    hey guys

    I have my interview PGCE secondary science next week and just need some help understanding this.

    for the presentation they have said: do a talk on a science topic of your own choice, which would be suitable for an audience of 16 year olds

    that's it

    so does that mean any topic in science that a group of 16 year olds would understand?

    or should i stick to something that comes in the gcse syllabus?

    :confused:

    help pls x

    One equals the other doesn't it? As in something they understand would have to be on a GCSE syllabus.

    I would suggest going for a topic where you can use some props and/or visual aids. They really do appreciate you making an effort.

    Good luck with this

    not necessarily
    I was thinking of a presentation on my dissertation topic but just breaking it down to a level 16 year olds would understand

    thanks
