Science Year 11
Students continue with their GCSE Combined Science or Triple Science course.
All content is examined at the end of year 11. This includes content they have covered in year 9 and year 10. Students will have regular assessments during the year to track their progress and understanding of the content.
Students are following the AQA GCSE (9-1) specification. Students following the Combined Science (Trilogy) or Triple Science route will cover the same topics, with Triple Science students covering some of these topics in more detail. During Year 11 students will cover the topics outlined below, along with revision of earlier topics in preparation for the final examinations. By the end of Year 11 students will have covered the topics listed below:
Biology (combined and triple science)
B1: Cell level systems
B2: Scaling up
B3: Organism level systems
B4: Community level systems
B5: Genes, inheritance and selections (interactions between systems)
B6: Global challenges
Chemistry (combined and triple science)
C2: Elements, compounds and mixtures
C3: Chemical reactions
C4: Predicting and identifying reactions and products.
C5: Monitoring and controlling chemical reactions
C6: Global challenges
Physics (combined science)
