The two-year research study was carried out by the Northern Ireland Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA), starting in November, 1995. Its purpose was, firstly, given the range of GCSE Science courses available, to examine pupils’ experiences of the transition from Science at Key Stage 4 to the study of the separate sciences at Advanced Level. Secondly, the study sought to identify ways in which teachers were taking account of pupils’ different Science backgrounds in their teaching of A Level Science subjects.
