COORDINATED SCIENCE offers the students the chance to achieve two GCSEs in the sciences. Students still study Biology, Chemistry and Physics separately with a specialist but the subjects are examined together. The content studied and the number of exams is reduced which allows for more preparation and revision time, however students will achieve two Science GCSEs rather than three. The full range of grades (A*A*-GG) can be achieved and for some candidates the reduction in content might allow them to achieve higher grades via this route.
N.B: Coordinated Science candidates sit three exams at the end of the course rather than nine but they are slightly longer papers.
Sixth form here is like no other sixth form and that is not just because of the International Baccalaureate Diploma. It’s the way we are treated like adults, have plenty of freedom and are trusted.U6 Student
