Engaging and inspiring, the Edexcel Biology A level has been developed from the best of the pre-2008 Edexcel and Salters Nuffield Advanced Biology (SNAB) specifications. It has been designed to engage and inspire students by showing how an understanding of many contemporary issues requires a grasp of fundamental biological ideas. With a realistic, manageable level of content and assessment, it provides an enjoyable teaching and learning experience.
There will be no January AS or A level examinations from January 2014 onwards.
Changes to A levels from September 2015.
For more information about the changes, see the FAQs document available for download under the 'Teacher Support Materials' category below.
This specification is only available to centres taking Unit 3 Practical Biology and Research Skills and Unit 6 Practical Biology and Investigative Skills.
International centres opting for the alternative written papers in these units must take the Edexcel International Advanced Level in Biology qualification.
