Basically, I skipped A levels and went right into Bsc Economics & Finance. I'm graduating this year and am planning to take a second degree in EEE because I don't like my current degree. I choose EEE because I have passion in science and technology, and working in the tech sector is something that I've always wanted. I was an idiot for letting my parents pick a degree for me because I was indecisive and immature, but at least I've developed a good work ethic along the way. It seems my application was accepted and I was given the option to jump right to Year 2, out of the four-year degree. However, the head of faculty wanted to interview me given my lack of scientific background. I've done some relevant Math topics like calculus, advanced linear algebra, etc. in my current degree and have done moderately well (second upper), but my foundations in science is very shaky. Skipping a year allows me to progress faster, saving time and money. However, I've heard that EEE is notoriously difficult (from a straight-A classmate who dropped out of EEE after 2 years because he couldn't cope), so I'm considering taking the first year just to be safe. For those familiar with the degree, what do you guys think I should do? What did you do in Year 1 and how difficult was it?
