Course description

Biology is arguably the most relatable of the three scientific disciplines. Many students need a good science qualification before they can be accepted onto their college course. We are offering students GCSE biology as a retake option.

The course covers many aspects of biology in depth such as evolution, genetics, neurology and genetic engineering.

Students will develop many skills:

  • Practical skills

Students will be expected to sit three 60 minute module exams in the summer term and a controlled assessment (coursework) worth 25% of the GCSE.
