biology

There are compulsory fieldwork experiences in HSC Biology and Earth and Environmental Science.
No. It is a one-unit Year 12 course..
No more than 6 units of Science in Year 11 and 7 units of Science in Year 12.
You can choose up to two sciences.
Both the IBDP and HSC courses include hands-on practical work and secondary sourced work.
Choose whatever interests you. If you select one for a perceived scaling advantage, you might not be motivated to do well if you don’t enjoy it. The critical thinking and problem solving in Science applies to everyday life. The skills that you learn in science will support you in every aspect of your future life – even if, at the moment, you are not sure if you will study Science at tertiary level.
Firstly, a curiosity about the living world. Students who have strong literacy skills can do very well at Biology. While there is some numeracy required in this course it is not at a high level.
A love for the environment and Earth sciences is key. Students require numeracy skills and skills in analyzing and interpreting data.

Students who choose Physics must enjoy the course. They require stronger mathematics skills and problem-solving skills in order to do well in this course.
There are two levels within course to choose from (HSC has one level for each course). The course content is slightly different between HSC and IBDP for each of the sciences and the assessment is different between the courses.
