A-Level / IA-Level Biology - exams not included

This course at a glance

  • Study the human body and the building blocks of life
  • Develop a deep understanding of biological principals
  • Learn about pioneering research
  • Complete this A-level in as little as 6 months
  • Allows you to progress to university level study
  • Study around your existing commitments

Studying your A-Level

Biology at A-Level is a chance to significantly extend your biological knowledge. You will take a deeper look at some of the core ideas covered at GCSE level while covering a range new material.

During your studies you will cover the basic components of living systems, biological molecules, biodiversity, homeostasis and much more.

You will study ecosystems and their inhabitants, the impact of human society and the changing world.

You will be encouraged to gain a superior understanding of biological principles, including genetics, patterns of inheritance, cloning and biological processes.

Upon completion of the course you will be a capable and competent biologist, with a developed understanding of core principals. All of which will give you the level of competence required to progress to study at degree level. 

Should you decide to take the exams, you can choose between A-Level and the International A-Level. 

Getting Started

learndirect is a leading UK distance learning institute, which means we take a person-centred approach to learning. We provide the tools to learn and you do the rest.

This means no physical classes or prohibitive timetables. You learn when you will be at your most effective, in an environment you will be most comfortable in.

You still get the academic support from your dedicated tutor. They will provide advice, guidance and feedback on your assignments. This allows you to progress in a structured, positive way.

Ultimately this allows you to study and complete your A-level in Biology in a manner that reflects your lifestyle, commitments and your approach to learning.

You can start learning from the moment you have enrolled with us. We don’t have term times, just an online portal with all your course material ready and waiting. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

That means you can get your A Level in Biology as quickly as you choose.

Modules

During your studies you will cover the following modules:

  • Introduction to Science
  • Biological Molecules
  • Cells
  • How organisms exchange substances with their environment
  • Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms
  • Energy transfers in and between organisms
  • How organisms respond to changes in their environments
  • Genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems
  • The control of gene expression

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements, but a GCSE or IGCSE in this subject would be beneficial.

Average completion timeframe

The average time it takes to complete the course is 2 years.

Exams required

Exams are not included.

Is Membership Required?

No membership is required to enrol on this course.

Extension Rules

£40 for six months, maximum of twice. If expired more than six months ago, or have already had two extensions, then they need to restart the course and pay again.

Course Fees

All course fees, inclusive of all payment plans including our Premium Credit Limited option, must be settled before certification can be ordered.

*You will have access to the course for 24 months.

At the end of each unit you will find a Tutor Marked Assignment (TMA). This is completed online and submitted to your tutor. Once assessed your tutor will return your work complete with its final grade and feedback. Once you’ve successfully passed each assignment you’ll be ready to take your exam!

If you decide to take the exams at the end of this course and pass, you will have gained either an A-Level or IA-Level in Biology. This will enable you to progress to further and higher education programmes.

Frequently Asked Questions

A-Level Biology covers a vast amount of information, from cell structure to ecosystems. This can be daunting, however, concepts in biology often build upon each other, making them easier to understand if you approach it systematically. Assessments for A-Level Biology also go beyond regurgitating facts and require applying your knowledge to solve problems, analyse data, and critically evaluate scientific explanations. This is something students can find challenging, though the diagrams, charts, and models used throughout are designed to aid in visualisation and enhance comprehension. If you're naturally curious and enjoy learning about life, you'll likely find it more manageable.
Conquering A-Level Biology revision requires a strategic approach. Some of our top tips to ace your assessments include summarising key points in your own words, creating mind maps, drawing diagrams, and answering practice questions. You could also use flashcards for definitions, equations, and complex processes. Watching educational videos, documentaries, and animations to visualise complex processes and bring concepts to life can also be extremely helpful.
A-Level Biology opens doors to a vast array of exciting degree options in the UK. The more direct options revolve around life sciences and include biology, biochemistry, medicine, veterinary science, dentistry, and pharmacy. Other related degrees you could use your A-Level in Biology for include agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, psychology, and sports science.
An A-Level in Biology opens doors to a surprising variety of jobs in the UK. In healthcare and medicine, you could go on to become a doctor, nurse, paramedic, midwife, physiotherapist, biomedical scientist, and more. In research and academia, your A-Level in Biology could help you become a biology researcher, environmental scientist, marine biologist, zoologist, botanist, microbiologist, science teacher, or university lecturer. In industry and technology, you could eventually become a food scientist, agricultural scientist, biotechnologist, forensic scientist, veterinarian, environmental consultant, data scientist, or product development scientist. Outside of this, your Biology A-Level could help you become a science writer, science policy advisor, conservation officer, or lab technician. The possibilities are endless!
No, the A-Level Biology exam is not included in this course package but the course material prepares you to complete it. Should you decide to take the exams, you can choose between A-Level and the International A-Level.
