Biology is described as the ‘science of life’ and biologists work in many different and diverse fields including cell biology, medicine, food production and ecology.
The biology course is divided into 6 modules which cover a wide range of topics, including cell biology, biochemistry, DNA structure, function and cell division, gas exchange in animals and transport in plants and animals, disease and the immune response.
You will also study biodiversity and classification of plants and animals and look at the biochemistry of photosynthesis and respiration and research into genetic inheritance, control of gene expression, gene technology, cloning and biotechnology and ecology.
A level biology is a key component in higher education applications for medicine, veterinary science, healthcare science, dentistry, nursing, horticulture, teaching, fisheries and conservation work. Biology also develops key skills required for most other study or career options.
GCSE grades in 6-6 combined science or a grade 6 in biology (if studied as a separate science) and 6 in maths.
