The AQA A Level Environmental Science qualification is gained once both exam papers are successfully completed as well as your fieldwork if you have opted to complete this.
The exams are administered by AQA. As a private candidate you will sit your exams in an exam centre such as a school, college or private tuition centre. You will need to contact the exam centre in good time to make arrangements regarding the fieldwork.
In addition, there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the course materials, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty, as well as a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them. These are for your own information, and do not need to be shown to your course tutor.
The content is all online and accessed via our Learning Management System (LMS).
The online e-book has many features that cannot be printed such as embedded videos, forums and interactive tests.
With the tutor support option there are Tutor Marked Assessments which you access and submit through the online system.
A Level Environmental Science covers key areas like the living environment, the physical environment, energy resources, biological resources, sustainability and environmental pollution.
