About the GCSE Combined Science Trilogy
As you study the biology part of this course you will be able to look at the origins of life and the organic composition of the human body and its functions and also you will learn about animals and plants and their organic composition and their lives stages. As for the Chemistry part, it is based on the study of the elements and atoms that form the basis of everything around us and their chemical and physical properties, as well as their reactions and their integration with each other and their compounds, and how to use chemical processes in the development and prosperity of human life. On the other hand, the Physics part, the student studies the power, movement, matter, energy and its sources, and the way it is converted into usable and controllable energy by man, as well as the study of radiation and its uses in modern technology, in addition to studying astronomy and other interesting topics in physics, biology and chemistry.
In this course, you will carry out several practical works which revolve around learning the basic lab equipment and how to use them to experiment scientific theories to determine their validity and to understand the importance of work accuracy and laboratory safety as an essential part of the syllabi. This course is suitable for students who have an interest in progressing to a non-science university degree in the future. However, student who plans to join a science or engineering university degree or other related disciplines is recommended studying the biology, chemistry and physics as independent GCSE subjects rather than studying them Combined in one course. Please note that students are not allowed to combine the “GCSE Combined Science Trilogy” with any other GCSE individual science subjects including biology, chemistry or physics.

The GCSE in Combined Science Trilogy gives the student the opportunity to progress to the AS-level to any of the 3 subjects including biology, chemistry or physics. The second option is to add this GCSE qualification together with another four GCSE subjects to qualify you to meet with most of British universities Foundation-year admission criteria (the number of GCSE subjects needed for admission depends on each university requirements).
Some benefits for studying the Combined Science Trilogy GCSE is that it is a double weighted qualification. It means British universities consider this qualification as equivalent to two individual GCSE’s. For example if the admission requirements to the university are 5 GCSE qualifications (i.e. succeeding in 5 different GCSE subjects), then succeeding in the Combined Science Trilogy GCSE course would mean all what you need to study additionally are another 3 GCSE subjects instead of 4 in order to meet the requirements of the university admission to foundation year.
Duration of the Combined Science Trilogy GCSE Course
The duration of of our GCSE Combined Science is 20 months, however, student has the flexibility to finish it earlier. Each GCSE course would need approximately 450 study hours for each course; hence you may estimate the time needed for completing your course as below:
- For 16 months study plan: you would need 8 hours a week for the GCSE Combined Science
- For 12 months study plan: you would need 11 hours a week GCSE Combined Science
- For 9 months study plan: you would need about 16 hours a week GCSE Combined Science
For each of the cases above we have allowed for 8 weeks revision period before the exam which we strongly recommend in order to revise and practice past exams papers. Other factors to be taken into considerations when thinking of the duration needed to complete your course are things such as the number of subjects you study concurrently whether you are employed or fully dedicated to studying the courses, your initial English language skills in reading and writing and other life commitments.
