A Level Biology 7402

About A Level Biology 7402 Syllabus

Relevant in the classroom and the real world

We involved over a thousand teachers in developing these specifications, to ensure that the subject content is relevant to real world experiences and is interesting to teach and learn. We’ve also presented it in a straightforward way, giving you the freedom to teach in the way that works for your students.

A-level Biology is a stepping stone to future study, which is why we also consulted universities to ensure these specifications allow students to develop the skills that they want to see.

This approach has led to specifications that will support you to inspire students, nurture a passion for Biology and lay the groundwork for further study in courses like biological sciences and medicine.

The way you teach – your choice

These specifications have been written in a context-free style. This means that you can select the context and applications that you feel bring the subject alive. You can also teach to your strengths and to your students’ needs. To support you, we have produced a range of excellent teaching resources that you can use alongside your own.

Practicals at the heart of science

Like you, we believe that Biology is fundamentally an experimental subject. These specifications provide numerous opportunities to use practical experiences to link theory to reality, and equip students with the essential practical skills they need.

Teach AS and A-level together

We’ve ensured that the AS and A-level are fully co-teachable. The AS exams include similar questions to those in the A-level, with less difficulty, allowing for future growth. We’ve created our A-level content with our GCSE in mind to make sure that there is a seamless progression between qualifications. We’ve also followed ASE guidance on use of scientific terminology across our science subjects.

Assessment success

We’ve tested our specimen question papers with students, making sure they’re interesting, straightforward and clear and hold no hidden surprises. To ensure that your students are rewarded for the biology skills and knowledge they’ve developed, our exams include:

  • accessible assessments allowing students of various abilities to shine
  • a choice of two essay questions giving students more opportunities to bring together knowledge of the whole specification (A-level only).

With us, your students will get the results they deserve, from the exam board you trust.

Support and resources to help you teach

We know that support and resources are vital for your teaching and that you have limited time to find or develop good quality materials. So we’ve worked with experienced teachers to provide you with a range of resources that will help you confidently plan, teach and prepare for exams.
