Triple Science GCSE

Students will follow the new OCR Gateway Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE.

All students will initially follow the triple science programme but entry for triple versus combined will be confirmed in line with student progress over the two years.

The Biology course consists of modules on cell, organism and community level systems, scaling up, and interactions between systems and global challenges.

The Chemistry course has modules on particles, elements, compounds and mixtures.  Students will also study chemical reactions, predicting and identifying reactions, monitoring and controlling reactions and global challenges.

The Physics modules include matter, forces, electricity, magnetic fields, waves, radioactivity, energy and global challenges.

How is the course assessed?

Examination Board: OCR Gateway

All subjects will be assessed by six examinations and experimental skills will be tracked throughout the two years.
