Overview

Our Online GCSE Biology Course is the international version or IGCSE. The IGCSE course aims to give students a knowledge and understanding of biological facts, concepts and principles, while developing experimental skills.

Students will also learn to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them. Biology is an essential course of study should you wish to pursue a career in science or medicine or if you are considering higher level study in any of the natural sciences.

Our Online GCSE Biology Course enables students to:

  • Acquire knowledge and understanding of biological facts, concepts and principles
  • Develop an appreciation of the significance of biological facts, concepts and principles and the skills needed for their use in new and changing situations
  • Appreciate the importance of accurate experimental work to scientific method and reporting
  • Form hypotheses and design experiments to test them
  • Sustain and develop an enjoyment of, and interest in, the study of living organisms
  • Evaluate, in terms of their biological knowledge and understanding, the benefits and drawbacks of scientific and technological developments, including those related to social, environmental and economic issues.

Hi which exam centre or exams board can be used to sit the exam and dates for 2020?

Hi Kaz, The awarding body for this course is Edexcel, we have an exam centre finder on our website which will allow you to find a local centre to take your exam and we also have centres in London, Bolton and Coventry that we could book you in. Examination dates are as follows Paper 1- 5/12/2020 Paper 2- 6/1/2020 The deadline for booking was the beginning of Feb so late fees may be put in place at centres and you may struggle to find centres that are still accepting private candidates

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
