Unleash the joy of science with OCR
Enjoy the freedom and excitement of teaching science qualifications that help you inspire students of all abilities.
Visit us on stand D31 and DS62, at the ASE Annual Conference in January 2013, to find out about our range of Science qualifications from Entry Level, GCSE, Cambridge Nationals, Cambridge Technicals and A Levels.
Our Cambridge Nationals in Science is a vocationally related qualification that equips students with sound, specialist scientific knowledge and skills for everyday use.
Science stripped bare
At next year’s event we will also see the return of The Naked Scientists who help people enjoy science and at the same time, have some fun. You can meet Dr Chris Smith from the award winning BBC weekly radio show The Naked Scientists on our stand and see him bring classroom experiments to life.

AQA: Working with you to provide inspiring lessons
Everything we do at AQA is developed by teachers, for teachers. For example, teacher input was integral to our revised schemes of work. Our newly accredited Further Additional Science qualification supports you through the move from modular to linear assessment.
If you haven’t already had a chance to share your thoughts, here’s a fresh opportunity. At the ASE's Annual Conference you can meet the people developing our courses, discuss your ideas and learn how to get more involved.
We hope to see you on stand D36 or at one of our workshops at the ASE Annual Conference in 2013!
