Why AQA for Applied Science?

Our Level 3 vocational qualifications are a practical introduction to science, and support progression to further study or employment. They build on the strengths of our outgoing A-level Applied Science specification.

Developed together with teachers, schools, colleges and higher education institutions, they help learners to develop fundamental scientific knowledge and practical skills.

DfE 16 to 19 performance tables and UCAS tariff points

Our Applied General qualifications are included in the performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications aimed at students aged 16 to 19, as published by the Department for Education (DfE). They also attract UCAS tariff points

I hope that schools and teachers will fully embrace the scope of what could be some really exciting work for their students.
