Students should only choose Separate Sciences if it has been recommended they do so.
What will I be studying?
In Separate Sciences, students have the opportunity to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics in greater depth.
For each branch of science, a series of practical skills will be examined in addition to the theory content. At the end of the course, students will be awarded a separate GC SE grade for each of the separate sciences, giving three grades in total. The separate sciences are ideal preparation for the study of the separate sciences at A Level.
Students require a good level of numeracy and literacy to access the higher level material on the course.
What can I do afterwards?
Separate Science provides a sound basis for A Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics and would be an advantage to students wishing to study science at University or follow a career in science such as medicine, psychology or engineering. The analytical skills developed in the separate sciences can be transferred to subjects such as law or architecture.
Each of our Year 7 & 8 will receive a FREE book! During the next two weeks students will pick their book from 17 titles. Take a look at this year's choice on the Bookbuzz website.
