IGCSE Biology

At GCSE we follow Cambridge IGCSE course. The course is designed to expand upon the topics studied in Years 7 - 9, and to allow students to develop their skills of knowledge and learning. Cambridge programmes and qualifications help Cambridge learners to become:


 confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others


 responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others


 innovative and equipped for new and future challenges

 engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference

 As Biology is compulsory at GCSE, we are able to encourage, extend and nurture those who enjoy the subject, whilst also helping ‘non scientists' to develop self-confidence.


The Biology curriculum at Key stage 4 is broadly divided into sections:

Candidates expected to achieve grades D, E, F or G, will be entered for the Core Curriculum and those candidates expected to achieve grade C or higher should study the Extended Curriculum.  There are three IGCSE papers; multiple choice, alternative to practical and an exam with more structured questions.  This variety of papers allows the students to use all of their skills learnt during the two years of the course.
