Biology AS/A Level at Djanogly City Academy

Course description

Biology A Level will give you the skills to make connections and associations with all living things around you.

Biology literally means the study of life and if that’s not important, what is? Being such a broad topic, you’re bound to find a specific area of interest, plus it opens the door to a fantastic range of interesting careers.

Entry requirements

A Level Biology builds on the work done in GCSE Science and GCSE Maths, so you’ll need a grade B from both. Written communication is also important and you’ll need to be a strong writer. 


There is no coursework on this course. However, your performance during practicals will be assessed. There are three exams at the end of the two years for A Level, all of which are two hours long.

At least 15% of the marks for A Level Biology are based on what you learn in your practicals. The AS Level has two exams at the end of the year, both are 90 minutes long

Future opportunities

Possible degree options are Biology, Psychology, Sport and Exercise Science, Medicine, Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, Pharmacology and Pharmacy. Possible career options include a doctor, a clinical molecular geneticist, a nature conservation officer, pharmacologist, research scientist, a vet, secondary school teacher, a marine biologist and a dentist
