Well Level 3 is certainly step up in difficulty.
You do indeed need to spend the full 16 hours per week on study, not like level 1 or 2, where I found that 6-8 hours would get you through.
The material is similar to level 2, but there is a lot more of it.
plus the TMA's now need to have outside materials brought into them, so after 4 years of 'stick to the module materials, Michael', it now becomes 'where are your outside influences, Michael'
It also seems to be a much quicker launch through the material, in order to leave the required 8 weeks at the end to do the EMA.
Oh well, best crack on then.
