You will find two topics: Products from crude oil and also Alkenes. Click on these to find the videos that you are looking for. I just want to know what grades people have been getting by watching your videos only as they very helpful and helped me a lot with my mock exams, the only thing i have been revising on is with your videos and past papers, can i still pass the exam? I found these videos very useful but can I ask when will chemistry unit 3 videos come out? Hi can you do revision videos on how to analyse data in the exams.

This was seriously useful, thank you. It was recommended to me by a friend and I went on to recommend it to my friends. I ended up with an A and B in my chemistry unit 1 and 2 mocks and chemistry is my worst subject, so the videos proved really helpful. Thanks, I really appreciate your comment. I always like to know when people find the videos useful.

Good luck with your exams in June and keep watching. The videos are so quick and to the point. It only took me about 3 days to cover the whole of biology. Best website I have found so far.

I hope that you find the other videos useful as well and good luck in your exams. All the other videos work perfectly fine. Just this one video seems to have a problem. This should be up by the middle to end of the week, so if you could continue watching the remaining videos and then come back to it, that would be great. Keep up the good work! Hi, I really really struggle with chemistry unit 3 and am wondering when the videos will be out since they are very useful for my understanding.

Thankyou the videos are very helpful. Hi and thanks for the comments. I am planning on making the Chemistry Unit 3 videos very soon so watch out for them.

Hello there, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you dearly for all the efforts and time creating this wonderful website that has helped me hugely so far. I will be using your website for revision for the rest of the time I have left for my exams. To just to let you know that I have tried and experienced using other revision websites but none were most beneficial as yours. So I again, thank you so much. It will be such a life saver if you do so.

Thank you again for everything. Thank you very much for the comments. I am planning to make videos for A level Biology and Chemistry so watch out for them later in Good luck with your GCSEs and keep watching the videos.

These videos are excellent. An exceptional effort and this one of the reasons why the Internet is turning into such a great source for learning. Thank you very much sir and your videos are proving extremely helpful for my revision! You explain everything extremely clearly and it is easy to understand. Thanks for the comments. Keep watching and good luck in your exams.

Hello,im a student currently in year 10 and your videos have helped me tons in my physics and and my chemistry lately, but unfortunately there is no match for my biology syllabus for Eg chapters such as Coordination and Blood and circulation. I would hugely appreciate i there would be an update of bio syllabus. Thank You so much for ur help and great videos and please keep up the awesome videos coming.

Looking forward to the rest of the biology syllabus. You have been a god send for me! The science department at my school is okay but not the best. Your videos break down the topics perfectly and have helped me understand them more. I always love to hear from viewers who find the videos helpful. Keep watching and I hope that you continue finding that they help and good luck in your exams.

Hi, In your video you mentioned that there are worksheet exercises available on this website. Would you please tell me where i could find them. I hope to be releasing some of these fairly soon but in the meantime, I would suggest that you go to AQA. This will give you good exam practise. Cheer, this is so helpful and makes revision so much easier for my exams.

I hope that you continue watching and tell all your friends. Due to some problems I missed 2 whole years of high school and I came back in yr 11 few months now from my mocks and final exams and I know nothing about science only the things I had learnt in yr 7 and 8. I used to depress over my science grades but since I found this website it has been so helpful iv caught up with almost all the topics I missed and I am pretty confident I will do well in my exams, hopefully!

Also, you should download all the past exam papers from aqa. If you do them and then mark them the markschemes are also on there then that will also help you as the same types of questions come up all the time.

And good luck in your exams. Have no words to say… the videos are phenomenal and amazing. I feel so much more confident in science. Are you planning on making a unit 1 and 3 on biology? Also will A-Level clips on biology be available next year? Thank you very much! I always like to hear from people who find the videos helpful.

And I will definitely be making videos on A level Biology as well. Good luck in your exams. Thanks for your message.

I hope that your friends also find them useful and best of luck in your exams. Then you can download unit 3 papers from the exam board aqa. Physics 1 is now being added. A couple of videos are now on and the remained will be added over the next few weeks. Biology 1 will be added between Easter and the exams in June. Hello there, I was just wondering if you are able to upload any worksheets before the exams? We have not been able to cover them properly class so could you do any videos for them.

Hey there I have my unit two additional science exam next month, can you give me tips to achieve an A and should I make notes on all of your videos too? Watch all the videos on a subject eg Biology 2 and make notes some students prefer to just watch them. Then do all the past papers from AQA. Carefully mark them you can get the grade boundaries here: In the plant cell, the permanent vacuole is full of dissolved chemicals such as various salts etc ie the cell sap.

But the key feature is that it is packed with water. This means that the vacuole is applying pressure against the rest of the cell contents. This is resisted by the cellulose cell wall and this makes the cell turgid ie full of water and firm.

This is part of what gives a plant its support. I hope that that has answered your question. Sorry it has taken me a while to reply. Firstly, make a list of the topics that you feel least confident with because these are the ones that you have to revise first. On one side you should ask a question eg outline the stages of natural selection and on the reverse, you write the answer. The actual act of making these cards is good revision in itself.

Then you have to spend plenty of time going through those cards until you can answer them. Carry them around and if you have a few minutes, practise. Get your friends and relatives to test you. But you should also find time for the past-papers since the same types of questions frequently come up. Thank you so much for creating these videos. I used to hate physics because I never used to understand it but now I love it. You make everything so simple and I am able to easily understand all topics.

I was wondering how many of the triple videos will be completed before our triple exams since the are one of the first science exams we have.

It would be so great if you could complete them before our exams but I know it takes a long time to create the videos so I know it may take some time. You have helped so many people. Thank you very much for making these videos. They are excellent, very detailed and contain all the information we need for the exams.

I really am both grateful and jealous of your students who are probably finding science extremely easy because of your amazing teaching. I am sure they will all get perfect results. My students are like all students, so some are really good but some need more help. They do like Science though. I teach in a school in Manchester.

Hi thankyou for the videos they have really helped. I was just wondering for chemistry unit 2 are there any videos on paper and gas chromatography x. I would just like to say that you are literally an angel sent from above: Thanks for the comment, which made me laugh.

I decided that students would benefit more from having all the videos they needed rather than a smaller number but with worksheets. So I decided to focus on making the videos. There are lots on the AQA website http: Carefully mark them and that will tell you what the examiners are looking for. At the moment, all of unit 2 are on and half of unit 1 all of Chem and half of Physics. Hello- I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating these videos- they are so easy to understand and are very informative.

Your videos have really helped me gain a better understanding of all three sciences and I really appreciate you making them so accessible for students without having to pay. I just had to comment on your website because I find your videos have really made a difference to me. Thank you once again for all your work, you have helped me immensely. I hope that you continue to find the videos useful and best of luck in your exams. I wanted to ask you a serious questions since you have had a lot of experience with teaching and exams.

Thanks for the comment. Once official transfer credit evaluation is completed, students are responsible for reviewing their degree progress reports and notifying their Academic Advisors of any perceived discrepancies between credits completed and credits applied in transfer. Degree-seeking students should work with their Academic Advisor to determine if coursework will fit into their academic plan and not duplicate previous credit awarded.

A student may not take Ashford University coursework in an area in which he or she has already completed a course that is more advanced in content level. Students requesting re-evaluation of specific transfer credits will be directed to the Transfer Credit Appeal form in the Student Portal at www.

Transfer credits will be officially evaluated, based on review of official transcripts by the Office of the Registrar, in terms of curriculum. Courses similar in content and level will be accepted as equivalents to University courses based on the following criteria along with any program specific criteria:.

Nationally accredited institutions granted accreditation by the following accrediting agencies will be considered in transfer:. Credits from any institutions with whom Ashford University has current articulation agreements will be considered for transfer. Nontraditional credits can be awarded in three ways: National testing programs include AP: Thomas Edison College Examination Program. National credit recommendations include ACE: National College Credit Recommendation Service.

Please review the Nontraditional Credit Provisions and Limitations sections for additional information regarding nontraditional credits. Credit will only be awarded in areas that fall within the regular curricular offerings at Ashford University. Through Sponsored Professional Training: Students may participate in the Sponsored Professional Training component of PLA by providing the following documentation:.

Ashford University faculty will evaluate the submission of Sponsored Professional Training for evidence of college-level learning.

Applicable fees for evaluation of Sponsored Professional Training are listed in the Financial Information section of this Catalog. Payment for evaluation is charged per credit submitted for evaluation and does not guarantee that credit will be awarded. PLA credit cannot be awarded for a course previously taken with the University when a failing grade was received. Students may participate in the experiential learning component by first enrolling in the experiential learning course, EXP Fundamentals of Adult Learning.

EXP is a 3-credit elective course, and per-credit tuition is charged at the regular rate outlined in the current tuition and fee schedule in the Financial Information section of this Catalog. Upon successful completion of EXP , students may submit one or more experiential essays for review. Additional charges apply per evaluation submitted, as outlined in the tuition and fee schedule in the Financial Information section of this Catalog. Payment for evaluation is charged per essay submitted for evaluation and does not guarantee that credit will be awarded.

Students may participate in one or both PLA components depending on their experience, background, and need. Prior Learning Assessment credit awarded at another regionally or approved nationally accredited institution may be transferred to Ashford University with the approval of the Ashford University Registrar and the Department of Prior Learning Assessment, if the content area falls within the regular curricular offerings of Ashford University.

Students may also be required to submit the original PLA documentation. Such transfer credit counts toward the nontraditional credit maximum applicable in a degree program. It does not apply to students pursuing a graduate degree or non-degree seeking students. To be eligible for PLA, undergraduate students must be fully admitted, satisfy the English Proficiency requirement, and successfully complete their first course at Ashford.

Students who have formally completed the PLA process but disagree with the final credit decision may be eligible to appeal. Please contact the Department of Prior Learning Assessment to discuss the appeal process.

Please read the Nontraditional Credit Provisions and Limitations for more information in this section of the Catalog. Students should wait until all previous post-secondary coursework has been reviewed and then contact their Academic Advisor to determine if there is a need for the exam to be reviewed for college credit.

Ashford University enters into articulation agreements with other schools in the spirit of cooperation and to mutually recognize each other as quality institutions of higher learning. The purpose of an articulation agreement is to enable students transferring to Ashford University to carry with them the credit they have already earned for as much relevant study as possible.

Students who transfer under the terms and conditions of a valid articulation agreement are subject to the requirements outlined by the articulation agreement and Ashford University Academic Catalog at the time the student is enrolled into his or her Ashford University program. Students who have earned graduate-level course credits prior to matriculation at Ashford University may be eligible to transfer up to nine 9 credits toward an Ashford University graduate-level degree.

Additional credits may be accepted when offered under an agreement approved by Ashford University up to a maximum of 15 credits. The outcomes of all transfer credit evaluations completed are communicated to students along with the resulting shortened program of study, where applicable, as shown in their Student Portal. Graduate-level college credits completed are acceptable for transfer under the following conditions, unless offered in an approved program or under an agreement approved by Ashford University:.

Students who are requesting a program change must submit a new application required for the new program of study. Students must meet admission requirements and complete all degree requirements in effect for the program of study at the time of admission to the new program.

Admission is not guaranteed. The University will determine the conditions under which the student may enroll and will convey those conditions to the student. Any changes to a program may result in removal of an approved transfer concentration, specialization, or minor. Students using Military Tuition Assistance to fund their education must obtain permission from the Education Services Officer to change their program.

When permission is obtained and the request is processed, an updated military degree plan will be reissued by the Office of the Registrar within 60 days.

This process is to ensure that the University has current demographic information for each student. Students must meet admission requirements and complete all degree requirements in effect for the program of study at the time of readmission. Readmission is not guaranteed.

If readmission is granted, the University will determine the conditions under which the student may re-enroll and will convey those conditions to the student. Any member of the United States armed forces, spouse of an Active Duty, National Guard or Reservist, a Department of Defense employee or a civilian employee of the US Coast Guard who is ordered to state or federal service or duty is entitled to the following provisions for each course the student is attending:.

Students who request a break in attendance of 45 days or greater due to military necessity may do so by submitting a Military Withdrawal Request. This request form also facilitates withdrawal from any current course s , if necessary. Military Tuition Assistance is refunded to the branch of service from which it originated.

Ashford University does not deny readmission to a service member of the uniformed services for reasons relating to that service. Students who meet the criteria subsequently outlined will be readmitted with the same academic status as the student had when he or she last attended Ashford University. An affected service member is any individual who is a member of, applies to be a member of, or performs, has performed, applies to perform, or has the obligation to perform, service in the uniformed services.

Service in the uniformed services means service, whether voluntary or involuntary, in the Armed Forces, including service as a member of the National Guard or Reserve, on active duty, active duty for training, or full-time National Guard duty under Federal authority for a period of more than 30 consecutive days under a call or order to active duty of more than 30 consecutive days. Any student whose absence from Ashford University is necessitated by reason of service in the uniformed services is entitled to readmission if the following apply:.

However, no advance notice by the student is required if the giving of such notice is precluded by military necessity, such as a mission, operation, exercise, or requirement that is classified; or a pending or ongoing mission, operation, exercise, or requirement that may be compromised or otherwise adversely affected by public knowledge.

An affected service member must, upon the completion of a period of service in the uniformed services, notify Ashford University of his or her intent to return to Ashford University not later than three years after the completion of the period of service. A student who submits an application for readmission to Ashford University must provide to Ashford University documentation to establish that:. In order for a service member to qualify for these benefits by reason of service, a student must submit appropriate documentation to the University.

Documents that might establish service member eligibility include, but are not limited to:. Ashford University may not delay or attempt to avoid a readmission of a student under this section by demanding documentation that does not exist, or is not readily available, at the time of readmission.

Students who meet the criteria for readmission after military service outlined previously will be promptly readmitted with the same academic status as when they last attended or were last admitted to the institution, but did not begin attendance because of that membership, application for membership, performance of service, application for service, or obligation to permit service.

If the student is readmitted to the same program, for the first academic year in which the student returns, the student will be assessed the same tuition and fee charges that the student was or would have been assessed for the academic year during which the student left the institution.

If the student is admitted to a different program, and for subsequent academic years for a student admitted to the same program, the student will be assessed no more than the tuition and fee charges that other students in the program are assessed for that academic year.

If Ashford University determines that the student is not prepared to resume the program, or will not be able to complete the program, the University will make reasonable efforts at no extra cost to the student to help the student become prepared or to enable the student to complete the program, including but not limited to providing refresher courses at no extra cost to the student.

Ashford University may also issue SOC agreements to servicemembers of other branches of service based on SOC policies and requirements. Ashford University must receive all previous college transcripts and military credit recommendations prior to the end of the second attempted course.

Upon full admission, the student will receive a SOC Student Agreement outlining their degree requirements. SOC Student Agreement degree requirements are valid for 8 years from the time the agreement is issued or the student voluntarily changes the degree program at which time a new agreement will be issued for the new program. Students who leave Ashford University and return after one year under a valid SOC Student Agreement will be given the program requirements under the last contract for degree.

When degree or course requirements change, students have the opportunity to voluntarily choose the new program to be more in-line with industry standards.

Students that return to a degree program that is no longer offered through Ashford University will be given the opportunity to be admitted into the most current program or under the contract version without loss toward academic progress. In accordance with this partnership, any Active Duty, National Guard, or Reservist student who attends the University will receive a military degree plan within 60 days after admission to the educational institution in which the individual has selected a degree program and all required official transcripts have been received.

The student will receive a Military Degree Plan with the evaluation of previous coursework received and the requirements for the degree program selected. The Military Degree Plan affords the student the opportunity to complete the degree requirements within the enrolled degree program within five 5 years of the issued date without the loss of academic progress. Students who choose to change their degree program will forfeit the issued degree plan and be issued a new Military Degree Plan for the new program.

Since Ashford University is a regionally accredited institution, other institutions may elect to accept Ashford University credits. However, students should be aware that the transfer of credit is controlled by the receiving institution, and therefore cannot be guaranteed by Ashford University unless part of a valid articulation agreement or included in an articulation numbering system.

Outside any formal partnership or agreement, students considering transferring to another institution have the responsibility to determine whether that institution will accept Ashford University credits. Ashford University does not imply, promise, or guarantee transferability of its credits to any other institution. The transferability of credits you earn at Ashford University is at the complete discretion of an institution to which you may seek to transfer.

Acceptance of the degree you earn in the educational program is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which you may seek to transfer. If the credits or degree that you earn at this institution are not accepted at the institution to which you seek to transfer, you may be required to repeat some or all of your coursework at that institution.

For this reason you should make certain that your attendance at this institution will meet your educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which you may seek to transfer after attending Ashford University to determine if your credits or degree will transfer.
