AQA GCSE Science
It may feel like you’re heading towards even more change, but don’t worry – we’re here to help provide you with all the resources and support you need.
Our new course offers the simplest and clearest approach to the new AQA GCSE Science specifications. We’re listening to teachers to create a new GCSE science course that builds on the features you like about what you currently use, whilst incorporating all the features you feel are missing. So now you need to change your resources to match the new specifications, you can choose the best resources.

More assessment, better engagement and extra help with delivery

What do I do if I need to start teaching the new specification before January 2011?
We are providing early material to schools that need to start teaching the new specification in September 2010. To receive a free sample of this early material, order an Evaluation Pack. You will automatically get the free advance material as well as the Evaluation Pack. Also, as the specification development continues we will continue to make information online as early as possible to help you with your early planning.

So what is changing?
AQA is revising the Science, Additional Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications to comply with new Ofqual criteria and bring them in line with the other subjects. The main changes are that coursework is being replaced by controlled assessment and there will also only be one core Science specification. This will be developed from the content of AQA’s current Science A and Science B specifications.
