I was an access student (many moons ago). I was full time and sorry to say that your workload looks abuot right compared to the load that we had as full timers.

When I moved onto my degree - I was surprised at how much less the workload was for the degree, than the access course. Some of the other students on the degree also said that they had a lot less work to do on the degree than they'd had in their A'levels. So all I can say, is that it MIGHT get easier.

Here's something that might amuse you (bet you're not surprised though) -My Interdisciplinary study was "SEX - why is it an issue?" and I got 100% for it.

Funniest bit was that during the research, for a chapter on lesbian sex - a friend was helping me go through some books looking for relevant information. My mother was sat in the other room and heard my friend reading out a section on (Wait for it) Lesbian fist f*cking (sorry about that - plaiting my legs here). Anyway, my mother left very quickly and went and told her friends that I was applying for degree in Lesbianism!!!!

Went to see her when I found out from a friend of hers. Told her that the academic side was bloddy difficult - but the practicals were fun. She wasn't amused in the slightest and to this day thinks that I shagged women to get my degree.

Sounds a lot to me strawb!! I did a part time humanities access course about 6 years ago (even tho I've got a BA) - with a view to studying for MA. First year of access was brilliant - only missed a few deadlines and was told I could make them up in 2nd year. However I fell way behind very quickly in 2nd year and didn't even finish the course. But even so I don't think I had THAT many assignments at any one time. Good luck - hope you achieve your ambitions!

I am the world's worst wimp - when the going gets tough, I leg it.
