Triple Science : Equitable or Elitist?

Education in Science - Issue 273 out now!

This issue investigates different routes at GCSE science. Is triple science creating inequality of opportunity? Are we setting our students off on different routes with the knowledge that they do not have a chance of ever reaching the same summit?

The feature article is led by Dr Yeasmin Mortuza who is a member of the ASE London Region with contributions from other thought leaders. Yeasmin is an independent educational consultant specialising in secondary science. She has been a triple science adviser for seven years, under the DfE funded triple science support programme. This article features anonymised data from schools with which Yeasmin has worked.
