Why study this course?
With the option to study during the day or evening, this intensive one year course will give you the opportunity to progress onto careers that need a GCSE in Science, such as Primary Education, Nursing and Paramedics.
The evening class takes place in one of our dedicated science laboratories.
The course has 18 units that include human biology, diseases, genetics and ecology. The course content is assessed by two exam papers, each covering half the content. There are 10 practicals to complete. These will help you apply your knowledge and the skills you gain will also be tested across the two exam papers.
A good level of English and maths is required but a GCSE pass in these subjects is not required.
