    I think double award do modules 1-3 for each science and we do 1-6 but I think we cover the same topics, but I'm not entirely sure to be honest
    Yeha we do unit 1-4 and that's it tbh

    Lol I'm just surrounded by wannabe engineers so I have a fairly good guess
    Any idea what type of engineering? I heard robotics is a growing field
    Haha

    I'm not quite sure yet, I have just completed a 12 week taster course/club to test out different areas but I'm still not sure. My school has never offered any engineering GCSE and don't really talk about it as being a good career which is strange.

    I would be interested in robotics but wouldn't have the first idea about it. I have been thinking about aeronautical or electrical though.

    Ah right . How many hours do you have of the subject each week? We do 7 hours one week 8 hours the next.

    And tbh unit 6s, especially in Chemistry is mostly more detail on topics from the first units so it's like a recap if you will

    Hopefully not as I have a piece of work I can show at interviews and something for my personal statement and yes that is a big deciding factor for me, as I want a field where I can develop but also continue to develop and not just stop after one thing

    We don't have separate Chemistry, Physics and Biology lessons. We get 5 hours of science a week. Do you have separate classes?
