biology home page

Pupils will progress with their study of Biology by looking studying three units of work.


Unit headings are the same for both National 4 – which is internally assessed, and National 5, which culminates in an external examination. Entry into either National 4 or National 5 will be determined by students’ previous experience and attainment.


The Units studied are;

  • Cell Biology
  • Multi-cellular Organisms
  • Life on Earth

The National 4 course also includes the completion of an assessed ‘Added Value’ assessment.
