What you will learn
GCSE Science or its equivalent is increasingly becoming essential for entry to many courses at higher education level, such as teacher training. This course has been designed specifically to allow flexibility and to allow attendance alongside a range of level 3 courses eg A Levels. Single Award is generally sufficient for entry to teacher training courses.

The course should be of interest not only to those wishing to gain a foundation qualification in science or wishing to maintain their level of scientific knowledge and methodology before entry to higher education, but also to those trying to progress to higher education where such a qualification is an essential prerequisite. The modules of study relate to the principal sciences of biology, chemistry and physics and may be taught in an integrated method. Practicals, experimental and investigative work are a central feature of the course.

Module titles
  • Biology -adaptation and competition, variation, evolution, inheritance, gene techology, homeostais, health and the nervous system.
  • Chemistry -atomic structure, compounds, new materials, rates of reaction, nanoscience, fuels, the atmosphere and geological processes.
  • Physics -electricity, heasting and the home, energy transfers and efficiency, waves the EM spectrum and space.
  • Practical assessment -one each of biology, chemistry and physics, all carried out under exam conditions.

How you will be assessed
    25% Biology exam
    25% Chemistry exam
    25% Physics exam
    25% Practical assessments

    One of the exams may be taken in January, the other two in June.
