Sixth Form


The aims of the A Level in Biology are to enable students to:
• Develop their interest in, and enthusiasm for, Biology including developing an interest in further study and careers in the subject
• Appreciate how society makes decisions about Biology-related issues and how Biology contributes to the success of the economy and society
• Develop and demonstrate a deeper appreciation of the skills, knowledge and understanding of How Science Works
• Develop essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of Biology and how they relate to each other


Why is it a useful qualification?

An A level qualification in Biology could prepare you to study Biology or Biological Sciences in further or higher education. You may wish to take a more vocational course leading to a career in medicine or physiotherapy, veterinary medicine, animal health, conservation, horticulture or agriculture; or it can be used as a qualification for non-science related careers such as banking and insurance.
