1) IGCSE Physical Science: Content Overview 

Cambridge IGCSE Physical Science enables learners to:

    • increase their understanding of the technological world
    • take an informed interest in scientific matters
    • recognise the usefulness (and limitations) of scientific method, and how to apply this to other disciplines and in everyday life
    • develop relevant attitudes, such as a concern for accuracy and precision, objectivity, integrity, enquiry, initiative and inventiveness
    • develop an interest in, and care for, the environment
    • better understand the influence and limitations placed on scientific study by society, economy, technology, ethics, the community and the environment
    • develop an understanding of the scientific skills essential for both further study and everyday life.

Physical Science Aims:

The aims describe the purposes of a course based on this syllabus.You can deliver some of the aims using suitable local, international or historical examples and applications, or through collaborative experimental work.

The aims are to:

  • provide an enjoyable and worthwhile educational experience for all learners, whether or not they go on to study science beyond this level
  • enable learners to acquire sufficient knowledge and understanding to:
    • become confident citizens in a technological world and develop an informed interest in scientific matters
    • be suitably prepared for studies beyond Cambridge IGCSE
  • allow learners to recognise that science is evidence-based and understand the usefulness, and the limitations, of scientific method
  • develop skills that:
    • are relevant to the study and practice of science
    • are useful in everyday life
    • encourage a systematic approach to problem-solving
    • encourage efficient and safe practice
    • encourage effective communication through the language of science
  • develop attitudes relevant to science such as:
    • concern for accuracy and precision
    • objectivity
    • integrity
    • enquiry
    • initiative
    • inventiveness
  • enable learners to appreciate that:
    • science is subject to social, economic, technological, ethical and cultural influences and limitations
    • the applications of science may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the community and the environment.

2) Syllabus Outline:
