GCSE scince is just so dull. They have removed all the interesting stuff and replaced it with new age, brown bread and sandals stuff that requires no practical work. The people who think up this drivel must think that because it is 'modern' it must be cutting edge. In fact the kids think that it is boring, irrelevent to them, boring, already covered in geography, RE, PE, Technology and it is boring. And I have to agree with them. The GCSE chemistry spends ages on the greenhouse effect (which they have covered every years since year 3) vegetable oils, food additives, plastic recycling. Boring, boring, boring!
