knowledge and understanding of how science works; and develop essential 
knowledge and understanding of different areas of Biology and how they relate to 
each other. Students will be expected to attend a field work course as part of their studies.The A Level offers the opportunity to gain a broad spectrum of factual 
knowledge and an understanding of practical applications. it is a subject which
