I'm doing an Access to HE course by Distance Learning, and quite nervous about the exams. Are they harder than the assignments? How did you find them in comparison to the assignments?

I used DLC for my Access to HE Course. I was advised the topic areas to revise and the exams involved a series of questions.

Do the revision and you will perform well

Oh I see! We're the questions requiring a lot of detail or a word count?

I find the exams from my access hard.. we only had one exam for each subject by the end of the year.. so you have to revise all the content.. its hard to remember all of it.. plus we have to write an essay on the exam. Besides the exams, we have an essay (20%), and one report experiment (20%). The exam is worth 60% of the grade.

With DLC, the 6-credit Units which were 2500 words consisted of 2000 words of questions and a 500 word exam.

Other providers and exam boards may vary.
