A strong background in a wide range of physical and life science subjects can provide an opening for many careers and Higher Education courses.

The Extended Diploma contains 13 units studied over two years. They cover a broad spectrum of topics across Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Electronics. The Extended Diploma is equivalent to three full A Levels. In the first year, all students will study the same 7 units, providing them with a good grounding in all sciences. In the second year, students will study a range of different units.

Some of the possible units studied include:

• Physiology of Human Body Systems

• Genetics and Genetic Engineering

• Practical Chemical Analysis

• Indutrial Chemical Reactions

• Astronomy and Space Science

• Electrical Circuits and their Applications

How will it be delivered?

Over the course of the two years, four of the units will be assessed through external exams, where one of which is an open-book style exam. The rest of the 13 units will be internally assessed through written work in a portfolio and successful work is awarded a Pass, Merit or Distinction. All internal assessments are subject to external verification and all units must be successfully completed in order to obtain the Extended Diploma.
