At Links Academy we give the students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Science, enhance their application of methods and understand the processes and uses of Science.
At GCSE the students are taught AQA Biology in year 10 and 11 and all are entered for the single Science course in year 11. The exam consists of two papers and include the topics of cell biology, organisation, infection and response, ecology, bioenergetics, homeostasis and response, key ideas and inheritance, variation and evolution.
During KS3 the students are taught the OCR Entry Level Certificate which is assessed internally through tests and tasks. The areas covered allow the students to gain an understanding of the physical, chemical and biological world. If required this course can be continued into KS4.
