1 Science at KS4 at High Storrs

2 GCSE Qualifications – the end point Further Additional Science (Triple Science) Biology 3Chemistry 3Physics 3ISA (practical exam) Additional Science Biology 2Chemistry 2Physics 2ISA (practical exam) Science A (Core) Biology 1Chemistry 1Physics 1ISA (practical exam)

3 AQA GCSE Pathways Both GCSE pathways can lead to Science A Level providing a grade B is obtained in Additional Science

4 Further Additional Science ( Triple Science) Science A and Additional Science examined in June 2016 – their Y10. 6 one hour exams, 2 ISAs (practical exam) Further Additional Science examined in June one hour exams, 1 ISA (practical exam)

5 Y9 Pre GCSE Science Most will do Science A course and be examined in June 2016 – their Y10. 3 one hour exams and an ISA (practical exam) Then Additional Science and be examined in June 2017 – their Y11 3 one hour exams and an ISA (practical exam)

6 BTEC Pathways These do not lead to a Science A Level

7 A few will do – one class BTEC Level 2 Applied Science Outcomes can be Distinction – equivalent to a A* at GCSE Merit - equivalent to a B at GCSE Level 2 Pass - equivalent to a C at GCSE Level 1 Pass - equivalent to a E at GCSE 1 hour exam covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics Assignment based module Biology Assignment based module Chemistry Assignment based module Physics

8 A few will do – one support class BTEC Level 1 Applied Science Outcomes can be Level 1 Pass - equivalent to a E at GCSE Assignment based module Biology Assignment based module Chemistry Assignment based module Physics

9 BTEC or GCSE routes will be determined by How the students do in the Y9 assessment in term 2 Teacher judgement as to which pathway is most suitable for your child. You will be informed by letter. Performance throughout Y9 is paramount – Has this student shown they will thrive at GCSE?

10 How to help your child  Learn the syllabus  Some questions are recall  Some questions are application  Practice past paper questions  Highlight the importance of the ISA practical exam – you will receive a letter for this  Support the afterschool and Easter school intervention classes.

11 Revision techniques Braintrees – mindmaps Postcards Revision plan - everything is covered - twice Concentrate on what you need to improve on Little and often
