This course will enable you to obtain an Edexcel iGCSE in Combined Science.
The Science iGCSE is a double award qualification, meaning it is worth two International GCSEs instead of one.
If you are wanting to gain entry to a job or further education then the combined course is better suited. If you wish to pursue a more specific scientific career then look at doing separate sciences.
The combined science course studies physics, chemistry and biology together but slightly reduced content to the separate sciences.
