Course programme

GCSE Science
GCSE Science is a useful qualification for many jobs and is often a requirement for further or higher education.

What does the course consist of?
We will be studying the new AQA Science A course which leads to a single (core) Science GCSE. There are seven assessment units: six multiple-choice type papers and a practical skills internal assessment
The modules studied are:
Biology 1a - Human Biology
Biology 1b - Evolution and Environment
Chemistry 1a - Products from Rocks
Chemistry 1b - Oils, Earth and Atmosphere
Physics 1a - Energy and electricity
Physics 1b - Radiation and the Universe

Each of these modules are assessed through multiple choice papers. Two will be assessed in November, two in January and two in June.
Each module represents 12.5% of the final mark and the internally assessed practical is 25%.
The practical unit is assessed through an Investigative Skills Assessment, which consists of a normal class practical followed by an externally set, internally marked test taking 45 minutes and a Practical Skills Assessment which is a teacher assessment of your practical skills throughout the course.

What else do I need to know?
Do make sure you have a genuine interest in Science or a genuine need to study it- the course can be demanding. It is not advisable to start this course if you are not really committed.
