Online Science GCSE Combined Trilogy
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.
Studying the AQA GCSE curriculum in Combined Science Trilogy is an appropriate qualification for distance learning in terms of teaching and receiving education and taking the formal examinations. Once you have completed your course, you will have prepared yourself to attend an external formal examinations in any AQA approved examination centers across the UK. if you are living outside the UK, we recommend checking with the nearest British Council branch to you if they offer AQA exams (many of them provide).
Accreditation and course code
The course prepares you to sit for AQA examination in the GCSE in Combined Science Trilogy in any AQA approved examination center across the UK, or if you are living outside the UK then you may check with the nearest British Council branch to you if they offer AQA exams (many doe). The full name of the qualifications is:
AQA GCSE in Combined Science Trilogy (Exam Code: 8464)
Academic requirements: You don't need any previous qualifications to enrol in any of our GCSE courses, you just need some basic maths for this course. For student who needs some mathematics push or brush up, we have designed for them a short course in mathematics preparation to study before starting the course, that is to fill up any gap in maths basics skills. The course is most suitable to applicants who has studied KS3, grade 8 or equivalent
English language requirement: If your first language is English then you may skip this section.
If your first language is Not English and you wish to enrol in our GCSE courses then you are required to take our free online English proficiency test, just follow the on-screen instructions to the end. To take the English proficiency test please click here.
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.
The course is designed to prepare students for the AQA examination in the Combined Science Trilogy GCSE qualification, course code 8464. Full details of the specification can be obtained from AQA’s website or by clicking here. Topics you will learn in your GCSE in Combined Science Trilogy course including:

Duration of the Combined Science Trilogy GCSE Course
The duration of any of our GCSE courses is 16 months, however, student has the flexibility to finish it earlier. Each GCSE course would need approximately 300 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 5 hours a week per each GCSE subject.
- For 12 months study plan: you would need 7 hours a week per 1 subject.
- For 9 months study plan: you would need about 10 hours a week per 1 subject.
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.
It is very important for you to know that your formal exams are externally assessed; that means you won’t be examined by OBA when you complete your study but by the examiner board i.e. by AQA for this course. The marks you achieve in your formal exams counts by 100% toward your qualifications while the ongoing internal exams you take with OBA do not contribute towards your qualification marks.
