Carmel College has a strong tradition of successful science teaching over many years. Your expert tutors will give you extensive support and guidance throughout your time on the course both during lessons and through the college tutorial system. We pride ourselves on taking a personal interest in your success. The course covers all three sciences of Biology, Chemistry and Physics but in an "applied" context. That means you will not only learn the science but also how it is used in real life organisations.
Applied Science Resources:-
• A fully equipped laboratory suitable for a full range of chemistry, physics and biology work plus individual practical science investigations of different kinds.
• Specialist biology physics and chemistry equipment is also available for use in Applied Science, by arrangement with the separate science departments.
• Access is available to a fully connected computer room and to wireless laptops that can be used for a variety of purposes in the laboratory.
What our students say......"Applied Science covers all three of the core science subjects so it is a very varied course. The course suits me because of the amount of coursework." (Tom Hughes)
BTEC Diploma (equivalent to 2 A Levels)
The BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Applied Science qualification consists of 6 mandatory units plus 6 optional units spread over 2 years. The combination of units provide for a combined total of 120 credits which is broadly equivalent to two GCE A Levels. Helping learners to develop a range of technical and personal skills in preparation for working life, or progression to University, the course will appeal to learners who prefer portfolio-based assessment covering a wide variety of practical scientific investigations.
