This one year intensive course covers GCSE English and Maths plus the three separate sciences: GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry and GCSE Physics. This is an interesting, enjoyable yet demanding course that enables students to improve upon their previous GCSE grades. Students will have the opportunity to enhance their understanding of scientific theory and its applications alongside developing their practical skills.
The syllabus covered for each of the sciences consists of a subject core and extension material. The Biology GCSE covers topics including Genetics, Cells, Environmental Studies, Human Behaviour and Biotechnology. The Chemistry GCSE covers topics including Atomic Structure, Chemical Reactions, Chemical Synthesis and Modern Applications. The Physics GCSE covers topics including Space Exploration, Electricity, Mechanics, Radioactivity and Medical Physics. Students will also study GCSE English and Maths as part of the Package course. All full-time students will have a personal tutor and access to a wide range of enrichment activities. Your course will give you an opportunity to develop skills in numeracy, literacy and communication, including speaking and listening skills.
Theory supported by practical work.
