Course Description

Applied Sciences Course Outline The qualification consists of these units. Six core units: Unit 1: Fundamentals of science Unit 2: Working in the science industry Unit 3: Scientific investigation Unit 4: Scientific practical techniques Unit 5: Perceptions of science Unit 6/8: Application of number and statistics Twelve units selected from these: Unit 10: Using science in the workplace Unit 11: Physiology of human body systems Unit 12: Physiology of human regulation & reproduction Unit 13: Biochemical techniques Unit 14: Energy changes, sources and applications Unit 16: Chemistry for Biology technicians Unit 17: Electrical circuits & their industrial applications Unit 18: Genetics and genetic engineering Unit 20: Medical physics techniques Unit 22: Chemical laboratory techniques Unit 23: Science for environmental technicians Unit 25: Electronics for science technicians Unit 26: Industrial applications of chemical reactions Unit 28: Industrial applications of Organic Chemistry Assessment Coursework (100% - as all units are portfolio based) No Examination Examining Board - BTEC. This 18 unit qualification is the equivalent of three full A Levels. Grades are awarded from AAA to EEE and carry the normal number of UCAS points for university entry. Prohibited Options None. Career and Progression Opportunities The qualification supports entry into a very wide range of degree courses based on biology and biochemistry (but not medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or physics) as well as areas such as the computer industry and business. Other Information To support the more mathematical aspects of some of the units there is an additional qualification taught alongside the course, assessed by both portfolio and examination.
