Within the btec applied science with an extended diploma course, how is the unit 7 article meant to be analysed accurately? And what key features are you looking for in the text

You should look at the mark scheme and the past paper. So when reading the articles look for what they are trying to get across. This would be the scientific implication. Look for how they have written it out. Have they included references to support their evidence. What organisations are they stating, look into those organisations are they bias organisations or reliable? Also the individuals stated, search them up and find out how they influence the scientific implications. Look for further developments of the articles. How they can be improved such as including more methodology to support their hypothesis and results. When reading the articles i suggest you act like you are reading it to another and trying to get them to understand. When you do it like this it then helps you understand more. Also look up certain scientific words in the articles if you don't understand what they mean. Last but not least, when you've got your articles make sure you research about the topic and get a general understanding before moving onto your articles. This will make reading the articles more easier as you've got background knowledge. Good Luck.

From my experience not really because a lot of people failed it but they got a near pass mark which is not classed as a fail and still got their diploma. So I don’t think its anything to worry about.

My advice for Unit 7 utilises the articles. For question one pick as many positive and negative implications as you can across all THREE articles.Q2 pick one or two individuals or organisations from each article and talk about who they will influence, who are they and who is their audience.Q3 DIscuss if valid judgements are made from each article. I wouldn't half-arse it just in case they ask for a single article.Q4 is very simple just draw research developments from each issue.Q5 I'm winging it. like this one you still have to utilize the articles to draw conclusions.read the specimen mark scheme and look for key things that can be applied to any issue.This is just my guess not confident in my guess but will help me get a Merit at least. Used this strategy in my Mock and came out with 18/20 would have for full marks if I wrote my name on that extra paper. The mock was half of the exam anyway but treated it as the real thing where is like triple the marks?

Yes, its true. Units 1 to 7, are considered mandatory and are considered as external examinations, so if you don't gain a pass or higher for these units, you will fail your entire grade. You can work this out by using the online BTEC grade calculator - Use the link below to calculate your grade(s) for btechttps://qualifications.pearson.com/content/dam/pdf/Support/Understanding marks and grades/BTEC_Nationals_2016_2018_Grade_C alculator_2018_2019_v3.xlsm

No problem. Question 1 I haven't noticed any clear economic reasons besides the fact of cheapness on the prep/
It wouldn't hurt doing question 3 on all articles just in case. All my tutors fully say do all the articles in case they do a sly one you. Better not risk it I say. Up to you really.

The last question I could have structured it a but better.

Nice. I think I got a merit on the exam. Idk how it went but I think it ok. Hopefully as long as I get distinction in my assignment and merits in the exams then I should get D*DD. although a small chance it could be D*D*D
