AS/A level Biology
Access to our digital resources website which hosts a wealth of free material
Three themed components so students can focus their revision for each assessment.
A choice of three options in component 3 to appeal to the interests of different students: Immunology, Human musculoskeletal anatomy, Neuroscience and behaviour.
If you have not had your Cycle 2 monitoring visit yet (and it has not already been scheduled by one of the other three awarding organisations) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org urgently. One science subject is the focus every cycle, monitoring visits cycle in the subject alphabetically i.e. if Biology was the focus of the cycle 1 (2015-17) visit, chemistry will be the focus in cycle 2 (2017-19) and so on.
If you have switched to Eduqas for the subject of focus for cycle 2 it is particularly important that you get in touch with us. A subject can only be monitored by the AO making entries and as the deadline for A-level entries is only 21/2/19 we may not be aware of you having switched to us until then.
