Btec Health And Social Care Level 3 Assignments

 
  1. Hello TSR :)
    I am planning on doing a BTEC level 3 extended certificate in health and social care when i finish my GCSEs. Basically I would just like to know information about the course, is it difficult? I am hard-working and know i would get the coursework done. Is DDD or DDM hard to achieve as that is what i need to get into uni? Are the student textbooks any good? do they help reach the top grades?

    Please reply, any info on the course would be appreciated.


    Thanks! :D


  2. I'm just finishing up on my BTEC Extended Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care, so I can give you some advice

    You're going to be given 18 modules to study, and you're expected to write assignments based on the modules. For each criteria in the assignments, you're going to be basically given a question which you will have to answer. The textbooks are really helpful, but I wouldn't recommend you use them if you want to achieve merits or distinctions. You would be expected to do your own research from the internet/different books and use different sources if you want to aim for merits and distinctions. If you know how to manage your time well and are organised, then I wouldn't say it's going to be difficult for you. You'd have to be willing to put in the time and effort to complete all your coursework and meet deadlines, because you're only going to be given about 2 submissions for each assignment (depending on your college). If you're a hard worker, then I'm sure you will do just fine

    DDM/DDD will only be hard to achieve if you do the bare minimum and basically just get all passes and little/no merits or distinctions. If you work hard from day 1 and get as many merits and distinctions as you can, then it will definitely be easily to achieve DDM/DDD or even D*D*D* which is even better. You will also go on placements (we had 3 different placements a year, but it depends on your college) - however some colleges don't offer placements and this may affect your application if you're thinking of applying to university. What I'd suggest is you organize your own work experience in health or social care settings - try to get as many as you can because it will make you stand out from other A Level students.

    One advice I would give you is to not spend too much time socializing (which a lot of people on my course have done) because you're going to regret it in your second year.

    Good luck!

  3. Thank-you so much, your reply has helped me immensely! I am really looking forward to starting now I have one more question, did you have to do alot of presentations?

Но запах шел не оттуда, его источник находился где-то поблизости. Сьюзан посмотрела на решетчатую дверь, ведущую в кухню, и в тот же миг поняла, что означает этот запах.

Запах одеколона и пота.
