BTEC Level 2 Award in Principles of Applied Science at St John Rigby College
The BTEC Level 2 Award in Applied
Science covers the Key Stage 4
Programme of Study for Science,
so the content is similar to that which
you would have studied at school
during year 10 and 11.
This qualification is equivalent to one
GCSE, in which you study an equal
amount of biology, chemistry and
physics. There is ample opportunity
within this course to explore the
practical aspects of science, through
guided laboratory work and develop
your scientific skills.
+ Principles of Science (External)
+ Chemistry and Our Earth
+ Energy and Our Universe
+ Biology and Our Environment
To study a Level 2 programme you will have achieved a minimum of three grade 3s in your GCSEs, in addition to a grade 3 in English Language (please refer to the Entry Requirements section page 24 for further details)
You will be assessed through internally assessed written assignments, presentations and practical work which are graded Pass, Merit or Distinction. Twenty-five per cent of the qualification is externally assessed via a 60 minute examination.
This course is suitable for those still requiring a Level 2 Science qualification for progression to certain Level 3 and 4 courses in their future education. This qualification provides evidence of a satisfactory underpinning science knowledge for progression to specific courses with a science qualification entry requirement.
