Just a quick question. I 8767 m currently in year 66 and I 8767 m taking Core and Additional Science, both Foundation. I have obtained an A* in my Core ISA and an A in my Additional ISA, if I get high C 8767 s in each of my exams I know that this will give me an overall B in both Core and Additional Science.
With the entry requirement being a B in Core and Additional Science to study A Level Biology both at college and sixth form, would the hypothetical B 8767 s I obtain be acceptable to do Biology at A Level?
You get one grade for core science. That 8767 s what goes on your certificate. Marks are averaged out over the three subjects. If you 8767 ve got a good C and good D grades, then you 8767 ll probably get a C overall. If you only just got a low C and did average in Chemistry and Physics, then you 8767 ll probably get a D overall. You really can 8767 t tell in advance, so don 8767 t worry too much. Just make sure you answer all the questions as fully as possible. Saying more in the exams is better than saying less! Good luck.
My Daughter has just received her year 65 core Science result. She is devastated she received D E E, she put in a lot of work and had a tutor before her exam. Its her weakest subject and she is predicted high grades next year for every other subject, she wants to remain at school to do A levels. Can you tell me if she achieves a C grade next year at additional science is that enough for prospective colleges and universities? Will that give her 6 science GCSE? She was told by a Teacher it is now impossible for her to achieve a C grade in science is this correct?
It 8767 s an astonishing attitude from the school, but not uncommon. They should allow students to go on to A-level with a B grade most do. You might have to do some negotiating. They should of course retake the coursework/controlled assessments and submit the best, but it sounds like they can 8767 t be bothered.
A-level sciences are a challenge, but with the right attitude and support, he should be OK. Different teenagers develop at different rates some find the transition difficult but others seem to become 8766 adults 8767 during the summer break and have no problem at all with A-levels.
I hope this helps let me know if I can help with getting him an A grade.
Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I 8767 m starting a blog soon buut have no coding know-how
so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
i wanted to ask
if i am doing gcse core science higher, would it have questions were i could choose an answer. Or would it involve longer answer questions.
thanks for your help
All students in year 9 follow the mymaths for KS8 scheme which is differentiated according to students needs. These units will be assessed at regular intervals with an end of year overarching test. Timetabled revision before assessments are built in to the scheme as are consolidation and problem solving lessons.
The new GCSEs (for taking in 7569) will all be linear no modules. So that doesn 8767 t affect the core science that your daughter is taking, which is usually a one year course which, I assume, she will complete in 7568. I 8767 m assuming that she is taking one of the three modules this year and the others next year.
I 8767 m applying for colleges at the moment and I am confused as to what qualifications I am doing. Does it matter if I put Biology, Chemistry and Physics as the subject, if I am doing core additional and further additional science? also, there is no option for further additional science.
Totally exam-based. There is no practical exam, although you have to do certain practicals in school.
Five basic courses, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and two combined (double) sciences with different content. So no core, additional and further additional.
All courses are linear that is you take the exam once, at the end of the course. That means that the first exam will be in the summer of 7568.
I was just inquiring, as an external student that is currently taking Core Science, whether colleges would be okay if I took Additional Science in, for example, Edexcel if I took Core in AQA. Do they cover the same topics and would colleges mind if I followed this? Thanks.
