Applied Science (AQA Level 3 Certificate) at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

This broadly-based science course includes study of applied aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics and is aimed at students who want or are suited to a more applied science qualification. The course focuses on how science can be applied in the workplace and involves practical and theory work. It will prove useful to students who wish to pursue a science-related career. As well as sitting examinations, the students will produce a substantial amount of coursework so a commitment to working independently and meeting deadlines is required.
