About the course
GCSE Biology provides the basis for studying A-level Biology, or a general background for those wanting to specialise in one or more separate sciences. It is a modern course that will stimulate your interest in how science works. You will study the structure, functions, diversity and interactions of living organisms, and the impact of humans on the environment, also some aspects of genetics and biotechnology. You will also investigate how science works, and be able to apply your knowledge.
