BIOLOGY AT KING GEORGE V COLLEGE
A level Biology is an interesting investigation of the real world. We cover topics such as cells and membranes, transport systems, disease and biodiversity, regulation, genetics and ecosystems. Students will also develop and perfect their practical skills throughout the two years of study, to achieve a practical endorsement alongside the Biology A level and this means that.
Students from Biology have gone on to study a range of courses from Medicine at The University of Oxford to Geology at The University of Liverpool. The breadth of skills developed throughout the course make it an excellent accompanying A Level to not just other sciences but also English and arts based courses.
5 GCSEs at grades 9-5 (A*-B) including English Language and a 4 or above (Grade C) in GCSE Maths. For Biology you will need a Grade 6,6 in Combined Science or Grade 6 Biology and a Grade 6 in Maths.
MedSoc is offered to all students but is especially encouraged for Biology students who wish to further their education within a medical field.
We take part in the annual Biology Olympiad, a university led competition where A Level Biology students from across the country compete in practical and knowledge based tasks.
Our students learn and practice scientific investigations in newly refurbished spacious Biology laboratories using new technology and equipment.
