Unit 4 Health and Social Care External Assessment - Urgent advice/tips pleaseWatch
I study BTEC health and social care - it's the new syllabus so unit 4 is the external assessment. Part A is the research and Part B is the exam. There are two different articles. I chose the 'Gamechanger' pill for asthma patients.
We are doing Part A now and I have made notes of the secondary resources I have found, however, the information in other related articles have the same/similar information (of course).
Also, I have used citations from researchers, experts and patients as well as statistics. I just hope that I'm not doing anything wrong. If anyone has any useful and helpful advice/tips on how to do or improve research, please let me know as the notes are the biggest part when I will sit the exam.
This is my first time doing this type of assessment and I am very determined to achieve high points.
Also, I believe we need to have lines of enquiry. If anyone has any good examples on the topic of asthma, could you please also let me know? As I'm sort of struggling with that.
Thank you to anyone for any help. I'd very much appreciate it. (Sorry if anything wasn't clear enough)
I'm surprised someone actually replied because I couldn't find the message I posted hahaha.
Thank you very much for the advice either way . I hope both of us did well. I bet you smashed it and get the grade you deserve after all the hard work.
Have a fab day and good luck if you've any more exams.
Hi, im sitting the exam today and im soo scared. I guess the only thing to do is ensure that the 6 sides of notes are fully linked to the article (I chose asthma to!) my teacher advised us when answering questions always link back to the question as it will show that you have read and understood the question. For articles I have found that most are the same and I guess we have to just use them, but write it in a way where you can justify how well its been used. Sorry if this is no helpGood luck, hope we both smash it
Awwww bless you, Good luck for any other exams you have to! Btw how did you find the exam? Was it what you were expecting?
I remember my teacher reminding us that there might be a question asking for implications - there was!
Wbu, what did you think of it?
-divide your time between each question
-use your notes
-read questions properly
-don't write unnecessary information (can waste your time)
-also, don't get overwhelmed by how many pages they give you to write your answer
hope this helps and good luck!
Surprisingly it was not as bad as I thought. I found myself rushing the 2nd question but had more time to do the implications question! Lets hope the marks make up for it since the last question was worth 20marks😭
i’m choosing that one aswell (: i’m so stuck too, i just know we have too find websites that could be useful but i have no idea what i’m still doing aha. How’s it going for you?
i have no idea on what to do, at the moment everyone is just looking at websites with information to do with the article but i don’t actually know what to do in the notes either? have you started doing the 4 pages notes? and what do you mean the methods
Like methods is what research methods used questionnaires , interviews etc. And I think the notes you just write about the methods, why they did research and implication but I don’t understand what to do exactly
