What I'll learn
The Science pathway involves studying chemistry, human biology and psychology. Chemistry provides a general introduction to the three classical branches - physical, inorganic and organic chemistry.
Human biology starts with a general overview of the main body systems, followed by the studying of cell division and genetics, reproductive and nervous systems and homeostatic mechanism regulated by the endocrine system.
You will also examine some of the theories and methods in psychology and explore human behaviour. In addition to subject knowledge the course can help boost your communication and study skills.
There will also be the opportunity to gain GCSE maths and English as part of your programme.
How I'll learn
Your studying will involve a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, research projects, and laboratory practicals. In the case of psychology, credits are gained for a variety of tasks such as essays, reports, oral presentations and timed assessments.
How I'll be assessed
Assessment is via a combination of exams (approximately 30%) and coursework (approximately 70%).
