"科学 has changed our lives and is vital to the world's future prosperity and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the 知识, 方法, 科学的过程和使用."
第三阶段关键课程, 它包含了生物学的各个方面, 化学, 和物理, aims to encourage learners to link direct practical experience with scientific ideas. To introduce challenge in the latter part of KS3, these subjects are taught as separate disciplines in Year 9. Learners are introduced to practical skills to allow them to investigate safely and effectively. Their ability to communicate their findings clearly and draw conclusions is developed and they learn to question and discuss scientific issues that may affect their own lives, 其他社会, 以及世界的未来.
The 科学 GCSEs offered at 线上买球app are part of the AQA 科学 suite of qualifications for 生物学, 物理, 和化学. The specification aims to give candidates opportunities to:
- Develop their interest in, enthusiasm for, science;
- Develop a critical approach to scientific evidence and 方法;
- 获得和应用技能, 知识 and understanding of how science works and its essential role society;
- Acquire scientific skills, 知识 and understanding necessary for progression to further learning.

生物学是研究生命的学科. It lies at the heart of our everyday existence. It helps to explain how we work and how we fit in with the world around us. It looks at how we began and what our future may hold. 新技术的进展, 比如重组DNA和基因组学, have made this varied discipline more exciting than ever.
Whether you are interested in saving threatened species, 研究微生物, growing organic plants for food or curing diseases, studying 生物学 gives you the skills and opportunities to advance human 知识 and understanding in today's world, make a true difference to the world of tomorrow. We follow the AQA 生物学 Specification in KS5.
化学 is a fundamental science and impacts on all facets of our lives. An understanding of 化学 is necessary to all other sciences from astronomy to zoology. All of the materials used by engineers and technologists are made by chemical reactions and we all experience chemical reactions continuously, 无论是烤蛋糕, driving a car or listening to an MP3 player. 化学 is concerned with all aspects of molecules, 它们的物理和化学性质, 它们的组成和结构, their synthesis and use in the 21st century. We follow the OCR 化学 Specification in KS5.
物理 is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us and the world beyond us. It is the most basic and fundamental science, underpinning all things.
物理 encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest sub-atomic particles. It challenges our imaginations and leads to great discoveries and technologies that change our lives: from healing joints and curing cancer, to developing sustainable energy solutions. 物理 forms the basis of most modern technologies and holds the future to our global well-being. We follow the AQA 物理 Specification in KS5.
