A Level in Biology at Great Marlow School

Course description

Biology allows you to ask questions about the world that we live in, and understand the living things that make it up in greater detail. The skills that you develop during this course provide an excellent grounding for a wide variety of future degree courses and employment. Biology is an A-Level that opens many different doors through the diversity of opportunity that it offers you, from further studies in Life Science, Medicine, Environmental Science or Forensic Science through biological based employment such as Biotechnology or the food industry. 

Entry requirements

The qualification builds on the knowledge and practical skills students have gained in GCSE Additional Science, or GCSE Biology. Minimum requirements are a Grade A in both GCSE Core Science and GCSE Additional Science, or Grade A in GCSE Biology.

10% of the marks available within written examinations will be for assessment of mathematics (in the context of biology) at a Level 2 standard, or higher. Therefore students with a B grade in GCSE Maths, as well as those studying A-Level Maths, would be at an advantage.
