Here is just a page for people to put their worries and questions on here as have started as this year.
A lot of people have worries and problems so wanted this as out there for people to see and comment on their own opinions.
Personally just about to start Unit 1 and everything seems fine with tutors responding in normal time and the interface has been easy and good.

I have made some connections on there as well to talk to other people doing the same course.
I checked with the HE website to check on this course and it accredited and Universities (at least in the North West Area)  Have accepted Doctors and alike using this course when I asked
Hope everyone else enjoys their time!

Hi both! I have started this not long ago and I am just finishing assingment 6. I wanted to see if there was anywhere online that students can actually talk to each other. Is this what people use or is there a facebook group or anything?

You must be tanning the assignments then ! I recently changed internet provider and it's completely slowed me down actually so just finished assignment 5 actually. As far as I am aware there isn't as people get other commitments and trail off and you only seem to find a small group that carry on with it ! 
I have Sarah on my connections though on the Pearl web page and keep up to date with her on that really :)

Sure, what questions on unit 2? because q1 and q2 are smooth sailing as you are bound to know what your strengths and weaknesses are then just relate that to a theory in q2. For q3 is really personal and you shouldnt be afraid to write down what you do for yourself to keep going, strengths vs weaknesses and how you handle them and any problems you can forsee, this can be something has had happened before or something that tou anticipate based on what students generally deal with (timing issues) and how would you personally solve that. For question 4 i would recommend using kolbs learning cycle as stated on the guidance and finding one other theory to discuss, keep it simple. What is the inherent premise of the theory? How does it compare with Kolbs? How is it the same? How is it different? Which one do you like better? Why?

Hi Nechama, 
I am currently on Unit 5 and find that i'm not sticking to each section but interlinking them unintentionally. How did you find Unit 5? any ideas on how you set yours out to not randomly change from one section to the other or does that not matter?

Hi Natasha. 
Personally for me i didnt change the sections i just changed the parts of each section  around to make it flow better. for example, for section one i first wrote about common characteristics of cells, then wrote about prokaryotic, then wrote up all on Eukaryotas AND THEN compared and contrasted the two. 

from there on the sections all then flow well, it is just the first that needs a little moving around.

I hope that helps you. If not message me again and we will work it out. 

Have a great day
Nechama

Oh, and on the part of interlinking them, i headed each part of my essay according to what that paragraph was about: i.e common characteristics of living cells..then wrote about that, then made a new heading prokaryotic cells and wrote about that etc etc, along the way i would find myself adding in maybe one to two lines linking ideas up from previous paragraphs, but i would really say stick to how the assignment material is giving you in terms of layout , and try not to interlink too much as it will take up too much word limits.
