These courses will prepare students academically for their next steps into Further or Higher Education, or for a career in a science-relate subject. Many of our students go on to study a science-related discipline at university in areas such as biomedical science, microbiology, health, or study for degrees in biology, chemistry, or physics.
Students will need a minimum of three grade 4s and two grade 5s at GCSE including a grade 4 in GCSE English. The two grade 5s must come from a selection of Maths, Combined Science, Physics, Chemistry, or Biology, with the rest of these subjects at grade 4. Progression from Level 2 Vocational Science will require a merit grade profile wil Level 2 passes in examined units and grade 4 in English and grade 5 in Maths. Additional Information: We will consider 1 Vocational qualification in place of a GCSE as long as a grade 4 is achieved in English.
