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.
