OCR 21st Century Further Additional Science

About this course

This new GCSE course consists of what used to be called the extension (third) modules of the individual sciences. There is no new content. The purpose of this is to allow students who wish to get three science GCSEs to have the option of doing the three at different times (Core Science, Additional Science and Further Additional) rather than with Biology, Chemistry and Physics where all the modules of each science have to be done at the same time. So you end up with three GCSEs, but called Science, Additional and Further Additional instead of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
