The Year 10 exam papers will cover content from the Combined Science specification only. This content will be drawn from Biology 1, Chemistry 1 and Physics 1. However, as some students will have started the course in September 2016, not all topics from these papers will be covered. The topics covered will be based on the teaching order laid out in our schemes of work.

A full list of the topics that may be assessed is given below.

Biology
