Biology is the science of life: the material you learn at A-level has practical applications and relevance to all our lives. You will study a wide range of exciting topics, ranging from Molecular Biology to the study of ecosystems and from microorganisms to mammoths. Biology is a challenging, rewarding course where pupils come away with a critical awareness of current social and environmental issues and an understanding and respect for living things and analytical, evaluative and synoptic skills, as well as practical skills, including the ability to plan and manipulate data.

Further Study: A Level Biology is a great choice for people who wish to pursue a career in health and clinical professions, including medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, physiotherapy, nursing and forensic science.
