- Entry Recommendations:
Students are expected to have at least 8 credits from 11SCI, 11SCP, 11BIO. Alternatively, students can discuss their suitability with the HOLA.
- Course Outline:
By the end of the Level 2 course, students will have developed their understanding of aspects of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology and Astronomy. In addition they will refine their Science skills.
Students are not recommended to study Level 2 Science along with Level 2 Physics due to an overlapping standard.
Students will be assessed internally using research and investigation based assignments, along with one external standard at the end of the year.
- Where Does It Lead:
Level 3 Earth and Space Science, Level 3 Forensic Science, Level 3 Biology depending on their success in this course. Any occupation where a basic knowledge of Science is required and may assist with entry to courses for school leavers (tertiary, armed forces...).
