  8. Science Curriculum 2017-18 Robert Graves Head of Science

  9. Science curriculum GCSE 9-1 Examining body: AQA Combined Science : Trilogy (8684) Biology (8461) Chemistry (4402) Physics (8463)

  10. Combined Science: Trilogy (8684) Biology subject content Cell Biology Organisation Infection and response Bioenergetics Homeostasis and response Inheritance, variation and evolution Ecology Key ideas Physics subject content Energy Electricity Particle model of matter Atomic structure Forces Waves Magnetism and electromagnetism Key ideas Chemistry subject content Atomic structure and the periodic table Bonding, structure and the properties of matter Chemical changes Energy changes The rate and extent of chemical change Organic chemistry Chemistry of the atmosphere Using resources Key ideas http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/resources/science/specifications/AQA-8464-SP-2016.PDF

  11. Assessment weightings Please note that practical skills are no longer assessed as controlled assessments. These skills will now be assessed as part of the written paper.

  12. Entries and awarding grades • Students have to sit all foundation tier or all higher tier as part of the award. • The qualification will be graded on a 17 point scale; 1-1 to 9-9 where 9-9 is the best grade. • A student taking foundation tier will be able to achieve between 1-1 and 5-5 • A student taking higher tier will be awarded a grade within the range 4-4 and 9-9 • Students who just fail to reach the minimum standard for the for higher will be awarded a 4-3 any thing lower will be grade U (unclassified)

  13. Separate Science: Biology, Chemistry and Physics Biology subject content Cell Biology Organisation Infection and response Bioenergetics Homeostasis and response Inheritance, variation and evolution Ecology Key ideas Physics subject content Energy Electricity Particle model of matter Atomic structure Forces Waves Magnetism and electromagnetism Space physics (separate only) Key ideas Chemistry subject content Atomic structure and the periodic table Bonding, structure and the properties of matter Chemical changes Energy changes The rate and extent of chemical change Organic chemistry Chemistry of the atmosphere Using resources Key ideas The topics are mostly the same with the expectation of Physics where there is an additional topic. The depth of understanding is increased and the way in which it is assessed in to greater depth http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/resources/science/specifications

  14. Assessment weightings Please note that practical skill are no longer assessed as controlled assessments. These skills will now be assessed as part of the written paper.

  15. Entries and awarding grades • Students have to sit all foundation tier or all higher tier as part of the award. • The qualification will be graded on a 9 point scale; 1-9 where 9 is the best grade. • A student taking foundation tier will be able to achieve between 1-5 • A student taking higher tier will be awarded a grade within the range 4-9 • Students who just fail to reach the minimum standard for the for higher will be awarded a 3 any thing lower will be grade U (unclassified)

  16. A guide to Maths

  17. Results • 76 % students achieved Grade 9-4 • 12.4 % achieved Grade 9-8 • 90+ students enrolled on A level maths / mathematical studies • 30+ students enrolled on A level further maths

  18. Maths GCSE • Paper 1 = Non - calculator (80 marks) • Paper 2 = Calculator (80 marks) • Paper 3 = Calculator (80 marks) • Foundation = grades 5 - 1 • Core maths that students will require for the future and building skills for transition to higher • Higher = grades 9 – 4 • Extension topics, ideal for students wishing to stay in further education studying maths related subjects • Decisions on tiers are made in year 11
