Level 1 Science Internal

11SCII
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Maxwell

This is a course for students who will probably not need entry into Level 2 Biology, Chemistry or Physics but are still interested in learning about the world. We cover four internals throughout the year:

1 Biology – microorganisms

2 Chemistry – metals 

3 Chemistry - carbon cycling

4 Physics – heat

Additional/alternative standards may also be offered on a case by case basis.


Recommended Prior Learning

This is not an open entry programme. Students are selected based on recommendations by the student’s Year 10 Science Teacher, in consultation with HOLA Science and the Deans.
