Advice please: which GCSE Science course to offer.

Discussion in 'Science' started by Mat Galvin, Feb 29, 2012.

  1. Previously:
    We offered AQA triple, double, Nationals and Single.

    Now
    We offer AQA triple, double and single.

    However, the FFTD pupils at C/D/E are really struggling with the AQA course. We may be able to have a small group of BTEC (15 pupils) but most of these pupils will need something more appropriate to their needs. Literacy is a problem for some. Disengagement a problem for some others. The AQA Science A is coming over as a little too academic in terms of the Q style, CAU and resources.

    21st Century Science? Any good?
    Other options?

    Advice and experiences welcome.

    Thanks

    Mat

    21st core science has some monumentally theoretical bits of special interest to scientists, but less so to teenagers. It doesn't inspire them.
