GCSE Science
Who is this for?
This course is suitable for mature students who need GCSE Core Science for entry to a qualification like teacher training and also for those with a general interest in science who would like an up to date qualification. Higher study, for example AS sciences, may require taking a GCSE Additional Science course.

What Will I Learn?
Core GCSE Science will focus on real-life contexts. It gives grounding in the application of Science for all students, whether they are budding scientists or need an understanding of science in everyday life. The course starts looking at how certain science experiments are carried out and the type of data generated. Each section, Biology, Chemistry and Physics is subdivided into two with the titles:
Biology
Human biology
Evolution and environment
Chemistry
Atoms, metals, rocks and fuel
The Earth, polymers and fats
Physics
Energy and electricity
Waves, radiation and space

There will be practical experiments to help learning in each topic.
