Hey everyone,

I am in Year 12 and I'm thinking of taking the level 3 extended diploma in Health and Social Care next year as I want to study Child Nursing at university (hopefully Keele).

However, I was wondering how difficult the course is to get grades like D*DD or DDM or DMM?


Thanks

It isn't that difficult. It is all coursework, and there is lots of information in textbooks and on the internet to use in your coursework (you have to put the information in your own words). Just make sure you don't fall behind as once you fall behind you find it much more difficult to catch up. But other than that, it's pretty easy (in my experience) and you should be fine. Also, on health and social care btec's they usually do placements in health and social care settings to give you experience for things like Uni

I'm currently in my last year of doing this course and have a place at keele for nursing, they only need a DDM.
It is very easily done to get the grades you need as long as you keep on top of the coursework, a couple in my class are expected to get a D*DD.
However if you do fall behind in the first few months, as most do including myself, it is possible to catch up and get the grades.
The placements have been invaluable, especially the ones at nursery's.
