Required Practicals Questions (March Edition)

When reading the examiners' reports for the 2018 and 2019 GCSE Science exams it is clear that there is a good deal of room for improvement in students' responses to questions relating to the Required Practical Activities (RPAs). For example, in the 12 Foundation Tier papers for the AQA Separate Sciences and Combined Science examinations, more than 50% of the marks relating to the RPAs were scored on two papers only. This situation was particularly acute in the Combined Science papers. While the picture was slightly more encouraging for the Higher tier papers, it was only on very few occasions that significantly more than 50% of the available marks were scored.

Science in the News

There are two main aims to this monthly EzyScience newsletter:

  • To demonstrate how the science our students study at GCSE relates to the science being conducted every day around the World and to show just how relevant their GCSE science studies are. As well as encouraging a general interest in science we would also hope to help prepare students for those unexpected questions that, at first glance, are not connected to the content they have been taught and which always raise such a stink on Twitter immediately after particular papers have been sat!
  • To provide students with opportunities to practise the more generic data analysis and communication skills that can turn a good exam performance into an outstanding one.

Getting through the content

When the latest science specifications were first released a number of concerns arose immediately about both their breadth and depth. ‘How to teach greater and more difficult content in the same time?’ was a common question heard whenever science teachers got together. The dilemma faced by teachers is that they are expected to get through more ‘stuff’, while at the same time supporting students in mastering more complex skills.
