Our Cambridge IGCSE Combined Science homeschooling course will give your child the opportunity to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics within a scientifically coherent syllabus. Combined Science is a single award and will count as one subject. Note that this course will not provide sufficient background to enable your child to move on to A Level in any of the Sciences. Note also that this subject 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 courses will enable your child to better understand the technological world we live in and take an informed interest in science and scientific developments. This course is a good option if you would like your child to have a grounding in science rather than to take the individual science subjects.Apply Now

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).
