GCSE Science – The Ridgeway School 2017-2018

All students will follow one of the following pathways in their time in Years 10 and 11.

Combined sciences (Triology):

Students will study all three disciplines across the two years. This will culminate in 6 exams (2 in each discipline) and students can end year 11 with 2 science GCSEs.

Separate Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics):

Students will have separate lessons and teachers for each discipline covering slightly more material in more depth than those in combined. This will culminate in 6 exams (2 in each discipline) and students can end year 11 with 3 GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

(Neither course inhibits entry onto University or A level courses, it is the grades in these subjects that have high impact).
