Science- Internal L1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Kurian

Science at Level 1 splits into two courses: Science General and Science Internal
Students who are considering taking Science at Levels 2 and 3 should select General Science. It is likely that there will be two General Science classes in 2020. General Science will consist of three externally assessed Achievement Standards, with one or two internally assessed Achievement Standards selected according to their interests in consultation with the Head of Science Mr Kurian.


Students who do not intend to take Science beyond Level 1 should select Science Internal. Science Internal is designed to cater for students who have struggled with their Science studies in Year 10.


Course Highlights: This course is for students who do not wish to continue their formal study of Science beyond Year 11.  The focus is on internally assessed standards.   Students who take this course do not have the option of taking separate Science subjects at year 12 (ie Chemistry, Physics or Biology).


This course can lead to: Students may continue to experience the scientific world but this is their last formal year of Science.


For more information, please see Head of Science Mr Kurian or your Year 10 Science teacher
