About this course

This course is designed to follow on from the popular AQA GCSE Science courses. Your studies will be well supported by a wide variety of teaching and learning materials, including numerous online resources. The first year of the course focuses on the core biological principles of cells, biological molecules and genetics. The second year addresses ecology, evolution and the various ways that organisms sense and interact with their environment. Practical work is assessed throughout the course and will help you develop valuable skills in laboratory techniques and data analysis. Biology requires strong analysis and communication skills.
