GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy

  • Teaching from: September 2016
  • Exams from: June 2018
  • Specification code: 8464
  • QAN code: 601/8758/X

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: Synergy.)

It’s similar to the current core and Additional Science GCSEs, and a double award: equivalent to two GCSEs.

The subject content and practicals also appear in our separate science GCSEs, giving you teaching flexibility.

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