BTEC Health And Social Care Level 3 Study Group 2020/2021

Hi guys

Welcome to the BTEC Health And Social Care Study Group

I thought I would set up a general study support group for all students taking BTEC Health And Social Care this year. This is a place to chat to other students about the subject, ask for help for any specific questions or to share any resources you've found that are super helpful!

Depending on what you all find most useful, we may link out to individual unit study groups. Let us know what you would find most useful, and we will try our best to set it up

@brainzistheword or @Hazelly is it possible to pin this thread, as there's an increase in the number of H&S care student needing support on TSR and I think it will a good idea to do it in one thread

what is an example of tiredness?


1) being anemic
2) lack of sleep
3) underlying health problems - can be any number of health problems cause it
4) over working
5) boredum
6) lack of excersing or to much of it to,
7) medications can cause tiredness
8) constant driving

And this from a qualified midwife ok as list is endless because there's so much that can actually cause tiredness which sometimes after investigation still can't say .

Just to let you know I moved this into our Health and Social care study group as I thought the question and answer could be helpful to others :smile:
Hope you don't mind the intervening of a Level 2 Student. Might slide in from time-to-time so excuse my presence...

That's okay! I did level 2 HSC too, how are you finding it?

Relatively pleasant. I'm re-taking GCSE English, so both are an opportunity to gain a foot-stance in the direction I want to pursue for my future so relatively, I have no concerns. I must ask though, was your course laid out in tasks for each topic?
Thinking of doing it next year is it hard? Tell me more.

im currently doing btec health and social level 3 alongisde 2 other a levels. It is a good chilling subject. It is not hard at all but make sure not to fall behind and keep up with it if your aiming for distinctions in the subject. I am enjoying it so far and considering to either go into that career or something to do with finance but if you enjoy it, i recommend it.

The fact that I barely see my teachers because our 6th form college has been split up due to COVID we’re in bubbles, but I’m kind of alright now I feel like I was just having a bad day that day. I felt like I was falling behind but I’m actually on track if not maybe even ahead. I just needed to make a schedule and write and plan everything ahead, thought planning and writing things down was overrated & a waste of time but it actually really helps! ❤️
