Course description

The Science IGCSE Course combines the most interesting aspects of IGCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This is an ideal introduction for students who require a grounding in elementary science which has become a requirement for many important occupations, such as Teaching, Nursing & midwifery.  

IGCSE Science (Double Award) is worth TWO IGCSEs. Written by experienced science teachers and subject specialists, Marion Green, Michael Jones and Philip West, the course provides excellent preparation for the IGCSE Science examinations. Each lesson of the Combined GCSE course begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.


Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions. There are 25 tutor-marked assignments including a substantial mock exam. Students will need to have access to the internet to complete this course.
