Biology at Brixham College

Course description

Biology is one of the most popular A Level subjects in the country, attracting students studying a wide range of other subjects. Biology involves the study of a wide range of exciting topics, ranging from molecular biology to the study of ecosystems and from microorganisms to mammoths.

In the first year you’ll study three main topics: ‘Biology and disease’, ‘The variety of living organisms’, plus a practical assignment which is designed to sharpen your investigative skills. Amongst them, these three topics give a solid grounding in Biology.

Year two helps you build on that firm foundation and, like year one, has two academic topics plus a practical assignment. The academic topics are ‘Populations and environment’, and ‘Control in cells and organisms’. The practical assignment is where you investigate a different area of Biology.
