In GCSE Biology you will be studying the structure, nature and diversity of living organisms and how they react with their environment. You'll look at howhumans have an impact on the environment and investigate some of the ways in which biological developments are taking place, such as stem cell research and genetically modified plants and animals. Over the duration of the course you'll learn skills of analysis, evaluation and experimentation and take part in practical laboratory work.

GCSE Biology is a basic and necessary grounding required to study the subject at Advanced level and if you have any aspiration to study Life Sciences at university level you'll be expected to obtain a good pass.

Assessment is by a mixture of written examination and laboratory practical work and to ensure you have the necessary written skills it's very much worth using Marked by Teachers. They have a massive range of GCSE Biology essay questions and assignments, study of which will really help you gain the skills you need to pass.
