About the subject

This is a two year course, designed to provide the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills to progress into further education, or into vocational science careers.

 

The course covers the fundamentals of science in biology, chemistry and physics, as well as more specialised topics such as microbiology.  The course is assessed by a combination of examinations and coursework.

 

In previous years, students completing vocational applied science courses have gone on to study a wide range of subjects, including: Forensic science, Nursing, Sport science and Environmental science.

 

The extended certificate is the equivalent of a single A-Level, with UCAS points being awarded in the same manner as A-Level courses.
