AS/A2 Biology at Queen Elizabeth School

Course description

Some aspects of Biology have usually found a place of interest for most people and this is reinforced in numerous ways.  Have you noticed how many wildlife programmes there are on TV for example, and how recent discoveries in genetics are opening up surprising possibilities that a decade ago would have been considered almost a fantasy?  Our advancing understanding of medicine, health and disease, genetic engineering and conservation to name but a few mean that it is an exciting time to study biology.

Images of polar bears drowning in the expanse of the arctic ocean, outbreaks of foot and mouth disease, the struggle against HIV and malaria, the real implications of rainforest deforestation and conflicting reports of whether or not wine actually is good for us; these are just some of the issues that face us as individuals and as members of society.

Our Biology course touches on these areas, expands some of them, introduces you to many more and is the real “life” skill that has the ability to lead you into a wide range of exciting possibilities.  Do you care about these issues?  Would you like to expand your knowledge and application of biology and become involved first hand with tackling issues that ultimately affect us all?  Well read on...
