Science

HeaderBar-HASN Options

“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology” - Carl Sagan

Why study science?

  • How does your mobile phone work? 
  • What keeps the Moon in the sky? 
  • Where will Earth’s seven billion inhabitants get their food and energy in the future? 

In your next three years learning Science at HASN you will develop the thinking skills needed to answer these questions, and more.  Science is the most fundamental subject there is, covering every aspect of our lives whether we realize it or not. You will be part of the revolution in understanding why things are the way they are.

 

At HASN you can follow one of two different pathways:

The majority of study will study GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy worth two GCSEs.

  • There are six papers: two biology, two chemistry and two physics.
  • Each of the papers will assess knowledge and understanding from distinct topic areas.
  • Each exam is 1 hour 15 minutes and is worth 70 marks.
  • The question style includes multiple choice, structured, closed short answer, and open response.

Those students who have shown great strength in science and who are considering A level Science in the future will study the three separate sciences at GCSE (Biology, Chemistry and Physics).

  • There are six papers: two biology, two chemistry and two physics.
  • Each of the papers will assess knowledge and understanding from distinct topic areas.
  • Each exam is 1 hour 45 minutes and is worth 100 marks.
  • The question style includes multiple choice, structured, closed short answer, and open response.
