L2 Internal Science (L2SCI)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr L. Oliver.

Recommended Prior Learning


The course comprises a mixture of Level 2 Biology and Earth and Space Science achievement standards. Despite standards not coming from all domains of Science, Chemistry and Physics themes are explored in the Earth and Space Science standards. Therefore, this course builds on some of topics studied in L1SCV and L1SCS and is aimed at those students who require a general understanding of Level 2 Science without the need for the detail covered in the other Level 2 courses. It is a totally internally assessed course and assessments will range from independent practical investigations to researching tasks and writing reports. BYOD (laptop) would be a benefit. If take this course and gateway, students will be expected to catch up in their own time and are required to be at school on practical assessment days or hand in work early if out on work placement when assessments are due.
