You will enjoy a wide range of learning experiences, including practical work and dissections, practice exam questions, and lots of interactive activities, designed to support your understanding of the theoretical concepts. The course covers a wide variety of fundamental biological principles, and also covers how this knowledge is used in the 21st century, for example in stem cell research. As well as leading onto a range of purely biological sciences at university, it is essential for a career in clinical professions such as medicine and veterinary science, and a big advantage for other areas of study such as forensics.
