A Level Biology

Summary

You will be excited about the developments being made in our understanding of living organisms, the way they have evolved, how they function and play a part in their environment. You should have a commitment to apply yourself fully to what is a challenging subject.
Biology students go on to study a variety of life science related degrees and career aspirations often including health and clinical professions such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physiotherapy, pharmacy, optometry, or nursing.
A level biology emphasises the way in which biologists work and the contributions of biology to society. It involves a wide range of topics including molecular biology, ecosystems, micro-organisms, disease, inheritance, energy transfer and control in cells and organisms. The course encourages an enthusiasm for biology and develops practical skills, experimental techniques and data analysis.
You will be taught through a mixture of theory and experimental work, supported by independent study using on-line resources. You will be prepared well both for written papers and practical assessment.
