Examination Board - CCEA

The specification involves a new approach to Double Award Science at GCSE by incorporating the skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works.

  • We set the controlled assessment tasks for the Practical Skills unit. Students must complete two tasks.
  • Students can re-sit each unit once.  It is also possible to progress to the study of science and related courses at GCE Advanced Level and Advanced Subsidiary Level.
