Although the changing specifications in GCSE science courses pose challenges, they can also provide new opportunities. The role of practical work and the assessment objectives have been modified in the new curriculum to put greater focus on ‘Working Scientifically’ – students will be assessed on their ability to work and think like scientists, effectively applying their investigative skills in other contexts.
In this session, Ed Walsh looks at what this stipulated practical work may look like in action and considers how to prepare students for the new exams.
