Human Biology

Iframe Content


Human Biology allows students with a keen interest in the Biological Sciences to explore the concepts related to human physiology and anatomy more deeply than the general Biology curriculum. The speciation covers the same basics of the biology speciation eliminating the topics concerned with taxonomy and ecology, however.  It involves a deeper understanding of the process of homeostasis and the role of the skeletal system. Additionally, pathology is studied in more detail. Taking human biology can give an edge to those looking to carry on studying Biology in their A Levels.


The recommended method of preparation for human biology would be to initially finish studying the general biology speciation and then spend a further month or two studying the additional topics and going over the past papers. Like the other sciences, the exam is divided into two papers – paper one and paper two. Paper one is of 120 marks and consists of questions covering all the topics studied whereas, paper two consists of 60 marks and is concerned mainly with the experiments and their methods.
