The GCSE Science specification develops scientific knowledge and understanding, and then illustrates it in reference to context. The content is presented in subject units, and biology, chemistry and physics can be taught separately by subject specialists. The units are: Unit 1 – Biology 1 Unit 2 – Chemistry 1 Unit 3 – Physics 1 Unit 4 – Controlled Assessment Unit Assessment is by written papers and a Controlled Assessment Unit.

GCSE Separate Science
The GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications all have three units, which all have rich and relevant content. These provide a firm foundation for students who want to go on to study separate sciences at A Level. Assessment is by three written papers, one per unit, and a Controlled Assessment Unit. It’s easy to deliver the GCSE Separate Science option with two flexible routes. Choose either to buy GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry and GCSE Physics which each contain three units or you can choose to use the Separate Science Student Book that covers just units B3, C3 and P3 alongside your existing resources for GCSE Science and GCSE Additional Science.
