Combined Science - Core Subject

Combined Science at Edgar Wood Academy embodies Albert Einstein’s quotation ‘The important thing is to never stop questioning.’ You will use knowledge from the three key disciplines (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) to help answer global, regional, historical, and personal questions.

GCSE Combined Science involves problem solving, reasoning and application of fundamental scientific concepts to everyday life. We ensure you will have the skills needed to understand the scientific world around you, including how to understand energy use in the home, wiring a plug, eating and living a healthy life as well as climate change.

For more information on what will be studied and how it will be assessed in Combined Science in year 10 and 11, please refer to our Year 9 GCSE Options Booklet.
