Das Beste: I have just finished a course in Animal Care with UK Open College. Regardless of the 12 months learning period I have figured out how to finish all assignments in a little more than 5 months so I am to a great degree satisfied with myself. A major thank you to Brian for his stunning remarks and input all through my learning period. My coach was there to guide me in a very pleasant manner to put things right. The good thing is you can resubmit to enhance as and when it is expected to. I have already prescribed the school to my companion at work who is keen on doing a few courses.

  • Paper 3 7402/3 – 2 hour exam

  1. Use appropriate apparatus to record a range of quantitative measurements (to include mass, time, volume, temperature, length and pH)
  2. Use appropriate instrumentation to record quantitative measurements, such as colorimeter or polotemeter
  3. Use laboratory glassware apparatus for a variety of experimental techniques to include serial dilutions
  4. Use of a light microscope at high power and low power, including use of graticule
  5. Produce scientific drawing from observation with annotations
  6. Use qualitative reagents to identify biological molecules
  7. Separate biological compounds using thin layer/paper chromatography or electrophoresis
  8. Safely and ethically use organisms to measure plant or animal responses/ physiological functions
  9. Use microbial aseptic techniques, including the use of agar plates and broth
  10. Safely use instruments for dissection of an animal organ, or plant organ
  11. Use sampling techniques in fieldwork
  12. Use ICT such as computer modelling, or data logger to collect data, or use software to process data
