I personally really enjoy it, mainly because I simply find biology/patient care interesting. It's a lot of effort though, which is draining - there is SO MUCH COURSEWORK.

I completed my Health and Social Care GCSE last year, and I really enjoyed it. So much so that I have gone on to complete another qualification in health and social care. However, this doesn't mean it is for everyone. As 02grl said, there is a lot of coursework so if this is not for you then you may not enjoy the course as much. It also means that you will need to put more effort into the subject so that you can achieve the grades you want in both the coursework and exams. The course material, depends on the unit your school will be completing but I defiantly enjoyed the units I got taught and I think they are the main units. I believe at my school nobody has disliked health and social care as in the course.
I hope this helps

What units did you do for Health and Social? It's hard to find actual help for the course on here so it's super cool that you've taken such interest in it!

Are you talking to me? haha If so I took 'Understanding Personal Development and Relations' and 'Exploring Health, Social care and Early Years Provision'. I throughly enjoyed both of them and am now studying a BTEC in the subject
