Are you enjoying Science at GCSE? This course allows a more in depth look at topics across the three Science disciplines. In the first year, you will develop your practical skills in a wide range of experimental work. You will analyse and evaluate your own progress in that practical work through a series of assignments.

You will learn about key concepts in Biology, Chemistry and Physics through theory based lessons for the examination based element. In the second year, you will further develop their practical skills as well as completing another assignment based unit. The course is based on up-to-date content and allows you to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes required in the science sector.
