L3 Science (UE)

L3SCI
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs Franklin

Students will study aspects of all Science topics (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth and Space Science). The course is totally internally assessed and assessments will range from independent practical investigations to researching tasks and writing reports. It is an ideal for a student that wishes to have some Science credits at Level 3 but might not want to specialise in the individual Science courses. However, this course can be taken by students also taking L3 Physics, Biology or Chemistry. Students would benefit from having they own device (laptop) at school to use during class. If you take this course and gateway you must be prepared to complete work in your own time so you stay update with assessments.
