This paper includes synoptic questions that draw on any of the topics in the specification as well as the core practicals studied throughout the course.
Note: Overall, a minimum of 20% of the marks across the three papers will be awarded for mathematics at Level 2 or above.
Science Practical Endorsement: In addition to the three written exams at the end of the course, the course offers a Science Practical Endorsement which is composed of 18 Core Practicals that are taught as part of the two year course. These are designed to allow students to learn a range of practical skills and apply key experimental techniques, thus developing both a conceptual and theoretical understanding of experimental methods. As such they also constitute a key element within the Paper 3 exam.
