It is

Feeling okay yet nervous. All revision resources are made, now I'm just going over practice papers that are helping a lot to reconsolidate!
That's good! What kind of resources have you made?

I've mainly written out notes in a booklet form - it seems to help!

I did attempt to make flashcards and then mindmaps but it wasn't the best option. Although, I did choose to do this whilst studying for GCSEs :confused:

Ooo a booklet! That sounds pretty cool to be honest. I'm imagining colourful and maybe some pictures too? :gah:

Glad you've found out what works for you now. Surprising how things can change within a couple of years from GCSE to BTEC!

Yes, lots of colour and some pictures! However, my ability to draw is awful. So a few printed pictures instead

Surprisingly yep, I never expected to do health and social care so it was a bit of a 'diversion' to say the least haha.

I'm terrible at drawing too, but I love seeing other people's notes - printed pictures and all! I remember I once printed out pictures and traced them so my notes had the 'doodle'-type feel but I could tell what it was supposed to be

Oh really? What was your original plan?

I’ll see if I can take some photos of my notes, if you want? Although, they aren’t amazing! :lol:

I was doing applied science (biomedical), however, the course was definitely not right for me. So I decided to go down the healthcare route instead. It’s currently more interesting for me compared to applied science.

Would never refuse pictures of notes

Ah amazing! Do you find the courses are substantially different or still quite similar in the topics that are covered?

They are mega different, but in a good way. There is no chemistry or physics involved throughout the course, which I’m glad about as I was struggling a lot!

However, there is a whole unit of biology which I’m starting on the 13th of January (fingers crossed) and certainly looking forward too .

Hey! I hope this thread isn't old!

I'm in year 13 and I'm taking the wrong A Levels! I'm not sure whether to retake years 12 and 13 via a BTEC or do an art foundation year (bearing in mind that the university course that I want to get onto is VERY competitive).

Here's the thread. Advice will be appreciated! https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6763330

Hey there

Looks like you've got some really useful replies on there. Have you spoken to your current college to understand what they might be able to offer/accommodate?
