Science Core GCSE (AQA) at Ryburn Valley High School

Course description

Everyone will study Science at Key Stage 4 and almost everyone will take two science GCSE’s. If you are specially invited to follow the Entry Level ‘Science Plus’ then you will follow that course in Year 10 and may complete GCSE Science in Year 11. ALL OTHER STUDENTS HAVE AN IMPORTANT CHOICE TO MAKE. Either OCR Science and Additional Science or OCR Double Award Applied Science.These two courses are very different. You will be given a lot of guidance on this choice by your Science teachers. The curriculum time spent on the two options is the same so you are not asked to make the choice now

Future opportunities
