The new spec has exams and coursework
The new spec exams are rock hard. No one got higher than a pass in the exam at my school and our school was one of the schools which received ‘the best results’ (I know a lot of people failed). I find the exams harder than both of my other actual A level subjects.
unit 1 is basic chemistry .physic and biology like the first bits fo AS .unit 3 is practials that are send by the exam board and you have 2 week to complete them and write about them
How do you find applied science? Like do you enjoy it ? What’s the hardest things and the things you enjoy the most? And what sort of exams do they have now?
The hardest part of the course is some of the distinction tasks in Physics because physics is my weakest science. Apart from that, nothing else is hard on the course.
At my college, we are only doing 3 units at a time, so before this Christmas, we would have completed half of our Subsidiary diploma.
Also, my course doesn't have any exams because it is the old spec which 100% coursework based.
