- Electricity and magnetism.
Various contexts are used by teachers to cover these main strands. At the end of Year 10 students will have completed study at Level 5 of the New Zealand curriculum and will be ready to study at Level 6 of the New Zealand curriculum during Year 11.
Students will be assessed in all the contextual areas with a variety of tests, and an integrated examination will be held at the end of the year.
These assessments can be used for recommending students into senior science courses.
