Forensic Science is simply the application of science to the law. In criminal cases, forensic scientists are often involved in the search for and examination of physical traces, which might be useful in establishing or excluding an association between someone suspected of committing a crime, and the scene of a crime or victim. Such traces commonly include blood and other body fluids, hairs, textile fibres from clothing, paint or glass from road traffic accidents, or flammable substances which may have been used to start fires.The Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A levels.
