Applied Biology A-Level at Prince Henry's High School
This is a traditional A level Biology course which is taught at a slower pace in a more applied and practical style. A variety of approaches are used in lessons and students will be involved in note-taking, discussions, presentations, practical activities and examination question practice. It will complement a range of other subjects including Health & Social Care, Food Technology, Psychology and PE.
Across the modules, students will discuss, learn, analyse and investigate:
- The Foundations of Biology
- Exchange and Transport
- Biodiversity, Evolution and Disease
- Communication, Homeostasis and Energy
- Genetics, Evolution and Ecosystems.
All are underpinned by the practical skills of planning, implementation, analysis and evaluation.
Entry Requirement: Students need a minimum of 2 C grades in both GCSE Science A and Additional Science before starting the course. If GCSE Biology has been studied then students must have achieved a C grade in this. This course is suitable for students who do not achieve the entry requirements for the Biology A level course. BTEC or OCR Nationals are not accepted.
