Biology is current news; why else is it featured so frequently by the media? The technology for cloning genes and transferring genes between organisms, and even species, has undergone an explosive development in the last two decades. DNA technology is used as evidence in criminal prosecutions and to study extinct animals. Threats to conservation and the degradation of our landscape and habitats have been matched by a greater understanding of the dependence of organisms on each other and the environment.
Students wishing to study Biology will normally have achieved a good pass grade at Biology GCSE and will be expected to have a sound understanding of the subject as well as an interest in furthering their skills.
The A-level in Biology aims to engage and inspire students by showing how an understanding of many contemporary issues requires a grasp of fundamental biological ideas.
Biology is an extremely important subject for providing a necessary grounding ready for many higher education courses. It is essential for all biology and life science courses as well as related subjects including psychology, medicine and veterinary courses.
