There is the opportunity within the curriculum for students who wish to follow the triple award pathway to choose to do so in the option block. This is a demanding course and entry into this pathway will be based on achievement in year 9. By choosing this option you will “top up” your science understanding so that you will study themes and models in even more detail than the usual double science pathway.
Examinations will have Higher and Foundation tier papers. All examinations will be sat in June 2022 as the qualification follows a linear model. The exam papers will be a mixture of multiple choice, short and long answer questions. There is no longer a controlled assessment strand to these GCSEs, instead practical skills and understanding will be assessed throughout key stage 4.
