Level 3 Diploma in Computing and Information Systems Watch
I am going to be studying a level 3 diploma in computing & information systems in September at college and would like to know what this course is like from students who have already completed this course. How is this course assessed? Is it 100% coursework and if so could you show me examples of work so that I know what sort of things I'll be doing.
When I did it, it was 100% coursework, but now I heard they added 2 exams in it.

Hope this helps
Unit 1: Principles of Computer Science is an Exam
Unit 2: Fundamentals of Computer Systems is an Exam
Unit 3: Planning and Management of Computing Projects is an Controlled Assessment
Unit 4: Software Design and Development Project is an Controlled Assessment
Don't let this put you off, just letting you know it will be harder compared to the old BTECs.
Revision Guide - Pure revision content for Units 1 to 4
Workbook - Revision and practice questions for Units 1 to 4

Hope this helps. PLEASE NOTE: This information I have given is for BTEC Nationals Computing, not BTEC Nationals IT. Please check which you are doing before you take it on board.
