a level biology


“Biology is likely to remain the biggest part of science through the twenty-first century. – Freeman Dyson, professor emeritus at the institute for Advanced Study

As Freeman Dyson notes, the 21st century will undoubtedly be known as the century of biology. We constantly hear of reports of new discoveries in biology, but more exciting advances are still to come.  The study of biological ageing promises to extend the human lifespan well beyond its previous limits, while the innovations currently taking place in genetics renew our understanding of what it means to be human in a manner unparalleled since Darwin first published his theory of evolution by natural selection. Students who can comprehend and contribute to the extraordinary discoveries that are now being made within biology are well placed to forge a successful career in the innovation economy. A Level Biology is a particularly challenging subject, and is accordingly held in great esteem both by elite universities and by employers.

Private tuition in A Level Biology at LCC Learning is carefully calibrated to the needs of individual students. Our private tuition is provided by teachers dedicated to making the complexities of Biology accessible and fun for all their students. They keep up to date both with the A Level Biology curriculum and the most exciting advances in biological sciences in order to ensure that students are constantly stimulated by their studies and fully prepared to face the challenges of their examinations. Our private tuition sessions aim to instil into our students habits of scientific thinking that will prove important to students in their university careers and beyond. Through private tuition, we also hone students’ examination technique. We regularly stage mock examinations with a view to ensuring that students realise their full potential in A Level Biology.

Topics included in the A Level Biology course at LCC Learning

  • Biological molecules
  • Cells
  • Communication and homeostasis
  • Exchange and transport in both plants and animals
  • Pathogens and the immune response
