Applied Science Level 3

BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Applied Science

Why should I study Applied Science?

The Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science is an excellent starting point for anyone who sees their future career in Science. It covers a wide range of topics across biology, chemistry and physics and will also allow you to acquire a high level of practical laboratory skills

What does the course involve?

The Extended Diploma in Applied Science comprises of 13 units of which 7 are mandatory.

The Mandatory units include:

Principles and Applications of Science I Practical Scientific Procedures and their Techniques
Science Investigation Skills Lab Techniques and their Application
Principles and Application of Science II Investigative Project
Contemporary Issues in Science  

There are 19 optional units available: - of which 4 would be studied, examples include:

Physiology of Human Body Systems Diseases and Infections
Biomedical Science Industrial Chemical Reactions
Material Science Medical Physics Applications

 

How will I be assessed?

BTEC Nationals are assessed using a combination of internal assessments, which are set and marked by teachers, and external assessments, which are set and marked by Pearson external examiners. Mandatory units 1,3,5,and 7 are assessed externally. The external assessment could be in the form of an examination where all learners take the same assessment at the same time, normally with a written outcome or set tasks where learners take the assessment during a defined window and demonstrate understanding through the completion of a vocational task. Each unit will be graded Unclassified (U) and will not be certificated, or Pass (P), Merit (M), Distinction (D) or Distinction* and the unit grades accumulated to give a final award of upto D*D*D*.   

What are my options after completion of the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Applied Science?

The course had been designed as a two-year, full-time course that meets the entry requirements for learners who want to progress to higher education courses in the applied science sector, such as biomedical science, analytical and forensic science, physical science; or take a general route for further study in the sector. Employability skills, such as team working, entrepreneurialism, and practical hands-on skills have been built into the design of the course.

What should I do to prepare for the course?

Learners need to be motivated to work consistently and independently to achieve the requirements of the qualifications. Learners need to understand the importance of meeting assignment deadlines, that all the work submitted for assessment must be their own.  A series of induction materials are available on BMAT STEM Academy 6th form page.
