Biology A Level at Sponne School

Course description

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

There are a total of eight units in the specification –four at AS and four at A Level. The topics are assessed by written exam. 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 at GCSE and it is particularly suitable for students who have the skills and knowledge associated with triple Biology or the GCSE Additional Science course. Students who study A-level Biology may go on to a Biology-related degree course.
