Moderation panic!-Is HBS2 the same layout as HBS1??

Post by jodipodi83 »

Hiya, I'm having a bit of a panic here...right I have taken 3 YEARS to do my Access course..yes that's not a typo :(
I did have a a lot going on throughout these years however, I lost a couple of people close to me, gave birth to a beautiful baby and moved house..but I have plodded on ...so I'm doing ok really and determined to complete!
Anyway, get to the point.....I will have finished 27 Level 3 credits this weekend and will have completed the required 30 by fri next week (because I have to so I will). Hopefully this gives my tutor some time to have these marked by 13th Sept as that's the 30 credit deadline.
What Im slightly worried about is the fact I will have from fri next week, so the 23rd August, to the middle of October to do the remaining 9 credits of HBS1 and the 9 credits of HBS2 :o .....can someone tell me if all of these credits are the same sort of layout as HBS1 has been up to now? (small TAQs rather than large essays) I have done Organisation of the Body and doing Coordination and Control at the minute, both of which I am finding a lot easier to tackle than the essays and such as in previous modules- I like the layout of HBS1 as the TAQs feel easier to deal with being just a couple of hundred words at a time- are the rest of HBS1 and HBS2 like this all the way through?? This will relieve my sense of panic if they are, I'm worried I wont have time to do all 18 credits by October.... :(

Hiya

they're in the same general format but more specialised in the subject matter but yes we've generally gone for that format. There's some short essays but not as long as the psych essays would be

I hope this helps

Thank you Robin, really feeling the pressure at the moment, you can probably tell by all the questions I'm asking lately :(
Are they generally the same as in around 6/7 TAQs? How long is a short essay?
Thanks a lot :)

Hiya

normally a short essay might be about 500 words, though there is one as long as 1000, most of the questions are more of the type you've encountered so far

I hope this helps
