GCSE Combined Science: Synergy

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2018
  • Specification code: 8465
  • QAN code: 601/8760/8

This is one of seven qualifications in our Science for all suite, developed with teachers to inspire and challenge students of all abilities and aspirations. (See also GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy.)

It will inspire students of all abilities. The subject content is split into two sections so it can be easily taught by two teachers, and there’s no overlapping content – so you’ll have time to introduce stimulating contexts.

We give you guidance on the required practicals, and our improved exams have fewer words, fewer contexts, and questions that increase in difficulty.
