Biology & Human Biology

Biology is the study of living organisms and it is a crucial science in our everyday life.  Understanding how living things behave, develop and interact is increasingly important in our modern world.  Biology affects and involves all of us, and biologists have led many of the important scientific discoveries form which we all benefit from today.

The National 5, Higher Biology and Higher Human Biology courses follow areas such as genetics, cells, organisms, survival, physiology, immunology and neurobiology.

Both levels are assessed similarly.  For N5 there is one exam paper and the externally assessed assignment.  For Higher there are two separate exam papers and the externally assessed assignment.
