Biology is the study of life: its cells, molecular basis, history and ecosystems it inhabits. It examines animals, plants, bacteria and viruses, genetics and the application of this knowledge to medicine, agriculture and industry. It can prepare you for further study in nursing, sport and forensic sciences, for example. The AS level is identical to the first half of the A Level course, but you can no longer carry marks over from AS to A Level.
This course assumes that you have obtained at least a grade C in Biology so you may wish to check your prior knowledge before undertaking this course. It also includes some mathematics in a biological context, which are covered in the accompanying text book.
Molecules, cells and reproduction
Exchange, transport and diversity
