Level 2 Science

L2SCI
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Dryburgh

Level 2 Science is internally assessed and has standards in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Sustainability.

What will I learn and how will I learn?
The course consists of 16 Level 2 Credits.  Students will be assessed by carrying out experiments, practising laboratory techniques and doing research.

Conditions of Assessment
Most assessment will be completed with a mixture of in class and out of class time. However, some standards require work only to be completed in class time. This is to ensure authenticity - that all work that you submit is your own. It is important that you understand the conditions of assessment for these standards and that you direct any questions about when and how you're able to work on them to your teacher.

The teachers will be working together to get the best results for students as individuals from their year of study. 

Submitting Internal Assessments
It is important that students take note of the due dates for their internal assessments. All internal assessments must be submitted on or prior to the due date, unless prior approval has been granted for special circumstances (refer to NCEA guidelines or talk to their teacher about this). Assessments that are submitted after the due date, without prior approval, will receive a Not Achieved.

Resubmissions and Reassessments
Further assessment opportunities MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE due to the full content nature of this course.
