The IGCSE Biology syllabus enables students to progress to A-Level Biology, significantly more rigorous. However, students have already built a secure foundation. This makes it easier for them to perform well in A Levels and prepare for further study at university.
Homework is given at the end of each week. Students get a chance to polish their skills and cover more ground. We plan homework around a range of topics and subtopics, taking special care to cover everything in the syllabus. Students are generally required to solve problems based on their understanding of critical topics and research key concepts.
We offer a range of assessments during our live lessons. These include summative tests, worksheets, pop quizzes, group activities, and more. Using these assignments, our teachers assess each student’s skills and knowledge.
Parents are given 24/7 access to their children’s coursework. We also maintain an open line of communication between parents and teachers to ensure complete transparency. Additionally, we hold three parent-teacher consultations each year, one in every term. Parents can also set up consultations with teachers at mutually convenient times.
It is the responsibility of the parents to arrange their child’s examinations. Most students sit their papers at a school or college that accepts private candidates.
Unlike Cambridge, the AQA examination board doesn’t have many examination centres outside the UK. This means that most students will most likely sit their science A-Level exams at a UK examination centre.
Separate Science Practical Endorsement (Optional)
A-Level Biology does not require a practical endorsement. However, if you are planning on studying at university, it is crucial that you check with your chosen institution to see if they require a practical endorsement.
If so, a separate practical examination can be taken after students have passed their A-Level course. You should check with your local examination centre to see if they offer this option. International students can still sit for both the practical endorsement and the examinations in the UK.
