GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy

AQA GCSE COMBINED SCIENCE TRILOGY (8464)

INTRODUCTION

Combined Science is a joint award that looks at all three science disciplines and is worth two GCSEs upon completion. The previously offered ‘Core and Additional Science’ options have now been replaced with the new ‘Combined Science’ which is a compulsory component of the curriculum. The GCSE course has already been started in Year 9.

This course covers the new Key Stage 4 Science Programme of Study, the content of which makes up part of the separate science awards. It has been developed so that students become more ‘scientifically literate', i.e. they are able to make reasoned judgements about scientific issues which may affect them in their everyday lives. It covers aspects of biology, chemistry and physics and includes a detailed look at investigative skills.
