Course description

Biology is an A Level subject that will develop not only your understanding of the world around you but will also allow you to develop a range of skills that can then be applied to any situation. Throughout the course you will learn a range of study and note-taking skills, you will learn how to analyse data and you will develop your research skills. You will also develop your interest and enthusiasm for Biology and appreciate the impact of scientific
decisions on wider society.

Course content

Students study the OCR A specification. This includes topics such as cells, transport in animals and plants, gas exchange, cell division, disease control, energy, reproduction and populations, genetics, control and homeostasis. Throughout your lessons practical activities will be used to help support your understanding.

Entry requirements

Students should have a GCSE grade B or 6 in the subject they are looking to study at Sixth Form. The exceptions are A levels that have not been taken at GCSE level (e.g. Psychology; Media Studies; Sociology). For these courses we will use the most appropriate GCSE qualification to make a decision. For example, GCSE Maths grade 6 to study Psychology and English Language grade 6 to study Media Studies and Sociology.
