iGCSE Human Biology – Including Exams

Human Biology is the study of the structure and function of the human body, looking at how the human species evolved, how we change over our lifespan, how we adapt to life stressors, and how our how our bodies are influenced by food, nutrition, disease, and environmental factors.

But for everything we know, there’s so much more to discover, such as immunology and evolution.

This course will develop your knowledge of human biology, with a focus on the medical aspects of human processes, examining how the human species evolved, how we change over our lifespan, and how external factors affect us. You learn about the physiology of the major systems of the body, the impact of nutrition and environment on health, and human development and evolution.

There are no entry requirements! All you need is a computer or laptop, an internet connection, and you can study at your own pace wherever it suits you.

Your course starts with two short units that cover everything you need to know about iGCSE Human Biology, all about the exams, and includes some great advice on how to successfully study online.

Units 3 to 14 cover the Human Biology part of the course, and include:

  • Cells and tissues
  • Biological molecules
  • Bones, muscles and joints
  • Coordination
  • Nutrition and energy
  • Respiration
  • Gas exchange
  • Internal transport
  • Homeostatic mechanisms
  • Reproduction and heredity
  • Disease

At the end of your course are a set of mock exams.

You will be assessed regularly through assignments marked by your tutor and at the end with the mock exams.

Finally, you will take the written exams and you will achieve the Pearson iGCSE in Human Biology.
