Hi everyone,

Does anybody on here study access to Science/or the subjects Biology, Chemistry and Psychology, and have any ideas where I can find information about these subject's content, or like a course overview that identifies the modules/assessment methods? I've checked my college's website but there's nothing on there.

Thanks!

I did Access Combined Sciences.

The module breakdown was:

Biology:
Cells and organelles
Bio-molecules
Continuity of life
Co-ordination and control
Energetics
Synoptic unit

Chem:
Amount of substance
Energetics (not the same as the bio module)
Kinetics
Organic chemistry
Structure and bonding
The Periodic Table

Maths:
Algebraic techniques
Calculus
Co-ordinate geometry

Physics:
Electricity and power
Materials, atoms and nucleus
Static and dynamic mechanics

There was also an independent study we had to do.

The grading was discretionary, but everything had to be invigilated by the examination board.

Before each module, we were provided with documentation that outlines what exactly is expected to earn a specific grade. It was very clear.

Even though the course is different, you will probably cover similar topics in the chem and biology that I noted.
