    The work itself isn't hard in terms of difficulty, but there are constant deadlines for multiple assignments at the same time which can be difficult to keep up with.
    Im not sure about other subjects but exams has been introduced in this years spec for health and social care.

    I agree. The work isn't difficult if you know what you're doing, but the deadlines certainly keep you on your toes

    In terms of difficulty, I don't find the work very challenging, but then again I am one of the top students in my class. There are people who are struggling to get MPP and then there are those of us who can easily achieve DMM with our eyes closed. So I do think it depends on the person.

    However, what I do find challenging is balancing multiple assignments and deadlines at a time. I sometimes get a merit in units I could have gotten a distinction in but didn't because I didn't prioritise it or manage my workload properly.
