Applied Science at Buckinghamshire UTC

Course description

Ofqual have announced a consultation on Completing GCSE, AS and A-level Reform which proposes to discontinue AS and A-level Applied Science after June 2016. See our update on the Ofqual consultation.

A-level Applied Science offers students the chance to concentrate on some of the vocational aspects of Science. As well as being ideal for students seeking a broad background in Science, it also suits those entering this vocational area for the first time.

This specification covers a range of Science topics including the following:

  • Sports Science
  • the role of the pathology service and ecology
  • conservation and recycling.

It also provides the opportunity for a variety of qualifications to be taken, for example an Advanced Subsidiary A-level or a double award depending on the modules studied.

A-level Applied Science is a good choice for students considering higher education in any Science-based course, including: Biochemical Sciences, Chemistry, Food Technology, Human Physiology, Nursing, Sports Science, Materials Science, and Medical Physics.
