Benefits of Studying Cambridge Co-ordinated Sciences

Our Cambridge IGCSE Co-ordinated Sciences homeschooling course will give your child the opportunity to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics within a scientifically coherent syllabus. Co-ordinated Sciences counts as two subjects both for examination and for fees.  Note however that the exam may not be taken alongside single subject Biology, Chemistry or Physics because of the overlap in syllabus content.

Your child will learn about the basic principles of each subject through a mix of theoretical and practical studies. As well as focusing on individual sciences, the course will better enable an understanding of our technological world and an informed interest in science and scientific developments. It is a good option if you would like your child to have a grounding in science rather than to take the individual science subjects.

Andrew Yeoh Homeschooling Parent, Melbourne, Australia

Wolsey Hall Oxford's IGCSE courses are excellent for students who wish to homeschool. The step by step programme of study, with designated textbooks and online resources ensured that my daughter understood the concepts and their application in a logical manner. She also benefitted from completing the assignments and past exam papers. She worked hard... asking questions, getting feedback from her Tutors and sharpening her exam technique. Without the Wolsey Hall Oxford programme, she would not have achieved her fantastic results (six A*'s in her IGCSEs in 2016).
