Coordinated Science (IGCSE)

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.

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
