Biology Level 3 AS and A2 Duration 1-2
years What will I study You will study 2 units at AS and
AS - Unit 1 is Cells, Exchange and Transport which covers cell
structure, diversity and cell division, followed by movement across
membranes. Transport covers both animal and plants so you will investigate
heart and blood vessels alongside xylem and phloem.
Unit 2 is
Molecules, Biodiversity and Human Interactions; this includes biochemistry
and enzymes, followed by the study of living organisms and the differences
between them including Natural Selection. Finally, Human Interactions
covers food production, disease and defence against disease, concluding
A2 - Unit 1 is Communication, Homeostasis and
Energy, covering the nervous and endocrine systems, the kidney and liver.
Photosynthesis and Respiration are then compared, including exercise.
2 is Control, Genomes and Environment where you will study the role of DNA
variation and gene technology. This is followed by ecosystems and
sustainability. This module concludes with coordination and the role of
the brain in behaviour.
Study Visits Field work and
conservation topics will include compulsory day trips.
more than £15 per day trip.
