4. Stimulate interest in and care for the environment
5. Promote an awareness that :
5.1 Scientific theories and methods have developed and continue to do so as a result of cooperative activities of groups and individuals.
5.2 The study and practice of science are subject to social, economic, technological ethical and
cultural influences and limitations.
5.3 The application of science may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the
community and the environment.
5.4 Science transcends national boundaries and that the language of science, correctly and rigorously
applied is universal

The three domains in Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) are :

(a) Knowledge with understanding.22
(b) Handling information and solving problems.
(c) Experimental skills and investigations.
Description of each domain is given below.

2. Scientific vocabulary, terminology, conventions (including symbols, quantities and units)
3. Scientific instruments and apparatus including techniques of operation and aspects of safety.
4. Scientific quantities and their determination.
5. Scientific and technological applications with their social, economic and environmental
The curriculum objectives define the factual material that candidates may be required to recall and
explain. Questions testing these objectives will often begin with one of the following words : define,
state, describe, explain or outline etc.
(b) Handling Information and Solving Problems
Students should be able, in words or using other written forms of presentation (i.e. symbolic,
graphical and numerical)
1. locate, select, organise and present information from a variety of sources;
2. translate information from one to another;
3. manipulate numerical and other data;
4. use information to identify patterns, report trends and draw inferences;
5. present reasoned explanations for phenomena, patterns and relationships;
6. make predictions and hypotheses;
7. solve problems;
These skills cannot be precisely specified in the curriculum objectives because question
testing such skills are often based on information which is unfamiliar to the candidate. In answering
such question, candidates are required to use principles and concepts that are within the syllabus and
apply them in a logical, deductive manner to a novel situation.
Question testing these skills will often being with one of the following words: Discuss,
predict, suggest, calculate or determine etc.
(c) Experimental Skills and Investigations
Students should be able to
1. use techniques, apparatus and materials
2. make and record observations, measurements and estimates;
3. interpret and evaluate experimental observations and date;
4. plan, investigate and/or evaluate methods and suggest possible improvements (including
the selection of techniques, apparatus and materials).23
