A Level Biology
If you're looking to break into the world of science, an 'A' Level in Biology will give you the perfect head start. Biology is the fastest developing science today, and by studying it with ICS you'll gain a great understanding of the following topics: Core Principles, Genes and Generic Engineering, Physiology and Transport, Energy, Control and Continuity, Behaviour and Populations, and The Environment.
What's more, once you've gained your 'A' Level you can use it as an entry qualification to further education, or to help you gain employment in the field of science.
There is no deadline for enrolment so you can start your course at any time.
You do not need to have taken the GCSE Biology, though it would be helpful. Basic Maths skills are required.

What our students say
"I studied two A' levels with ICS to help me get to university - it was convenient for me because my school didn't offer courses I wanted to do and I'm not tied down to a rigid way of studying. The textbooks were easy to find, and the coursework is very self-explanatory." Leon Williams.
Whether your goal is to go on to Higher Education or you are keen to make a start in your chosen career, studying A Levels with ICS will help make these choices available to you in the future.
