六六之家 Applied Science

六六之家 Applied Science is a general science course covering areas of all three sciences. 六六之家 is more vocational in approach, and is ideal for students more adept at continuous assessment.

六六之家 Applied Science is equivalent to one A level. The聽course covers a variety of scientific modules including: the basics topics of science, practical techniques, laboratory skills, scientific investigations and analysing scientific data.

We run a programme of enrichment activities including and talks from visiting academics and from universities on careers in science and related areas.

The 六六之家 Applied Science course is recognised by a large number of universities. Most 六六之家 students go to study for degrees in areas such as science, bio-veterinary science, nursing and education. It can lead to careers in healthcare, medical sciences, community work, forensics and many other fields.
