Anatomy and Physiology Students FAQs

Published on 5th January 2021


How do I access the units?

There are 3 ways to access the 13 units of the course.

1/ Click the link in the tool bar at the top of the e-course called “Anatomy and Physiology” you will get a drop-down menu to select courses from there. You must read all the pages (about 16) in “Getting Started” to know how to follow the anatomy and physiology course, access pathology homework and find vital information about the anatomy and physiology exam.

2.When you login you can click on your name and select “dashboard” from the drop-down menu. You will also be able to see your progress here.

3/At the end of each unit, there is a link to the next unit.

Muscles: do I need to learn them all?

There are 640 muscles in the body and the ITEC syllabus require you to know the 40 that we cover in the anatomy and physiology e-course. So yes, you do need to know those 40. I know it is pretty hard going, so suggest you do one a day and make some flash cards to revise from. Also remember the pass mark is just 50% so there is lots of room for error!

What is the book you recommend for the anatomy and physiology course?

An Introductory Guide to Anatomy and Physiology by Louise Tucker.

This isn’t the best a and p book on the shelf, however it has been written for the ITEC exam board, so worth having a copy. A second hand one would be fine.

Can I see past exam papers?

We are not allowed to circulate past papers but there are mock exams as follows:

The skeletal system mock exam is at the end of the skeletal unit. Muscular system mock exam is at the end of the muscles, origins and insertions unit. Cardio-vascular and respiratory system mock exam at end of respiratory unit. Nervous, endocrine systems and skin mock exam are found at the end of skin unit.

We will also send you a few sample questions provided by ITEC when you book your exam

Can I use an Ipad or phone for my exam?

ITEC regulations state that the use of an Ipad or phone (Zoom) is not allowed for the A&P exam.  You must use either a PC, Mac or laptop.  There must be a webcam either built in or attached and a mouse.  You may not touch the keyboard during the exam.

What are the grades awarded?

The following grades are awarded for the A&P Exam by ITEC:
Pass – 50-74%
Merit – 75-89%
Distinction – 90-100%

What is the title of the qualification?

"The level 3 Anatomy and Physiology course has been really worthwhile, and provided me with a much needed foundation in A&P to go onto Osteopathy. Thanks for providing such an accessible, and easy to follow study program."
