Biology (Separate Science)

40667 Subject Icons Aw 02

All students will study Biology, Chemistry and Physics and you have been following the course material for Trilogy Science in Year 9. As a result of your performance in Year 8 and 9 and with strong advice from your Science teachers, you will be guided into either the Combined Science: Trilogy or Separate Science pathway.

The GCSE science specifications are organised into a series of units.

At Hulme, Year 10-11 students study either the three Separate GCSE courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Combined Science: Trilogy that covers aspects of all three sciences, which results in two GCSEs.

Alongside the theory there is a practical element of eight to ten required practicals in each of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and 21 Required practicals in the Combined Science that must be completed over the GCSE course.
