Year 11

Year 11 students will be studying courses from the OCR GCSE Twenty First Century Science Suite which include Core Science, Additional Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Students have covered all of the required subject content for the course throughout Years 9 and 10. They will therefore spend the first term back completing their controlled assessment before revising and preparing thoroughly for their public examinations at the end of the academic year.

Revision Guides
As a department we recommend the Letts Lonsdale books, although others are available. They come with a workbook containing exam style questions which can be worked through as part of a revision schedule.

We will be looking into ordering revision guides so that they can be purchased through the school during the first term after the summer holidays.

Please be aware that if your child is predicted a grade less than C, then these guides will not be appropriate. In this case, your child can speak to their teacher who will recommend a guide for them.

If you wish to purchase your own revision guide independently, here are the relevant ISBN numbers:

Past Papers
Past examination papers can be located on the OCR website using the following links:

Core Science
Additional Science

From 2014, examinations in Core Science and Additional Science are only available in subject specific papers. Previously, papers that covered all three subject areas (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) were available. These are still useful for revision as you can select the questions for the subject that you are revising.
