Studying your GCSE

Biology is a diverse and ever evolving subject. Biology has helped us understand everything from the human body to the natural world and climate change.

But for everything we know, there’s so much more to discover, such as immunology and evolution.

Studying biology – either on its own or complementing the other core sciences – will help you build a strong foundational knowledge of the subject. And how it applies to so much of the world around us.

It will also give you the opportunity to study biology at A-level and beyond.

The course covers everything from genetics, cell biology and the immune system through to evolution, reproduction, health and the environment.

You will get the chance to learn about biodiversity, human migration, climate change and how they are all connected.

Upon completion of the course you will have developed a competent level of biological knowledge. Including a confident understanding of key theories and principals. This will allow you to build on your knowledge through A-level or Access to Higher Education courses.

Getting Started

learndirect is a leading UK distance learning institute. That means we specialise in supporting our students to learn in a way that suits them. So, no classes or restrictive timetables.

This allows you to complete your GCSE in Biology in a way that works best for you, at a time and place of your choosing.

We trust you to fit your studies around your commitments in order to complete the course.

You can start learning from the moment you have enrolled on the course. We don’t have term times, just an online portal with all your course material ready and waiting.

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

You will have a dedicated tutor to support you throughout so you can ask questions and get help as you go. They will also be the one who marks your assignments so they can provide you with personalised feedback. This will allow you to make steady and continual improvement throughout the course.

Pursuing your career

A GCSE in biology allows you to go on to study either at A-level or complete RQF or an Access to HE Diploma. All of which can allow you to go on to study biology at degree level.

Modules

During your studies you will cover the following modules:

  • Introduction to Science
  • Cell biology
  • Organisation
  • Infection and response
  • Bioenergetics
  • Homeostasis and response
  • Inheritance
  • Variation and Evolution
  • Ecology

Requirements

Great news! To start this course there are no pre-entry requirements. To start straightaway all you need is a computer, tablet or mobile device and an internet connection!

Assessment

At the end of each unit you will find an end of unit assignment. 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 unit you’ll be ready to take your exam!

Qualifications

At the end of this course, if you decide to take an exam, after passing you’ll have gained a GCSE in Biology, which can enable you to go on to further and higher education programmes and can also help give you access to some universities.
