The final assessment opportunity for this qualification (J251) will be summer 2017.
Our Gateway Science and Twenty First Century Science suites have been redeveloped for first teaching in September 2016. The new suites will each contain separate Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications and a Combined Science (Double Award) specification.
This qualification is a course which meets the needs of learners who wish to develop their scientific understanding through authentic, work-related contexts. The course focuses on procedural and technical knowledge that underpins the work, and gives learners an insight into what is involved in being a practitioner of science.
