Contribution: 1/3 of the overall mark for the course.
This paper includes synoptic questions that draw on any of the topics in the specification as well as the core practicals studied throughout the course.
Note: Overall, a minimum of 20% of the marks across the three papers will be awarded for mathematics at Level 2 or above.
Science Practical Endorsement: In addition to the three written exams at the end of the course, the course offers a Science Practical Endorsement which is composed of 18 Core Practicals that are taught as part of the two year course. These are designed to allow students to learn a range of practical skills and apply key experimental techniques, thus developing both a conceptual and theoretical understanding of experimental methods. As such they also constitute a key element within the Paper 3 exam.
