I did health and social for the last 2 years and did combined science GCSE and got a 5/5 on exam (it was the foundation paper tho) is the exams kinda similar to GCSE, I want to do good at this course. Any tips and info appreciated.

I'm on the older version of the Applied Science course which doesn't have exams but I know people who have taken the newer version and it's not that bad. They split Unit 1 up into 3 separate 30 minute papers which makes it a little less overwhelming. As long as you revise and listen to your teacher's advise you should do well.

Yeah I also think that the exams are set out similar to GSCEs in the sense that some questions are multi choice etc and then only a few longer worded questions that require more thought.

its not very hard just use the book and revision guide and do past papers you will be able to get a good grade its easier than a gcse science paper.I got a merit and i only studied for 2 weeks before the exam.

I did the higher paper for gcse combine science and had a 5-6 and I had found the unit exam for btech applied science a lot easier than that .Unit 3 is hard but unit 1 is easy if you actually revise for it.No problem I advise you to not let all the revision for the last minute ,just revise a little bit very now and then and you will be fine .
