L2BIO
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms Eason

The course builds on the Biology topics studied in L1SCD and L1SCS. Aimed at those students who require specialist knowledge and understanding of Biology, this course covers the essentials of genetics, processes at the cellular level, a research project linking adaptations to an animal's way of life and a practical investigation to develop higher level Biological investigative skills. This course is not suitable for students who are taking Gateway.
