Level 1 Science SBP

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr N. Marsh

01SBP is a Science course for students wanting to take only Biology and Physics.

Students will choose ONE of the three options offered, based on their Science interests and career pathway.

This course will be taught in three trimesters. In the 1st trimester, two topics will be assessed internally.

Students will then choose one Biology and one Physics topic for Trimester 2 and 3. Some topics will be assessed internally, others will be assessed externally.
