A Level Biology (including exam & practical)

Key Points

  • Explore the fundamentals of life.

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of micro and macro biology.

 

  • AQA exam included (AQA Specification: 7402).
  • Practical elements included.
  • Study around existing commitments.

Studying your A Level

A Biology at A Level is the opportunity to build on existing knowledge of the subject. Taking the core theories and principles and drilling down deeper, helping you to understand human biology and the world we inhabit.

During your studies you will cover the basic components of living organisms, biological molecules and genetics.

You will also explore ecosystems and the environment. You will be encouraged to draw links between the various elements such as the natural world and communicable diseases.

Throughout the course, you’ll develop a greater understanding of key biological principles.

The course is designed in line with AQA specifications to prepare you for your exam. You’ll also be able to apply your knowledge within the practical elements of the course.

Practical elements allow you to test your understanding of biological theory. The practical elements include:

  • Appropriate apparatus to record quantitative data
  • Ethical use of organisms to measure plant or animal responds
  • Identify biological molecules
  • Use microbiological aseptic techniques, including the use of agar plates and broth
  • Use sampling techniques in fieldwork

You will have 3 exams to complete to receive your qualification.

Exams will be a mixture of:

  • Short and long answer questions
  • Comprehension and extended response questions
  • Critical analysis of given experimental data
  • One essay from a choice of two titles

Your exams will be at an exam centre near to you. We will aim to find you a place within 50 miles of your postcode, subject to centre capacity and exam availability. 

Throughout your exam, you’ll be expected to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of biological concepts, theories and research methods.

Upon completion of the course and your exams, you will have a wide-ranging understanding of the subject area which will support progression to degree-level study or career advancement.

Getting Started

Stonebridge Associated Colleges is a leading provider of distance learning courses in the UK. That means we put you at the centre of the learning. This allows you the flexibility to study when it suits you, not us.

There are no classrooms, timetables or evenings spent in draughty old learning annexes. You have the power to complete your studies when you will be at your most effective, in an environment you will be most comfortable in.

You still get the academic support from your tutor. They will provide advice, guidance and feedback on your assignments. This allows you to progress in a structured, positive way.

Ultimately this allows you to study and complete your A Level in Biology in a manner that reflects your lifestyle, commitments and your approach to learning.

You can start learning from the moment you have enrolled with us. We don’t have term times, just an online portal with all your course material ready and waiting.

That means you can complete your A Level in Biology as quickly as you choose. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

As you progress through your course, you will study the following modules:

  • Introduction to Science
  • Biological Molecules
  • Cells
  • How organisms exchange substances with their environment
  • Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms
  • Energy transfers in and between organisms
  • How organisms respond to changes in their environments
  • Genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems
  • The control of gene expression

At the end of each unit you will find an end of unit assignment. This is completed online and submitted to your tutor. Once assessed your tutor will return your work complete with its final grade and feedback. Once you’ve successfully passed each unit you’ll be ready to take your exam!
