Funding Support for Students
Biology is the study of living organisms. It is concerned with studying microbes, classifying organisms and investigating different species and their interactions with each other and the natural environment.
Unit 1: Cells, Living Processes and Biodiversity
Students can progress to study biology and related subjects at a more advanced level, for example Advanced Subsidiary Biology and Advanced Biology. For those progressing directly into employment, a GCSE in biology is relevant not only to the fields of science and medicine, but also to areas of commerce and public service that value problem-solving and practical skills.
Units 1 and 2 are each assessed by a written examination either at Foundation Tier (grades C–G) or Higher Tier (grades A*–D/E).
