Course information

Covering a broad range of topics, from cell and plant life to ecology and food production, the Biology IGCSE course is a popular choice for students that require a basic level of biological understanding before studying the topic at A level.

The course itself is made up of five modules.

  • Module 1: Cells and Organisms
  • Module 2: Plant and Animal Physiology A
  • Module 3: Plant and Animal Physiology B
  • Module 4: Inheritance
  • Module 5: Ecology and Food Production

There are 23 lessons and 13 tutor-marked assessments, two of which are mock examinations. Each lesson will challenge the student, helping them to achieve the targets set throughout each module. This, in turn, will prepare them for future examinations. A more comprehensive summary can be found in the course introduction.

Practical Work

The practical work described at various places in this course is to help to develop your skills for the practical-based components of the theory exams. You should try to carry out this work yourself; if you can undertake some of it at home, this will be a great help.

Three of the lessons are devoted to the development of practical skills

The exam will include written questions on practical based study. There is no practical examination.
