Updated - Y11 Science Exams

All students will be sitting 6 GCSE Science exams in Summer 2018:

  • Exams in Biology B1, Chemistry C1 and Physics P1 in May 2018
  • Exams in Biology B2, Chemistry C2 and Physics P2 in June 2018

In order to emulate this spacing of Science GCSE exams, our six Mock exams have been scheduled to be about one month apart.  This will allow students the time to revise effectively and perform better during the main whole school Mock Exam period for all subjects.

The content for the B1, C1 and P1 has been completed last year and we are currently covering the content for B2, C2 and P2.

The Mock exams for B1, C1, P1 will be held during normal Science lessonsStudents have been informed of these arrangements by their Science teachers.

Students on the Sri Lanka trip will be able to take their Biology 1 and Physics 1 Mock exams on Thursday 2nd November, at 3.05-4.05 in Room 14 with Mrs Proctor as arranged.

Tier of Entry

The results from all 6 mock exams will be used to inform the decision about the entry of students into either Foundation or Higher tier in the summer Science GCSE exams.  For this reason, it is essential that students maximise their revision.

Triple Science

Students who wish to be selected to follow the Triple Science course to gain three GCSEs in the Separate Sciences will need to perform to a high level in all of the 6 exams in these mocks. 

Triple Science GCSE  Mock Exams for selected students will be scheduled separately after November to allow more course content to be examined.

The dates and times of the B1, C1 and P1 Science exams in lessons, along with the topics to be tested are here (this is an updated version).  Please make sure that students are present in school during these times to enable them to benefit from the valuable revision process.  In order to support students, Revision Guides and websites should be used.  Links to some useful websites are:
