Biology AS/A Level at Rastrick High School & Sixth Form College, A Specialist Technology College

Course description

A-level Biology is a challenging, rewarding course that helps students develop skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career. It offers teachers and students freedom, creativity and opportunity for independent progression from GCSE Science or Biology.

There are a total of six units in the specification – three at AS and three at A2. Four of the units are assessed by written exam. Two units assess investigative and practical skills which can be marked by schools, colleges or by AQA.

This specification allows all students to show what they can do, as well as being suitable for those looking for a challenge.

A-level Biology builds on the concepts and skills developed in the GCSE and it is particularly suitable for students who have the skills and knowledge associated with a GCSE Additional Science course or equivalent. Students who study A-level Biology may go on to a Biology-related degree course.
