A Level, Level 3

Biology

Biology is central to many contemporary scientific issues including the environment, genetic engineering, stem cell research, bio-fuels and sustainability of the human food chain. During the course you will study all aspects of the science of life and living things.

You will study a range of areas, including:

• Biological Molecules

• Cells

• Cell Division

• DNA

• The Environment

The work involves a mixture of class teaching, research, group work and practical lab work which may be assessed as part of your external exams.

The majority of our students progress onto a relevant university degree.

Note that in order to be able to study Biology at university, you will need to have studied Chemistry at A Level as well.


If you have a keen interest in science, are prepared to work hard and would like to find out more about Biology then this is the course for you.

In addition to the minimum A Level requirements - 4 GCSEs at Grade 5, plus English Language at Grade 4 - you will need a Grade 6 or above in GCSE Mathematics and a Grade 6 or above in Biology or Combined Science.
