1 pure sc vs comb sc

  1. 1. O
  2. 2. OPTIONSScience Combination Remarks2 Pure Sciences • Most challenging- Chemistry and Physics • Needs to score A1 in Science and Math, and do well in EL, HumanitiesPure Science + Comb.Science • If interested in Biology- Biology + Sc(Phy/Chem) • Involves 3 Science disciplinesCombined Science • Generally easier to score quality- Science(Phy/Chem) grades • Will be able to do one other subject, namely, POA, D&T, F&N, Art
  3. 3. Pure Sciences Science (Phy/Chem)Contents One discipline 2 disciplines; about 75% of contents of pure subjectGrading 100% of one discipline 50% of Sc Physics 50% of Sc ChemWritten 80% of total 85% of totalExam Less recall questions More recall questions More application Less application questions, including questions data-based questionsPractical 20% of total 15% of total Exam
  4. 4. PRACTICAL EXAMINATION Pure Sciences Science (Phy/Chem) SPA (20%) One Practical Exam3 Assessments throughout (15%) 2 years – End of Sec 4- Performing & Observing One question each for- Analysing Physics and Chemistry- Planning Investigations(involves checklist for assessing skills)
  5. 5. SCHOOL-BASED SCIENCE PRACTICAL ASSESSMENTCandidates will be assessed in the following skill sets:Skill Set 1 Performing and Observing- perform an experiment using familiar apparatus, materials and techniques safely and methodically- make relevant and accurate observations or measurements- record results in an appropriate mannerSkill Set 2 Analysing- process results,- identify and comment on a key source of error- draw conclusions consistent with obtained resultsSkill Set 3 Planning- analyse a practical problem and produce an appropriate procedure for the investigation
  6. 6. How to decide ?1. Ability in Science2. Interest in Science3. Career choice4. Post-secondary options
