What is GCSE Double Science?

GCSE Double Science is a two-year study programme in which students attain two separate GCSE Science qualifications. The two GCSE’s are made up of Science A GCSE and Additional Science GCSE which both cover Biology, Chemistry and Physics content. This provides a firm foundation for progression to most of the Science courses offered at Post 16.

 

Course Description

GCSE Double Science features many of the major theories of Science in a way that encourages students to appreciate their importance to everyday life. The course also explores how scientific information is obtained, how reliable it is, what its limitations are, and how this information helps society to make important decisions.

Provided the required grades are attained at the end of the two year course, GCSE Science (Double Award) provides a basis for studying AS and A-level Science courses.

 

Examples of careers that GCSE Science (Double Award) may lead to are:

  • Medicine
  • Pharmaceutical Science
  • Pathology
  • Forensic Science
  • Engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Research Science
