GCSE Triple Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)

Why study this course?

This course is for those who wish to follow a traditional academic curriculum.  At the end of the two year course you will have 3 GCSEs, (GCSE Physics, GCSE Chemistry and GCSE Biology).

What topics/will I learn?

The content builds on what students learn in GCSE combined science and includes additional material ideas.

How will I be assessed?

There are two examinations for each science so two papers for GCSE Biology, two papers for GCSE Chemistry and two papers for GCSE Physics.  Each paper will be 1 hour 45 minutes in length.

Practical Assessment

Although there is no longer a coursework element to the final grade, practical work is still important.  Each examination will contain (15% of the marks) questions that test practical skills, knowledge and understanding as well as investigative skills.  Students will complete a series of core practicals throughout the two years to support this.

What will this course lead to after Key Stage 4?

This course can lead to any of the science A-levels; Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
