Biology - A Level at Bexleyheath Academy

Course description

What causes disease? What is a heart attack, or a genetic fingerprint? Is evolution scientific reality or just a theory? Could you breed a bean plant that tastes of roast beef, and if so, should you? Are all  organisms related to each other, even humans? 
Biology focuses on the study of living organisms, the way they relate to each other and to the environment. Students get to find out what Biologists like Physiologists or Neurologists do. Core modules address aspects of Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Ecology, the environment. Neurophysiology, Genetics and Physiology. This is done by a combination of both academic and practical work.
You will be required to carry out background reading, research and essay writing. You will be expected to go through the notes you have taken in lessons and complete coursework, field work and practical reports, including statistical analysis of data. It is expected that each week you would spend a minimum of five hours doing private study.
