Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Lincoln

Level 2 and 3 Combined Sciences

This course integrates different sciences (biology, chemistry, physics and Earth & space) to provide an internally based course at level 2 or 3. Integrated science can count as a UE subject if 14 Level 3 Science credits are completed across both semesters. Each semester can be completed as a standalone course to add to your level 2 or 3 credits. Semester 1 will be research based on a variety of current scientific issues. The aim is to develop opinions based on factual research and evidence rather than Facebook and social media misconception. Standards and topics can be negotiated based on interest areas.
