If you do any BTEC, you will have to make sure that you complete your coursework as soon a possible and hand it on time to the teacher. I suggest you adopt the same methods you used to revise for your GCSE's. As I have previously studied BTEC business studies, I suggest you focus on completing your coursework as well as making notes for your exams. Plus, your coursework will make-up most of your grades.

Hey, I've just started my 2nd year of Applied Science. Make sure you keep on top of your coursework from day one since it piles up really quickly. I wasn't very organised in the beginning and it had a big effect on my grades. I do the older version of Applied Science and we usually have 4 or 5 assignments per unit. The newer version of Applied Science is assessed through a mixture of exams and coursework so the number of assignments you do might differ. For the exam units all you can really do is listen to your teacher's advice and revise. As for the coursework units, start each assignment as soon as it's given to you. If you leave things too late you'll miss deadlines and that'll have an impact on your grades. I don't always feel the need to take notes as our teachers give us really good resources but you can if you think it'll help. A big part of the course is independent research and you'll need to reference all your sources. CTFM is a really good website for referencing and it'll do it all for you automatically so I'd recommend using it in your assignments.

I found that Applied Science wasn't a huge jump from GCSE in the beginning. They ease you into the Level 3 content. Look at the specification for each of your units and it'll tell you what you'll be studying. You can use the specification to find resources online to help you with your exams and coursework. I've never had to open an A Level textbook to find what I've needed.
