Biology is related to many areas of our life including food safety, agriculture, medicine, sport and scientific research.


You will learn about the nature of life from the molecules and chemicals that life is built upon to the way populations of the world's living organisms develop and live together.  Biology is a very hands-on subject and there will be regular practical work in class.  Your study will involve some dissection of animal and plant material.  Data analysis also forms an integral part of the course so you need to be confident using Maths.  If you are not studying A Level Chemistry, you will need to work with your Biology teachers to cover the basic biochemistry needed for this course.

A number of specifications will be changing and prospectus entries are based on information we have to date. This means that course content may be subject to change.

How will it be delivered?

Examination and practical endorsement.

3 x 2 hour external examinations at the end of year 2.

A range of practical assessments accross your course of study.

What can I do next?

Biologists can be found in many places, including medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, veterinary medicine, laboratory work, forensics, pathology and nursing.  Biology is also a well respected A Level for a wide range of non-science related courses and careers because it helps you to develop analytical, practical and investigative skills.
