A Level Biology
This course can be studied as part of the science A Level pathway at Reading College.
If you want to learn more about biology, this A Level, combining theoretical and practical work, can increase your understanding.
It covers a range of topics, including cells and molecules, and develops your practical and research skills. You will also learn theories on the contribution of science to economy and society.
This course can lead to future study in the areas of veterinary, medical studies, biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, general biological, plant animal and environmental sciences.
Vocational science route: If you wish to study more practical applied science, you can apply to study our BTEC Level 3 Applied Science Extended Diploma. Both of these courses incorporate units of study covering physics, biology and chemistry.
