I had to do an access course to get in to Uni to do nursing. The college I did the course at offered to fields of study one for those hoping to go into the social and medical fields and one for those who wanted to go into teaching. The courses were diffirent but I am not sure how.
So in this case it was important to sort of know which field you wanted to go into.
I did the access course in Health and Social Care and did Psychology, Sociology, and Biology as well as Personal Study Skills. I then Had to do Maths level 2 seperate. Did not need to do English as the course content was enough for the Uni to see that English is understood etc.
Hope this helps... I know its been a while since you posted.
