Students will be tracked through Autumn term testing before final entry decisions are made. Tier of entry

Double or Triple award + Year 10 Science EXAM ENTRIES There are 2 tiers of entry Higher A*-D Foundation C-G The easiest way for some students to

get a B grade is to do foundation theory entries in Y10 and a good practical exam in Year 10 or 11 It is much easier to score a high UMS on the foundation paper than the higher paper Re sitting at a higher tier is possible in Year 11 to improve grades (Best mark of papers sat counts!) + Year 10 Science What is in the

exam? Examinable science content Assessment of practical work Focus on scientific literacy Increased Numeracy Demand Grades Awarded For the Double award course Interim grades will now be awarded.
