Biology is the study of living organisms. It is concerned with studying microbes, classifying organisms and investigating different species and their interactions with each other and the natural environment.
Units 1 and 2 are each assessed by a written examination either at Foundation Tier (grades C–G) or Higher Tier (grades A*–D/E).
Unit 1: Cells, Living Processes and Biodiversity
Students can progress to study biology and related subjects at a more advanced level, for example Advanced Subsidiary Biology and Advanced Biology. For those progressing directly into employment, a GCSE in biology is relevant not only to the fields of science and medicine, but also to areas of commerce and public service that value problem-solving and practical skills.
