Science GCSE at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

This course will be offered as a single award following the AQA Science specification. The course is primarily offered to allow students who do not have a grade C in a science subject the opportunity to achieve this target.

It is not a suitable preparation for AS Level study in Biology, Chemistry or Physics, but is suitable for other AS courses requiring C in science, including the AS Applied Science course. The course involves units of Chemistry, Biology and Physics and the analysis and collection of data in assessed coursework.

Entry requirements

These are one-year courses open to AS and AFP students and are normally 5 lessons a week. Most of these GCSEs are studied with the objective of entering students for the Foundation or Intermediate tier of the GCSE. Some subjects willenter students at Higher Level and this will be important if you are thinking of taking the subject to AS Level in your second year in College.
