Biology GCSE

Biology GCSE

This interesting course focuses on the many different aspects of biology – from the ways in which human bodies respond to changes inside them and their environment through to what animals and plants are built from.

You will learn about different scientific ideas, as well as the environmental, social and ethical issues associated with technological advances.

Specific areas you will study are: Cell Biology, Organisation, Infections, Bioenergetics, Homeostasis, Inheritance, variation and evolution and Ecology.

For general enquiries, please contact: admissions@newcollege.ac.uk.

Entry requirements

You will need a GCSE grade 4/C in core Science, or a grade 3/D in Additional Science/Biology, or a grade 3/D in Combined Science/Biology. If you don’t have these specific qualifications, you can undertake a diagnostic test to show that you have the necessary potential.

Future career and study opportunities

Achieving a grade 6/B will enable you to progress onto A Level Biology. With a grade 5/C, you could go on to study BTEC Applied Science, T-levels, A Level Environmental Studies or A Level Psychology. This qualification will also count as a Science GCSE if you need one for Higher Education (eg. for a teaching course).

Additional resources/costs

You will be expected to supply your own stationery and you may want to purchase a textbook. Contributions may also be required for extra activities and visits you wish to take part in.
