SCI201

Level 2 Science 201

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Skevington

This course is made up of standards from Earth and Space Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is designed as a possible pathway for students who might do a university degree or just have a general interest in Science.

The course has 2 Externals and 4 Internals. An advantage of this course is that students can sit the two Externals (Biology and Chemistry) on two different days and can use the entire three hours to do one standard, which makes it easy to achieve at a higher level to gain course and certificate endorsement.

Due to clashes with standards this is a standalone Science course and is not intended to be studied with Sci202, Bio201, Chem201, Phy201 or ESS201.

Recommended Prior Learning

Students must gain at least 12 credits in Level 1 Science from either Sci101 or Sci100, of which a minimum of 3 NCEA credits must be from the external examination.

Pathway

The career pathways are Engineering Technician, Surveying, Construction Management, Teaching, Animal Management & Welfare, Vet Nurse, Conservation & Biodiversity Management, Sport Management & Coaching, Scientist, Researcher and Health
