Hi, I've applied to start an access to HE diploma in science this September. Has anyone done access to Science? What was it like? What type of background reading would be useful before the start?

Thanks

Hi there,

I didn't do access to science but I did do access to engineering which shared a lot of similar units.

Things I would brush up on are;
Basic maths (addition, subtraction, division, algebra)
Biology (Cellular mitosis, osmosis, respertory system, nervous system etc)
Chemistry (basic reactions and how the periodic table will help immensely)
Physics (re-familiarise yourself with netowns laws of motion and the basics of electricity)

I'm currently studying Access to Science that I started in January, so we're already halfway through the course (currently sitting on 24/24 credits at Distinction)

Some of the modules that we've covered:

Biology: Nutrition, Digestion and Excretion, Genetics (DNA Replication, Mitosis, Meiosis, Monohybrid/Dihybrid crosses), Skeletal structure/system, Cardiovascular system/structure, Respiratory system, Infectious disease.

Chemistry: Moles of substances, Atomic Structures, Bonding - Ionic, Covalent, Metallic, and Crystal Structures, Periodic table, Oxidation and Reduction.

Physics: Physical quantities and forces, Properties of matter.

Maths: Algebra, Logarithms and Functions, Polynomials, Probability, Statistics.

You should e-mail or ring your college and ask for the list of units that your Access to Science course covers a lot of them are structured differently. Invest in AS and A2 revision books as they have helped me tremendously since I started, and take advantage of the library at your college.

Thanks so much. I'll definitely look into those subjects. Best of luck in your Access to Engineering course.

Thanks Kaeden, this is very helpful and I'll be looking at these. I will email my college about which units they are doing and I'll get a few AS and A2 revision guides.

Well done on your achievement so far and all the best for the future!

Kind regards, Linda
