Key Stage 3 Biology
Under the National Curriculum, Biology goes under the title Life Processes & Living Things.
While studying this science you will cover eight main topics:
1. Cells & Cell Functions,
3. Breathing & Respiration,
4. Movement, Reproduction & Breathing,
5. Health & Health Issues,
6. Green Plants as Organisms,
7. Classification & Feeding Relationships of Living Things & Their Environment,
8. Variation, Adaptation & Competition.
Chemistry is the study of the elements and how they react with each other to form new substances. The elements are shown on the periodic table which is arranged in order of atomic number. A copy of the periodic table can be found from the link given below. For GCSE chemistry it is important to know and understand the electronic number of the first 20 elements.
Most students follow physics at GCSE level as a part of Double Science, whilst some take physics as a part of the Triple Sciences. Common to both is the ability to recall and apply various formulae. A copy of these formulae is available in PDF format, by using the link below. Double Science students do not need to remember the link between force and momentum contained in the list.
The information available below is essential for A-Level physics. You need to be familiar with SI Prefixes and their numerical value in particular the prefixes tera, giga, mega, kilo, milli, micro, nano and pico. Also there is a copy of the Greek alphabet, many of these letters are used to represent different physical constants in both science and mathematics. You should be able to recall and apply the correct letter for a given quantity in both science and mathematics. You will not be expected to remember any physical constants such as the acceleration due to gravity these will be given to you somewhere on the examination paper.
To view these documents you need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer.
For A-Level physics examinations candidates are expected to recall and use a range of formulae, which are not provided in the formulae booklet given during all A-Level physics examinations. The link below provides a list of the formulae you are expected to recall and use during your exams.
