A-level Biology encourages students to dig deeper into the subject, pursue their interests and develop independent learning. We believe that when a student takes ownership of his/her learning and develops a real interest in the subject, he/she will achieve better results and more thoroughly enjoy his/her A-level course.

A-level Biology schemes of work are developed around strict specifications to ensure students are fully prepared for A-level exams.

The A-level Biology specification follows a linear format, where the lessons are grouped in a total of eight core topics are taught across two years, all of which will be examined at the end of the second year.

The topics will also involve a number of practical skills, which are assessed throughout the course during lessons and on a three-day residential course at the end of the first year.

  • Biological molecules
  • Cells
  • Organisms exchange substances with their environment
  • Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms
  • Energy transfers in and between organisms
  • Organisms respond to changes in their internal and external environments
  • Genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems
  • The control of gene expression

Practical work is an integral part of the course.

At higher level, many students studying A-level Biology take up places in Higher Education to study medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, physiotherapy, biomedical science and other science-related courses. Many students who wish to pursue one of these courses choose Biology alongside another or multiple sciences – although a few will have studied Biology as their only A-level science.
