Te Aroha College


Science is compulsory at Level 1


Science at Level 1 splits into three courses: Science Essentials (Sci 1&2), Science Practical (Sci 3) and Science Applied (Sci 4).


Students who are considering taking Science at Levels 2 and 3 should select Science Essentials.  It is likely that there will be two Science Essentials classes in 2019.  Science Essentials 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 Robertson.


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