International AS Biology builds on the skills acquired at International GCSE (or equivalent) level. The syllabus includes the main theoretical concepts which are fundamental to the subject, some current applications of biology, and a strong emphasis on advanced practical skills. Practical skills are assessed in a timetabled practical examination. 

The emphasis throughout is on the understanding of concepts and the application of biology ideas in novel contexts as well as on the acquisition of knowledge. The course encourages creative thinking and problem-solving skills which are transferable to any future career path. International AS and A Level Biology is ideal for learners who want to study biology or a wide variety of related subjects at university or to follow a career in science.

Why Choose AS Level Biology?

Biology is relevant to your own life and health, to global food supplies and disease. Biology is one of the most dynamic subjects, from stem cell research to the future of augmented memory. A qualification in biology equips you with skills:  literacy, numeracy, social awareness, and an ability to make connections between natural, social, economic, political and technological fields.  International AS and A Level Biology is accepted by universities and employers as proof of knowledge and understanding of Biology.
