Biology A Level at Handsworth Wood Girls' Academy
You will learn about a range of topics concerned with Populations and Environment and Control in cells and in organisms. You will continue to develop your practical skills and personal, learning and thinking skills. You will be expected to develop your communication skills through presenting some of your work to the rest of the class
A2 Unit 4: The Natural Environment and Species Survival
A2 Unit 5: Energy, Exercise and Co-ordination
A2 Unit 6: Practical Biology and Experimental Investigation
A grade ‘D’ at AS-level in this subject is required to progress from the AS-level to the A-level
Students will continue to learn through similar methodologies to the AS-level course. However problem solving tasks and exam questions will be more challenging to allow access to the new A* grade and students will be expected to engage in more independent learning to prepare them for University education.
As a consequence of its direct and indirect relevance to so many areas, a study of A2 Biology will assist access to a range of degree courses and careers including Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Biomedics, Biology, Environmental Work, Nursing and Pharmaceuticals.
