Year 10 Science


Overview:

We follow the AQA Science GCSE course in year 10. Within this biology, chemistry and physics topics are studied. Pupils also develop their scientific enquiry skills through practical and discussion work.

Pupils are entered for 6 modular exams during year 10. There are 2 exams in November, 2 exams in March and the final 2 in June of year 10. Each modular exam is worth 12.5% towards their GCSE. Pupils are awarded a GCSE at the end of year 10.

There are two pieces of coursework which count towards the science GCSE. These are completed in school under exam conditions and are worth 25% towards the GCSE.

After their science GCSE exams in June, pupils will start work on their year 11 science course.
