Course Information

GCSE study in the sciences provides the foundation for understanding the material world.
Scientific understanding is changing our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity.
All students should learn essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They should gain appreciation of how the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of a small number of key ideas that relate to the sciences and that are both inter-linked and of universal application.
