+ Aim

The aim of this course is to review the major topics of the IGCSE Biology syllabus. Topics will be studied with an emphasis on the use of past paper questions and model answers to improve exam technique. Clear focus will be made on clarity and detail in answers so that students are well equipped to answer the rigorous and precise style of the questions that will be asked in the exam. Time will also be set aside to cover the key experimental skills that will be examined.

+ Course Materials

Students should bring copies of their own specifications and their main textbooks. All other materials will be provided. A scientific calculator will also be required.

+ Other Information

This course is primarily designed for students taking IGCSE Biology as a separate science qualification offered by the Edexcel exam board. The content is similar to that of the CIE Biology IGCSE syllabus and we welcome bookings from students taking exams with CIE. Students taking IGCSE Double Award Science are also welcome to attend the courses, as around 70 to 80 % of the Biology material is common to both exams and it will be made clear when topics are only for separate science candidates.

Please note this course is not suitable for students following Biology or Double Award Science specifications other than Edexcel or CIE IGCSE.

Please note that the emphasis given to particular topics will be weighted to the needs and requirements of the candidates in the group.
