Aims

This specification encourages students to:

  • develop their interest in an enthusiasm for the subject, including developing an interest in further study and careers associates with the subject
  • develop essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of the subject and how they relate to each other
  • develop and demonstrate a deep appreciation of the skills, knowledge and understanding of scientific methods
  • develop competence and confidence in a variety of practical, mathematics and problem-solving skills
  • understand how society makes decisions and scientific issues and how the sciences contribute to the success of the economy and society
  • use theories, models and ideas to develop scientific explanations
  • use knowledge and understanding to pose scientific questions, define scientific problems, present scientific arguments and scientific ideas
  • use appropriate methodology, including information and communication technology (ICT), to answer scientific questions and solve scientific problems
  • carry out experimental and investigative activities, including appropriate risk management, in a range of contexts
  • analyse and interpret data to provide evidence, recognising correlations and causal relationships
  • know that scientific knowledge and understanding develops over time
  • communication information and ideas in appropriate ways using appropriate terminology
  • consider applications and implications of science and evaluate their associated benefits and risks
