hi! i’m going to be starting a level 3 course in applied science in september, and i’m currently in the process of deciding how i’m gonna manage my notes and work and what stationary to buy. On my last year on a different course i found it quite hard carrying folders and having everything in folders, so i did end up switching to taking notes on a laptop instead and saving everything digitally. for health and social care, this was easy to do as the whole thing is quite written, it’s mainly typing reports up assignment wise but i know science likely won’t be the same. if anybody has done or is doing applied science currently, is it better to hand write notes or type notes up? and is it going to be useful for me to buy folders and all of that kinda stuff. Do i need the textbooks to score high grades? what types of tasks are you given for your assignments, is my main question, as last year all i did was write essays and reports. any other random info that anybody thinks a student starting in september would need to know about studying science at btec would be appreciated!

Ive completed my first year of level 3 applied science & I hand wrote my notes and then completed my assignments digitally. My course was all coursework so I enjoyed hand writing my notes before completing the assignments . For things like practicals etc they are all hand written . It all depends on what works best for you really . I had one ring binder that I carried in my bag and then one big folder at home that I would organise each assignment into . In terms of stationary the usual , notebooks , pens etc . I would recommend borrowing the level 3 Btec applied science book from your college library if you can . The book has most of the information you’ll need for assignments.
