Thanks he did not get in for Biomedical, so course was changed to extended science, in hindsight, I think it is a blessing, this foundation should hopefully cement the foundation he need so to speak for the year 1 degree, where he will have a better understanding of what is required from him because it is taught in a university, I have heard stories of students failing first years because they found it really tough. I have read on the course and it will definitely build on his present knowledge, and it will be like a revision year really but in a university environment, so he will not really feel left out. l am making any sense sorry
It makes total sense, and I agree it sounds like a fabulous plan!
Onwards, to good things but with a bit if intellectual breathing space too, consolidating knowledge and getting used to the rigours of uni life!
Good luck to you and your DS!
