Level 3 Biology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Parker

Recommended Prior Learning

Ideally 11 credits from Level 2 Biology including one external. Students must be fluent in English to be successful due to the technical vocabulary used.  Chemistry is a useful supporting course, particularly if student intends tertiary level Biological/Medical Sciences. 

Otherwise, with HoDs approval.

If you are planning to sit scholarship Biology you should select the 13BIA course. This course does not fully complement scholarship Biology.

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Devices will be essential for every lesson. Use of text books and course workbooks; videos; presentations and class discussions. Trip to Auckland Zoo. Homework is a vital part of the course and students can expect to have regular homework set.
