Biology ALevel at Torpoint Community College

Course description

The aim is to develop your interest and enthusiasm for Biology. It will encourage you to appreciate how society makes decisions about scientific issues and how the sciences contribute to the success of the economy and society. It will utilize a deeper appreciation of the skills, knowledge and understanding of How Science Works.

A level Biology will help to build your knowledge and understanding of different areas of Biology and how they relate to each other. Biology’s primary goal is to study life and living organisms.

Whatever career you enter, wherever you go, whatever you do, your number one priorities will all be with living things. The course will be lively, including practical classes. We will work hard but hopefully have some fun along the way!

Biology goes particularly well with the other Sciences... Psychology, Physics and especially Chemistry but for many students Biology will be their only Science subject. At this stage students are often looking for a combination of A levels which keeps their options open and including Biology will help to do that.
