Course overview

A-Level Biology is an ideal subject choice if you plan to study other science-based subjects or progress on to higher level science courses at university.

You will learn about a wide range of biological concepts and techniques, including health and diseases, theory of DNA replication, biochemistry of photosynthesis and respiration.

You will also discover how you have developed from a simple single cell into a complex, multi-cellular, organism and how the genetic code has allowed such complexity to thrive on Earth. You will also explore how society makes decisions about biology-related issues and how biology contributes to the success of the economy and society. Topics covered alongside the core subject criteria include developmental biology, the musculoskeletal system, and learning and habituation.

Entry requirements
