GCSE / IGCSE Combined Science Exams Not Included

The word "science" probably brings to mind many different images: a textbook, white lab coats and microscopes, an astronomer peering through a telescope, a naturalist in the rainforest, Einstein's equations scribbled on a chalkboard, the launch of the space shuttle, bubbling beakers …. all of those images reflect some aspect of science, but none of them provides a full picture because science is such a broad subject. 

In addition to knowledge in the field of science, you will develop transferable skills including:

  • Development of scientific thinking
  • Experimental skills and strategies
  • Analysis and evaluation
  • Scientific vocabulary, quantities, units, symbols and nomenclature

All about Science:

  • Science is both knowledge and a process. 
  • Science is discovery. 
  • Science is useful. 
  • Science is ongoing. 
  • Science will never be "finished."
  • Science is a global human endeavour. People all over the world participate in the process of science. And you can too!

Our GCSE/IGCSE Combined Science including exams courses is a starting point for every career in science-related fields.  Our course combines the requirements for both GCSE and IGCSE.'

Combined science covers Biology, Chemistry and Physics.  Read on to find out about each subject in more detail.

Further study after GCSE or IGCSE is A-Level, IA-Level, degree level and beyond. Qualifications in science can lead to hundreds of different exciting and rewarding careers.

Modules

Your course starts with two short units that cover everything you need to know about Combined Science, all about the exams, the differences between GCSE and IGCSE, and the practical activities and includes some great advice on how to successfully study online.  There are details on the exams and how they are structured as well as links to the qualification specifications.

Units 3 to 11 cover the biology part of the course, and include the principles of biological science:

  • Cell Biology
  • Organisation
  • Infection and response
  • Bioenergetics
  • Homeostasis and response
  • Inheritance, variation and evolution
  • Ecology
  • The Differences Between Living and Non-living Things
  • Carbohydrates, Lipids and Proteins
  • The Basic Concepts of DNA and Genetics

Moving on to Chemistry, units 12 to 22 cover the scientific discipline of understanding the elements, atoms, molecules and ions, the building blocks of the universe.  You will get the chance to study their composition, structure, properties and behaviours and the changes they undergo during chemical reactions.

  • Atomic structure and the periodic table
  • Bonding, structure, and the properties of matter
  • Quantitative chemistry
  • Chemical changes
  • Energy changes
  • The rate and extent of chemical change
  • Organic chemistry
  • Chemical analysis
  • Chemistry of the atmosphere

Finally, the course is completed with the Physics section. Physics is the natural science that studies matter, its fundamental constituents, its motion and behaviour through space and time, and the related entities of energy and force. Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and its main goal is to understand how the universe behaves. is a diverse and ever-evolving subject. Physics has helped us understand everything from the human body to the natural world and climate change.  Physics opens doors to some of the most exciting, cutting-edge, rewarding jobs in the world. From cancer treatment to tackling climate change, and gaming to robotics and artificial intelligence, physics and physicists are on the front line, helping to shape the future.

In the physics part of your course, you will learn all about:

  • Forces and motion
  • Electricity
  • Waves
  • Energy resources and energy transfers
  • Solids, liquids and gases
  • Magnetism and electromagnetism
  • Radioactivity and particles
  • Astrophysics

 At the end of your course are a set of mock exams for GCSE and a set for IGCSE.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements required to enrol on this course.

Average completion timeframe

The average time it takes to complete the course is 18 months.

Exams required

Exams are not included.

Is Membership Required?

No membership is required to enrol on this course.

Extension Rules

£40 for six months, maximum of twice. If expired more than six months ago, or have already had two extensions, then they need to restart the course and pay again.

Course Fees

All course fees, inclusive of all payment plans including our Premium Credit Limited option, must be settled before certification can be ordered.

*You will have access to the course for 24 months.

You will be assessed regularly through assignments marked by your tutor and at the end with the mock exams. Please note that exams are not included in this course.

Both qualifications are worth two GCSEs.

Frequently Asked Questions

In GCSE, Combined Science dives into all three sciences: Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, but at a broader level compared to separate sciences. It's a great option if you want a general understanding of science or are unsure about specialising in a specific field later.
Our GCSE Combined Science course covers a wide range of topics in biology, chemistry, and physics. In biology, you will learn about the basic building blocks of life (cells), how organisms are organised, how they defend themselves against disease, and how they obtain energy. You will also explore heredity, variation, and evolution, as well as the differences between living and non-living things. In chemistry, you will learn about the structure of atoms and the periodic table, how elements bond together to form compounds, and how chemical reactions work. You will also explore quantitative chemistry, energy changes in chemical reactions, and the chemistry of organic compounds, the atmosphere, and everyday materials. In physics, you will learn about forces and motion, electricity, waves, energy resources and transfers, the states of matter, magnetism and electromagnetism, radioactivity and particles, and astrophysics. The course is designed to give you a broad understanding of the three major sciences, and to help you develop your scientific skills.
Instead of three individual qualifications, you'll receive two GCSE grades based on your combined performance across all the science topics.
A Combined Science GCSE opens doors to diverse pathways in the UK. While not as specialised as separate sciences, it provides a solid foundation for further studies and various careers. You could opt for specific science A-Levels (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) if you want to delve deeper into a particular field. However, Combined Science also complements various A-Levels like Psychology, Environmental Science, and Engineering, or vocational diplomas in related fields. Many apprenticeships and technical courses also accept Combined Science, leading to exciting careers in healthcare, engineering, and more. In terms of career options, you can apply for technician roles in labs, hospitals, or environmental agencies with the scientific understanding gained in your GCSE. You could also explore careers in agriculture, horticulture, or even veterinary nursing where science knowledge is an asset. While not directly science-based, many industries value scientific literacy and critical thinking honed by Combined Science.
Not in this course option, but the course material prepares you to complete them. You can add the exams later if you’d like to.
