SCIG22
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Nair

This is a new, multi-disciplinary general science course for students wanting to continue their studies in the Sciences, but not wanting to study at university. 

It will cover the 3 sciences - Biology, Chemistry and Physics in an all inclusive internally assessed course.

Key aspects of the course include linking to industry and practical work outside of the classroom. Students need to be prepared to take part in field trips.

It will continue on into a Level 3 course for students in the following year, if they choose.

The course will follow but not necessarily be exclusive to the standards offered below. As well as the standards offered there will be additional topics taught, e.g. Human Biology.
