3E Science

  1. 1. SCIENCE DEPARTMENTSCIENCE DEPARTMENT • SUBJECTS CURRENTLY OFFERED : a) Pure Biology – no more than 25 places b) Pure Chemistry – max 40 places c) Pure Physics – max 40 places d) Sci (Chemistry / Physics) – 3E2, 3E3
  2. 2. What to expect of :What to expect of : a) 3 Express Pure Sciences Biology ; Chemistry ; Physics • In depth study of each science • Minimum 5 periods per week • Article reviews and research projects • Science Practical Assessment (SPA) – assessment of 3 skills over 2 years, no practical exams.
  3. 3. What to expect of :What to expect of : b) 3 Express Sci (Chemistry /Physics) • Study of 2 sciences combined as 1 mark • Content is ¾ that of pure sciences • Minimum 4 periods per week per science. • Will have to take practical exam in Sec 4E or Sec 5NA.
  4. 4. CriteriaCriteria 3 Express Pure Sciences • Consistent B3 and above (Minimum 70% and above) for sec 2 science overall • Overall percentage of 70% and above for pupils to offer triple sciences. (Biology as the 8th subject in 3E1) • Keen interest in the science subject • Have the determination and self discipline for consistent revision.
  5. 5. Relevance to Further EducationRelevance to Further Education a) Junior Colleges • Better adaptability to the Sciences at H2 level if pure sciences are offered at ‘O’ levels. • Taking of sci(phy/chem) will provide foundation for JC Science as well b) Polytechnics • Engineering courses require pupils to take Physics (pure or sci(phy) • Biotech or Biomedical courses require Chemistry (pure or sci(chem) & having Bio is advantage. • Offering Sci(Phy/Chem) can meet the criteria for most courses.
  6. 6. GCE ‘O’ LevelGCE ‘O’ Level Science can be included as a subject in L1 R5 • L1 – EL/ Higher MT • R1 – Humanities/Higher Art/ Higher Music • R2 – Maths / ScienceScience • R3 – Humanities/Higher Art or Music/ Maths / ScienceScience • R4 – Any ‘O’ level subject • R5 – Any ‘O’ level subject
  7. 7. GCE ‘O’ LevelGCE ‘O’ Level Science can be included as a subject in L1 R4 • L1 – EL/ Higher MT • R1 – Humanities/ Higher Art or Music/ Maths / ScienceScience • R2 – Humanities/ Higher Art or Music/ Maths / ScienceScience
  8. 8. Please Note :Please Note : • Find out from seniors about expectations of course • Investigate further on what courses / institutes you wish to go to • Decide based on your strengths and interest, and not your friends’ decision. • Use the choices wisely.
  9. 9. Polytechnic CoursesPolytechnic Courses Science is needed as a subject (R2 subject) for the following courses : a) Architecture Courses b) Science – based courses c) Technology courses -- the above are 3 out of 4 main schools of courses available in polytechnics.
