Biology is an introduction to the way life on our planet works. It’s an essential for those planning to pursue a career in medicine, work with animals or in the marine environment. This qualification opens doors to higher education, and is lasting proof on your CV of this level of intensive learning.

During this A Level Biology course you will explore biological molecules, genetic information and energy transfers you will go on to understand how this impacts how organisms respond to their environment, genetic populations and the control of gene expressions.

Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by CIE), you will have achieved an internationally recognised CIE A Level Biology.


  • Understanding of how biological molecules and cells are formed and interact
  • Understanding this demanding subject in context
  • Applying the scientific methodology in biology
  • Developing critical thinking skills

This course has the following main themes:

Cells as the units of life

A cell is the basic unit of life and all organisms are composed of one or more cells. There are two fundamental types of cell: prokaryotic and eukaryotic.

Biochemical processes

Cells are dynamic: biochemistry and molecular biology help to explain how and why cells function as they do.

DNA, the molecule of heredity

Cells contain the molecule of heredity, DNA. Heredity is based on the inheritance of genes.

Natural selection

Natural selection is the major mechanism to explain the theory of evolution.

Organisms in their environment

All organisms interact with their biotic and abiotic environment.

Observation and experiment

The different fields of biology are intertwined and cannot be studied in isolation: observation and enquiry, experimentation and fieldwork are fundamental to biology.
