Finished at last!!

I have finally finished the HBS1 course, just a long wait till I get my results now! Thanks for all the advice and help, this forum is great for checking you've got the basics right. For any newbies, I'd say don't be shy about asking questions - I left it a bit late and struggled on my own for quite...

Re: Unit 12 TAQ 5 - control of infectious diseases

So I'm not going to be the only mother hen then? I didn't really think about that till recently, when my daughter said "oh great, we can be Uni buddies together!" (I know she was joking, esp as her uni is 3 hrs from home so she'll be moving away!) but still .... How exciting tho' - some of...

Re: Unit 12 TAQ 5 - control of infectious diseases

yes, I'm really lucky as I only had to do HBS ! to do to get my place confirmed. it's been a struggle but have really enjoyed it and I think the discipline will be good for studying at Uni. Re your essay - why don't you just track your progress through the course as a good example? :)) I feel as tho...

Re: Unit 12 TAQ 5 - control of infectious diseases

Oh thank you! I am feeling a bit better now - its just such a broad topic and most of the other stuff I've done has been so "micro" if you know what I mean. Will crack on now, thanks for the boost! What essay do you still have to do?

Unit 12 TAQ 5 - control of infectious diseases

Hi, think I am getting battle weary. I know this should be straightforward (compared with other TAQs) but I'm getting myself all tied up with it. If you've done this one already, what did you cover? I've started looking at global issues and international co-operation, but I've a feeling I should rea...

Unit 9 TAQ3 - respiratory disorders

Can I ask how much information should be in here - is it just a summary to show how we understand how these disorders stop the respiratory system from functioning properly, or do we need to put in detailed information? I could spend days on this, but not sure this is a good use of my time. would it ...

Re: HBS 1 Unit 8

LOL - good to know I'm not the only one who's taking ages, and that I'm not just being stupid! I think part of the problem is that I find it all really interesting, and end up reading too much and writing too little! xx

Re: HBS 1 Unit 8

wow, that must feel good! No, I only need to pass Bio 1 to secure my place..... gave up my job with only a week's notice (my poor boss was so shocked!) so that I can spend the next 3 weeks getting through this. I've read some of the posts on the forum saying they did Bio 1 in 2 weeks - I just can't ...

Re: HBS 1 Unit 8

oh God, I don't even know what you mean??? I'm only doing Bio ! so I guess that will be it! My tutor only told me about the exam a couple of weeks ago - I think its been difficult to get to grip with this whole system when you're only dipping into a bit of it - I find things out by asking specific q...

Re: HBS 1 Unit 8

Hi, There is no such thing as too much info in the level 3 assessments. Thats what I was always told. I always did loads of diagrams, even if they were not needed. Good luck xx:) Thanks for that! It's just tricky getting the balance right - I hear that June moderation clock ticking, and don't have ...

HBS 1 Unit 8

Hi, I am really struggling with this one! I've done the diagrams and functions of the major organs, and have moved on to the second question and have got stuck. Does the gut wall refer to the whole digestive tract, or is it the stomach? When the question says "detail how the gut wall changes fo...
