad, so no need to worry here, unless your applying at Cambridge, Oxford, MIT... --

2.) Logic. Essential skill to Talk, Read, Write and Understand Economics.
The rest of the courses will be piece of cake: research, debate on policy, theory, history, business and finance, etc etc etc

What university courses can I do after my A-level business, accounting or economics?

It is always upon you which field to choose. Don’t let other decide for you. You may go for evaluation and then decide which discipline best serve your interest.If you go for Diploma in Commerce (D. Com) which is two years course and opt for “Accounting” against “Shorthand,” you will enjoy a better ground then to decide which course to study onward.In D. Com you will study some basics of various subjects including basics and fundamentals of Economics, Accounting, Finance, Commerce and Business Management. When you study all these, your interest may definitely be increased in one among them.You may further decide to do Bachelor in either of them including Economics, Commerce, Management Sciences and so on. Each option to do your Master will be open to you where you could better decide.

Are these good A levels to take?

Hey cat tyley
Im an A level student and at GCSE I got an A* for science and I take chemistry which I find really boring and hard, also almost all of my chemistry class take physics and they say it’s the hardest of all the a- LEVELS but if you think you may want to do it at uni im sure you will have the aptitude.

I think your A- level choices are good, and I don’t think you want to here this but I don’t think you should do five mainly because universities don’t even care if you do an extra a level so its kind of a waste of time. My boyfriend did five a- levels and got grade A,A,A,A,A and said it was the stupidest thing he ever did.

Plus at a- level each subject is given 5 hours so if you do 5 you will have no free periods and A LOT more revision, I would advise you to do it if it was worth it but the fact is employers AND UNIVERSITIES don’t care, you get no preference for 5 or 4 or 3.
I think you should forget about classical civilization
I also do English its my favorite subject and really enjoyable
I do maths and its boring, but not too difficult

Do physics, chemistry, maths and English good range of subjects for medicine except most uni’s want biology, and there good for a mathematics degree, physics degree and chemistry degree you could even do law

Good luck with your GCSE’S, hope this helps

Do AS levels count in ucas points to get into university?

I did one year of A level and so have three AS levels that add up to 100 UCAS points will this help me get an interview for the university i apply to above my expected grades

What university courses will an A level in biology, chemistry and psychology get me into?

This varies significantly by country and university. You need to check with specific universities or university admissions services. If you’re doing A levels, I’m going to take a guess that you’re studying in the UK. The university admissions service for the UK is UCAS. Their website contains listings of courses and requirements for those courses.Your A level subjects will allow for plenty of choice, particularly in the sciences. You should make your choice based on what you are interested in, and would be willing to spend 3 or more years studying.

I’m confused about what university course to take. Should I take A Levels?

I’m confused about what university course to take. Should I take A Levels?First of all, as soon as you are 21 you are considered to be a mature student. See the UCAS guidelines on mature students: Mature undergraduate studentsIf you want to work to raise your tuition fees, you don’t have to take A Levels. You could consider another type of access course but as you have already had one offer, you may not need to do this once you become a mature entry student.You are concerned that English Literature might not be a good subject for your later career. You could consider journalism or copywriting or something similar. As you are interested in humanitarian development, you could consider journalism specialising in this field. Sociology or anthropology may also be good second subjects for you.I recommend not taking a course because it will give you a career if the subject does not interest you. You will have a working lifetime of regretting that you did not follow your passion.Don’t worry too much about your age. You are still young. After 5 years of part time courses at technical college, I applied for and gained a place to take an MSc by taking a pre-masters entry course first at the age of 24, so this was my first full time university experience.Look for joint honours courses that might satisfy your interest in literature but would add something more vocational if you want to improve your employability. For example: Highest ranking Unis for English Literature And Journalism Degrees United-KingdomI haven’t answered all your questions, but I hope that I have helped.

Help me with university and foundation courses please!?

Hi, I finished my GCSE (Cambridge Ordinary Levels) in 2010 and my results were 4bs and 2cs. I'm facing a problem of whether to continue my A Levels or do a foundation course (Monash Pre-University Foundation Year or NCUK International Foundation Year). I'm having some personal issues in school so I really want to choose between doing the foundation course or SAT. My question is whether it's possible to apply to US universities with only GCSE and SAT? I'm an international student and I'm not sure whether i should enter a uni in Australia/UK/US.
Right now I personally prefer Monash Pre university course but then according to what I've read online it seems to me that it's often harder for foreigners to get a job (well, that might be a problem in most of the other countries too).
On the other hand, if I do return to my home country and apply for a job, the companies prefer US universities more because our education system is more of the US style but to tell the truth I seriously don't know why lol

Also, there is a foundation course (well, not EXACTLY) for Northwood University and Missouri University of Science and Technology available in the country that I live right now. I don't know much about universities so I would like to know whether these universities are worth the time i spend the course and years.

Between, I'm hoping to study business management (or anything to do with the marketing,human resources side) or psychology. I'm also interested in broadcasting. What would be the unis you'd recommend for these majors?

The foundation courses available in the country that I live at the moment are - Monash Pre Uni Fountation Year(MUFY), NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) and the course for Northwood University & Missouri University of S&T.
(I'd like to also know what are the other universities that accept MUFY and IFY)
thank you :)

Is a further maths A level useful for many degrees at university? If so, how/why?

A-level maths would be a requirement for many university degree courses.At the very minimum, these would include any course in maths, physics, chemistry, engineering (in any discipline) and astronomy. There may be many more, depending on the university.For all these courses, A-level maths is the minimum which would be required to understand the course. Not being at the required standard in maths would mean that you would need remedial classes to get to the point where what you are being taught in your degree course makes sense.Maths is not a collection of isolated facts which are to be remembered and later regurgitated at exam time. Maths is a collection of knowledge where each new facet is built on what has been taught before.You cannot, for example, describe the motion of a swinging pendulum completely without understanding second order differential equations, which require you to understand integral calculus, which requires you to understand differential calculus, which requires you to understand Cartesian geometry , which requires ……..For the science and engineering courses, maths is one of the major tools which are used to describe how the universe works.I have a degree in maths. While studying for that degree, I found that at least 75% of the course had been covered in the Higher National Diploma (HND) I had taken 20 years earlier when studying electrical engineering. (I had A-level maths as a prerequisite for the HND course).
