Biology is a fascinating subject for many students and is at the forefront of many recent technological advances, from vaccines to genetics.

Generally, it helps us understand the living world and the ways its many species, including humans, function, evolve and interact. During their studies, students will develop their knowledge and understanding of biological concepts by applying them to a range of different practical and theoretical situations.

Examination based. Assessment will take place either at a British Council office or an approved Edexcel Centre in your home country.
