Entry Level Science
This course is run to support those students who will struggle with the content of the Combined Science GCSE. It covers the same subject areas as the Combined Science course but in a little less depth. Selection for this course occurs at the end of Year 9 when students have been given the opportunity to show their ability and progress on the first two units of each GCSE discipline throughout the year.
Certification is achieved by completion of Teacher Devised Assessments and Externally Set Assessments. These are both internally marked and then externally moderated.
