Applied General Science Level 3 Extended Certificate at Carre's Grammar School

Course description

The BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate is broadly equivalent to one A-Level. The course is designed for learners who are interested in learning about the science sector alongside other fields of study, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses, not necessarily in applied science. It may also offer apprenticeship or direct employment opportunities. This course serves to be taken as part of a programme of study that includes other appropriate BTEC Nationals or A Levels.

Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirements for level 3 applied study apply. In addition, Grade C or above in GCSE Science (single or combined) or Merit in Level 2 BTEC Applied Science study and Grade 4 in Mathematics is required.


Mandatory units; 1: Principles and Applications of Science I and Unit 3: Science Investigation Skills are externally- set written examination and written task assessments. Mandatory Unit 2: Practical Scientific Procedures and Techniques and the designated optional unit are portfolio based assessments.
