A distance learning course is the ideal way to gain an A Level Biology (A2). Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning A Level Biology is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for the A Level Biology exam through home study. What's more, because the distance learning A Level Biology course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required.
This course is based on two approaches:
1. The concept-led approach which includes study of the laws, theories and models of biology, exploring the practical application of these in both knowledge and with reference to everyday life.
2. The context-led approach considers applications of biological knowledge and looks at the underpinning concepts.
This particular course will offer both these approaches in combination, so students will benefit from a 'mixed' approach; this is more appropriate for distance learning students as there is a need for flexibility. The assessment criteria and structure is the same for both approaches. After each topic there will be a tutor marked assignment, this can be emailed to your tutor as an attachment in Word, Works or RTF format. You will be sent a welcome letter by your tutor, as soon as you make contact, which will outline assignment submission in more detail.
There is a project element to the A2 award which expects distance learning students to reflect on practical biological knowledge as well as theoretical. This project will be based upon a field visit but does not require students to have laboratory access.
Your project will be marked and moderated by an independent coursework marker at the centre where you sit your examinations. There may be a fee for the marking. All distance learning students should download the Private Candidates Handbook form Edexcel's website which gives you guidance on finding an examination centre and registering. Likewise, International students need to download the specific handbook for them, which will give alternative examination arrangements etc.
