There will also be a range of science units (depending on the Pathway you choose) that focus on underpinning knowledge for many of the Level 3 courses that you may wish to progress to.
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed by your tutors throughout the year at the completion of each unit. There will be short tests, research projects, essays, presentations, etc.
