COURSE DESCRIPTION
The International GCSE in Science (Double Award) aims to impart a systematic body of scientific knowledge and facts, and an understanding of scientific concepts, principles, themes and patterns. Experimental skills based on correct and safe laboratory techniques are developed, as well as students ability to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them. This single-tier qualification is assessed via three papers - one each from chemistry, biology and physics.

The aims are to:
  • impart a systematic body of scientific knowledge and facts, and an understanding of scientific concepts, principles, themes and patterns
  • further students' appreciation of the practical nature of science, developing experimental skills based on correct and safe laboratory techniques
  • develop an appreciation of the importance of accurate experimental work to scientific method and reporting
  • develop students' ability to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them
  • sustain and develop an enjoyment of, and interest in, the scientific world
  • foster an appreciation of the significance of science in wider personal, social, environmental, economic and technological contexts, with a consideration of ethical issues
  • enable students to select, organise and present information clearly and logically, using appropriate scientific terms and conventions
  • prepare students for more advanced courses in each of the three scientific disciplines that comprise this specification
