Science GCSE
What grades do I need?
Grade D or higher in any GCSE Science
course.
This course is for you if you...
...have a grade D or higher in GCSE Maths and
wish to improve it to a C or above.
What topics will I study?
The aim of this course is to provide an
opportunity for students to learn about
modern science and its effect on our daily
lives; to provide a recognised science
qualification for certain career paths; and to
offer a qualification that complements a wide
range of other qualifications at both Level 2
and Level 3.
 Biology topics on Environment,
Genetics, Nerves, Hormones and
Drugs;
 Chemistry topics on Chemical
Reactions, Useful Chemicals, Smart
Materials and
 Nanotechnology; and
 Physics topics on Electricity, Waves
and Space.
The course will develop factual knowledge
about some of the new developments in
science as well as some important basic ideas
that scientists have known for a long time.
The course will also look at “How Science
Works”. This is the process that scientists use
to gather evidence and develop new theories,
and also deals with what happens when this
work affects everyone else in our society.
This material will be delivered using a variety
of learning methods to help you reach your
potential.
There will be regular opportunities for
practical work and you will learn a range of
practical techniques, including some that
cannot usually be done in science classes at
school.
How will I be assessed?
75% exam, 25% practical controlled
assessment
How long is this course?
The Science GCSE course is 1 year.
What courses combine well with this
one?
GCSE Science can be taken as an add-on to a
Level 3 programme or alongside other Level 2
courses such as BTECs or GCSE subjects.
What can I do after this course?
Completion of this GCSE at a minimum grade
C will aid progression to Level 3 courses such
as Applied Science. Students may then be
able to take specific Science subject such as
Biology, Chemistry or Physics at AS/A2 Level
depending on the entry requirements (please
see specific course leaflets for this
information).
What other courses does this
department offer?
Applied Science BTEC Level 3
Biology AS/A2 Level 3
Chemistry AS/A2 Level 3
Physics AS/A2 Level 3

i think that if you want to be a doctor then triple science is gonna be the best option. but additional science goes through the heart, circulatory system, DNA, proteins and enzymes when learning about biology. (also you normally get to dissect a heart which is pretty epic too) if you need any help with whatever science you do i'll be here.
