GCSE Biology

Main page content (1 column)

Biology is the study of living organisms, their workings and the interplay between them. The IGCSE Biology course is ideally suited to those wishing to pursue the subject to A Level, or those simply wishing to gain an understanding of the workings of life around them. Biology is a practical subject and students are encouraged to carry out a number of experiments in the college’s laboratory.

Topics include Homeostasis, Respiration, Variety of life through to biofuels and genetic engineering.

Biology Students go onto to a varied array of further studies from Medicine and Dentistry to Zoology, conservation projects and journalism.  

The course is examined through two written papers that can cover material from anywhere in the syllabus. Included in the exam are questions on carrying out experimental, theory and data manipulation.
