About the Course
This course will provide you with grounding in scientific principles, methods of scientific analysis and laboratory investigational techniques.
What you will study
You will complete a number of assignments throughout the course of the year. These will be assessed by your teachers and externally moderated by the examination board.
There have been changes to the assessment of BTEC Firsts. 75% of your work will be internally assessed but you will also take a paper-based test, a set task or performance or an on screen on demand test.
The external assessment will be at least one of the core units and a mandatory unit.
