what changes have happened already
What changes have happened already?
  • Triple Science modular exams are being phased out by July 2013
  • Replaced by Triple Science linear subjects. All assessment is carried out once all teaching hours are complete (terminal examination).
  • Students can count two of the three subjects towards the English Baccalaureate, though students must be entered for all three subjects
what are the implications of the changes
What are the implications of the changes?
  • No formal examination until completion of the course (360 GLH or 120 GLH per year) – large commitment in terms of curriculum time to complete Triple Science
  • Reduced opportunities for retakes
  • Coursework must be submitted at the end of the year together with all examinations
  • Increased pressure on students to perform well in one session and increased need for more knowledge recall

  • Students would study Biology, Chemistry and Physics as separate subjects
  • Assessment for all subjects would be linear meaning no examinations or coursework submitted until the end of Year 11
