BTEC Applied Science at The Deepings School

Course description

This course is aimed at students for whom GCSE Science would be beyond them. The course will be taken by students in g1, g2 and b3 for Science. These students would find it very difficult to cope with the examination demands of GCSE Science but would be better suited to the assignment based assessment of the BTEC course in which they ought to be able to attain a level 2 pass – equivalent to C grade at GCSE. It is not suitable for students wishing to study single sciences to AS/A2 level.

Learning will take place through various activities including practical work, classroom based study and discussion work, ICT along with investigation work.

Future opportunities

This qualification is ideal if you wish to follow a practical based career such as medical, farming, mechanics, technician or some aspect of the food industry.
