Apologies for if this does not consort to group rules.

I am currently studying in my A2 year, taking: Biology, Economics and English Language. Preferably, I would like to study Economics or Biology at Undergraduate level.
Could anyone reccomend a university or a course within a university that would suit me? I'm finding it hard to find a course which allows me to study without Maths.

All replys are greatly appreciated ;D

Hello there!

I hope this post is within group rules. If not feel free to delete.... I am researching for a PGCE (thats PostGraduate Certificate In Education), winter research project which is about how APEL  ( thats Accreditation Of Prior Experiential Learning) - is actually implemented, and used (or not) in the "real" world...

Its based in the UK, but I would be equally interested in peoples thoughts from other countries as well. :)

As part of that, I have cooked up a questionaire which I have posted on what is destined, hopefully to become my teaching/ PGCE journal  - something else I have to keep for the course, and I would be really grateful if you have a spare moment or two, if you could pop over and fill the survey - or the relevant bits - out. And feel free to rant if you have strong feelings on anything in it.

The link is

Thank you so much!

Hello,I wonder if anyone could help me,I have a piece of work that needs to be handed in tomorrow.I have done most of it but there is one question that is baffling me,if anyone could help me I would be so greatful,as it goes towards my final mark!
The question :
"Identify the meaning of the word (the word being 'masque') that seems to be most relevant to a literary critical context and give an example"

My main problem is that I have no idea what the term'literary critical context' means.As I said before any help will be much appreciated. :)

Study tips? [8:07pm Friday, September 28th, 2007]

I was wondering if anyone had some tips for studying at degree level.

When I have free time (which I don't have much of) I fritter it away doing other things - things that need doing, but not focusing on my studies. When I have assignments to do, THEN I focus.

Aside for general research we get asked to do for our next lectures, what else should/could I be doing in the mean time?

A Level in English Literature [6:43pm Monday, June 4th, 2007]


Hi everyone

It looks like this is the right community to ask this question - sorry if I am mistaken.

I am looking to get A Level in English Literature and need advice regarding the best school / colleage for it. I live in London and think a two year course to be attended once or twice a week.

Could anyone share their ideas please on where I should better go for this to have it high quality and interesting?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Books for sale [1:50pm Wednesday, May 16th, 2007]

Hey guys, this community is quiet but I thought I'd try this. I have two books for sale:

Foundations of Marketing by Jonathan Groucutt (printed 2005). I paid £20.99 for this but I'll take £15.00 ono.
It's hardly been used, I studpidly bought it a week before I dropped out of the course (postgrad business degree), it's been sat on my bookshelf ever since. I've made no notes in it and it's in a brand new condition.

Managerial Economics Second Edition by Ivan Png (printed 2006). I paid £29.99 for it in the same circumstances as the book above. I'll take £21.99 ono for it. Again, it's in brand new condition.

Both books could cost between £3.85 and £4.95 to send.

I'll take offers on these but I'm also selling them elsewhere so I may withdraw the sale at any time.

quite a long shot, but has anyone ever studied the pagan anglo-saxon conversion to christianity? i'm really stuck with an essay.
drop a note

[7:41pm Monday, October 30th, 2006]

a bit of a daft question about psychology undergrad essays.
generally, do references within the text (e.g..."Anxious-avoidant children have been shown to be more hostile, aggressive and distant with peers (Erikson, Sroufe & Egeland, 1985)") count towards the total word count in essays? I've only been given a limit of 1500 words (which i'm 400 words over), and considering a lot of my essay is just made up of author references, i'm wondering if i can get away by not counting them in?
i can't find any instruction in my course handbook and it would be pointless emailing my tutor now, as its got to be in first thing in the morning :|
i hope that made sense. argh, help pleeease.

x-posted as i'm desperate!

Motivation & tips [6:23pm Sunday, October 22nd, 2006]

Ok ladies I need your help. I am attempting to write my first big assignment since starting university and whilst I have no problem with the subject matter I am finding it really hard to motivate myself to sit down and write the thing. So, I need your tips for improving concentration and opinions (best to study with or without background noise etc.).

Hey guys, is anyone having problems accessing Blackboard? I've been trying all night and it keeps telling me "An error occurred while the system was processing this login request." It's driving me crazy because I really need to look at some module details for a lecture tomorrow.

Edit: it's working now.
