The course content is split into 6 units, during which students will be assessed three times, finishing with an end of topic assessment based on past exam papers.
Students opting to take this course will have at least 4 lessons a week to ensure they have access to enough curriculum time to cover the course content. At the end of the year they will sit two exams to gain their GCSE qualification. The exam boad we use is AQA.
