Rebecca Dalglish Access to Social Sciences & Humanities
I take the Access to Social Sciences and Humanities course and find it challenging but very rewarding. I find it more effective than A Levels and the teachers are helpful in ensuring you achieve the highest possible grade. It is giving me the necessary skills to be able to go to university, where I intend to study for a degree in sociology.
