This International A Level Biology Online Course CAIE builds on the skills acquired at IGCSE (or equivalent) level. The course includes the main theoretical concepts which are fundamental to the subject, a section on some current applications of biology, and a strong emphasis on advanced practical skills. Practical skills are assessed in a timetabled practical examination.

The emphasis throughout is on the understanding of concepts and the application of biology ideas in novel contexts as well as on the acquisition of knowledge. The course encourages creative thinking and problem-solving skills which are transferable to any future career path. Cambridge International AS and A Level Biology is ideal for students who want to study biology or a wide variety of related subjects at university or to follow a career in science.
