I've just started this course and am terrified of falling behind. I Really enjoy the biology aspect of it but i am already finding the chem and physics aspect difficult - especially titrations and equations.

it seems that this course will move along swiftly and you need to be on top of your game - trouble is 6+ months of being out of education has not helped.

how are you all coping? have you found the seneca L3 applied science helpful?

well, i used seneca for my gcse science and i loved it, i didn't know they have btec applied science on there, so i will definitely be check it out... I went and checked it out, it look good so far.

And I would say its free, and its extra revision/practice so it wouldn't hurt to use, to revise i would use seneca, the specification, flash cards and practice questions, also always go through what you don't understand in class at home, and never EVER be afraid to ask the teacher a question.

Hi, I can totally understand I felt the same when I started a year back. But, as I focused and worked hard I started to know things and still, I am learning even though I am in year 13 now. I would advise you if you stay updated with your work and coursework then you'll achieve good grades and make sure you ask your teachers to make checklists for each internal unit. It will save your life. Let me know if you need any help. Working and focusing hard can lead you to have distinctions overall that's how I achieved by the end of year 12. For exam units there are different resources you'll find online on tes.com and use the book for revision and you can even buy a revision guide or workbook.
Thank you

It's so nice and reassuring to have a student on the course give advice so thank you for that. I will ask for the checklist for each internal unit as I feel like I have to push for this kind of thing, not sure if they will be accomodating with it but I will try.

Can I just ask what do you mean by the internal units? the ones they will be marking as opposed to the external?

thank you again so much

One thing I'm confused about is that I had all the specifications ready for unit 1 and we are doing unit 8 as well? I thought we would just cover each unit chronologically so that's confused me a bit.

Hi, That's really good to hear from you. Let me know for help. I will advise you that you should ask your teacher for a checklist for each unit. The internal units are where you only do course work and you'll get grades (D, M, P) based on your coursework and internal units don't involve exams. Whereas on the other hand, external units is where you'll learn exam content and by end of the year you'll do the exam; this doesn't involve coursework.

Thank You

Have you got Seneca and the BTEC revision book? I’ve found that they expect you to do your own research on most of it.

You still have time to go over it, be strict with yourself and use upcoming half term to catch up.

It is helpful but go by the spec of each unit on the pearson website as a checklist to break down what you're doing, organise folders for each subject with seperated in to the units. Make sure your select the 'extended diploma level 3' spec not the others.

Hi have you applied for uni yet? i was doing AS level last year but i failed so i move to BTEC applied science but I am worried that unis might prefer a level students over btec student. Do you think that is true?
