About GCSE Combined Science: Synergy 8465 Syllabus
Our philosophy: science for all
We believe that science has something to offer every student, and that everyone needs some level of relevant scientific understanding.
That’s why we have a suite of science qualifications for Key Stage 4 – so that students of all abilities and all aspirations can realise their potential.
Two sections for two teachers
Teachers have told us that:
We have divided the content into two main sections, which contain connections between areas of biology, physics and chemistry that sit together as part of good science.
Life and environmental sciences (4.1–4.4)
Physical sciences (4.5–4.8)
Both sections include topics that draw together and apply key concepts. Examples in Life and environmental sciences include Radiation and risk and The Earth’s atmosphere. In these topics, earlier work on atomic structure, waves and electromagnetic radiation is used to explain the effects of different types of radiation on human tissues and on the climate. An example in Physical sciences is Resources of materials and energy, which introduces life cycle assessment as a way of evaluating the impacts of using materials and energy to manufacture useful products.
Inspire students with rich practical activities
There’s no better way to learn about science than through purposeful practical activities as part of day-to-day teaching and learning. Our 21 required practicals:
You’ll find even more support and guidance in our practical handbook, which includes recommendations and advice from teachers in the trial.
Straightforward exams, so students can give straightforward answers
We’ve improved our question papers. You’ll find that our exams:
