Why study BTEC Science?
This level 3 qualification encompasses all three aspects of the sciences; chemistry, physics and biology, enabling a broad spectrum of knowledge to be achieved with a more practical ‘hands on’ approach. The course deepens the understanding of key concepts encountered at KS4 and develops a more vocational focus of the sciences. Key skills in scientific technique, such as experimental skills as well as interpretation and evaluation skills are developed through the means of continual assessment.
What can I do with BTEC Science after Sixth Form?
A BTEC National Level 3 in Applied Science will provide a broad-based science education in combination with transferrable skills which would lead into higher education or science-based careers.
The extended diploma course carries UCAS points equivalent to 3 A-levels and is accepted by over 95% of universities.
BTEC Science Extras
