Course introduction

This course allows students to complete the second year of the GCE Biology A level qualification. It has the convenience and flexibility of being delivered mostly by distance learning.

Teaching & learning

Learning will be mostly by student self-study using a dedicated textbook with online support and an extensive range of resources available through the College's virtual learning environment (eBrock).

It is therefore essential to have access to the internet.

Minimum entry requirements

Students will need good independent study skills and a minimum grade B in Mathematics and Science GCSE is preferred.

An E in AS Biology is required for progression to A2.

How will I be assessed?

The A level assessment is made up of three examinations containing multiple choice, short answers and questions requiring an extended response.

All students will be entered for these exams.
