Year 10 GCSE Science Unit 1 Resits

There will be important compulsory revision sessions for students resitting their Core GCSE Science Unit 1 exam. Read more for full deatils

Dear Parent/Carer,

As you will be aware your child has been entered to re-sit their Core GCSE Science Unit 1 exam on Monday 10th June. They have received several revision sessions over the last few weeks. In addition to this, we will be running a further three compulsory revision sessions to be held on the following consecutive days:
  • Tuesday 4th June (Biology) 3:30pm – 4:30pm
  • Wednesday 5th June (Chemistry) 3:30pm – 4:30pm
  • Thursday 6th June (Physics) 3:30pm – 4:30pm
This re-sit will be very important in determining their overall Core GCSE Science grade. Pupils will need to attain at least a C grade in order to be entered for the Additional Science course next year. Those who do not achieve a C grade will be likely to repeat their Core Science GCSE again next year. As a result they would only achieve one GCSE Science grade at the end of Year 11 as opposed to two GCSE grades.
Yours faithfully
Mr R Dann
Curriculum Coordinator of Science
