GCSE Science: Trilogy  

Within GCSE Science students will study AQA Combined Science: Trilogy (9-1)

Each examination is assessed by a written paper, which has a mixture of short and long answer questions. 40% AO1, 40% AO2 and 20% AO3. Written paper, 1 hour 15 minutes, 70 marks, 16.7 % of qualification.

Biology Paper 1 Topics assessed: Cell biology; organisation; infection and response; and bioenergetics.
Chemistry Paper 1 Topics assessed: Atomic structure and the periodic table; bonding, structure and the properties of matter, quantitative chemistry, chemical changes; and energy changes.
Physics Paper 1 Topics assessed: Energy; electricity; particle model of matter; and atomic structure.
Biology Paper 2 Topics assessed: Homeostasis and response; inheritance; variation and ecology; and ecology.
Chemistry Paper 2 Topics assessed: The rate and extent of chemical change; organic chemistry, chemical analysis, chemistry of the atmosphere, and using resources.
Physics Paper 2 Topics assessed: Forces; waves; and magnetism and electromagnetism.
