    Hello. Does anyone have any examples of essays that are pass, merit and distinction for an access course, preferably in a humanities subject if possible but any would be helpful. Thank you!

    Hey!

    I am in the same boat as you. I am starting an access to social science humanities this september. And I just like you, would like some imput on how to gain those top marks from essays.

    Firstly, don't stress. The sort of person who makes the effort of looking to improve themselves by finding advice to get top marks will do fine on an access course. I posted an advice guide here.

    I just completed access to health and social care, we covered biology (I did one essay in this as it was mainly exams and posters), psychology and sociology, there were 45 credits and I gained 42 credits at distinction and 3 at merit. I'm happy to share some with you if you PM your email address.

    I would advise you get acquainted with doing PEE statements point, evidence, explain! http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks3/en...er/revision/6/

    getting used to connective words such as furthermore, however, moreover, in contrast is a good idea too!

    try not to stress too much about referencing, it may seem daunting at first but you will get used to it!

    I've just completed access and honestly, you don't need to have all this information before you start. The course is designed to help mature students adapt back into education, and they give you all the information you need to gain your top grades. I qualified with full distinctions and my tutor and teachers helped all the way. Just tell them that you are aiming for high results and I'm sure they'll get you there. It's a fab course, go for it and enjoy!
