GCSE Further Additional Science Resources

GCSE Further Additional Science offers a flexible solution to gaining three science GCSEs.

What are the key benefits of Further Additional Science?

  • More choice – students don't have to sit all nine exams at the end of year 11, for example, they can study all the content of GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics by entering GCSE Science A, GCSE Additional Science and GCSE Further Additional Science.
  • More flexibility – students can start a course leading to two Science GCSEs and 'top-up' with GCSE Further Additional Science to achieve three GCSEs.
  • Equivalent to a single GCSE in Science – students will study the subject content of the Unit 3s in the current GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications.
