    I'd be aiming for a Distinction* in the subject and doing it alongside Maths and Further Maths.

    I know that the whole 2 years is worth 60 credits, but not much more about this btec. I've done a year of AS level Physics. I'm asking because I want to know how much physics there is compared to the a level and also generally the level of difficulty. And also how the btec assessed?

    Thanks for reading I appreciate it.

    Assuming you do all the work? A long time.
    assuming you don't? About a month

    Hmm well i got a Distinction* overall from the first year (ive just finished the second).
    And if you do all of the work on time, realistically you could be done within a month or two, seriously!
    But because its so spread out it will take the full accademic year to complete!

    I didnt do A-Levels but i know there was a lot of Maths/Physics in this.
    Its fairly easy overall. Some of the maths was a bit tricky, but then we werent taught it.
    And its assesed by varioue assignments throughout the year, thats whst could be done in a month, all of the assignments.
    Theyre easy to do but are a little long winded at times.
