AQA Combined Science
This double GCSE contains elements of Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Students on this course have 5 hours per week of science. The content is studied in years 10 and 11 but all external exams are sat at the end of year 11. There is no internal assessment. This course allows progression to A level science courses and is offered to all students at BOA as part of their core studies.

Triple Science Option
AQA Biology, Chemistry , Physics
Students choosing Triple Science as an option study three separate GCSEs, one in each science. The course covers the same areas as the double science GCSE but in more depth. In addition students will study a unit of space physics. This course is more demanding than the double science course and will be taught over 7.5hrs per week. Students will need to pass an assessment at the start of the course to ensure they will be able to cope with the demands of the course.
