Hi everyone!
I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me a little bit about the course? I am due to start next month but switched from health to science so don't know a great deal about the ratio of bio:chem:physics:maths/ how it's assessed/ the intensity/ if I should be doing any prep? TIA!

Normally you only do 3 out of Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics in which you may do 7 Units, 6 and 6 which are 3 credits each and 1 reseach unit in 1 of the 3 chosen subjects which is another 3 credits. Its usually assessed by assignments and alot of them, also presentations and tests aswell sometimes. Start doing prep as soons as possible starting from basic GCSE level and working up, yes when you start the course most of it you may have already learned but this works in your favour. All colleges are different though.

How long ago was this? I finished mine last year and did Biology, Additional biology, Physics and sociolgy for a total of 15 units at level 3 and study skills, english and maths at level 2. This seems to be the standard considering every degree's entry requirements require the 15 units? If you want to prep begin by practising your grammar and punctuation as well as citating and referencing, shouldn't take too long but if you want distinctions it needs to be flawless. Good luck!

My science course was as follows:

Biology - 18 credits, 3 of which are not graded.
Chemistry - 18 credits, 3 of which are not graded.
Maths - 9 credits.
Physics - 9 credits, 3 of which are not graded.
Independent study - 6 credits.

Basically, 45 credits that count with your uni application. The study and ungraded credits were pass or fail.

All of the subject modules consisted of coursework that was a report or essay and usually a small test. The maths had no coursework and was tested at the end of each module.

The course was manageable, but due to the structure, it was not uncommon to be in the process of writing three reports whilst swotting for the tests whilst doing work on the independent study. It is certainly good practice for university.
