Equivalent to three A Levels, this course will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills you need for progressing on to a science-based degree or starting a career in a range of scientific fields, including biomedical, chemical engineering or forensic analysis.
This course develops your understanding of scientific theory and skills, coupled with experimental techniques that help you to be successful in either employment or at
university. Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to perform a variety of biology and chemistry experimental work as well as learning how to work safely within a laboratory environment, using Maths and statistics to analyse experimental data.
Optional units include looking at the use of radiation in diagnostic testing or the collection and analysis of forensic evidence from crime scenes. Many of our past
students have successfully gone on to study a wide range of science degrees at university from biomedical science to midwifery or secured apprenticeships in local scientific laboratories.
