What level/s of CE and CASE do you offer in Science?

Modified on Thu, 02 Nov 2023 at 04:36 PM

We offer Science exams for CE at 11+ and 13+, as well as CASE exams at 13+.  


Candidates who take CE Science at 11+ will sit one combined paper, testing the three disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics with equal weighting. At 11+, it is expected that material in Key Stage 1 has already been fully covered.


We offer the CE science 13+ exam at Foundation and Core level. At Foundation level, candidates will sit one paper with approximately equal numbers of questions based on the 13+ biology, chemistry and physics specifications. We advise schools to consider entering candidates for the Foundation paper if they are expected to achieve less than an average of 40% on the three Core papers. At Core level, candidates will sit three separate papers in biology, chemistry and physics. 


Please note that at 13+, knowledge of the 11+ specification is assumed and may be examined in the context of questions based on the 13+ specification.


The CASE assessment for Science is based on the Level 3 13+ Science specification and is designed to challenge the most able candidates. The exam is divided into three sections covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
