dna-152135_640Higher Biology is offered as either a one-year or two-year course in S4-6 at PL.

Our current Higher Biology course consists of three units:

  1. DNA & the Genome
  2. Metabolism & Survival
  3. Sustainability & Interdependence

Students must pass all three units to be entered for the course award. The course award for Higher Biology is achieved through completion of an externally assessed question paper and an assignment.

More details on the Higher Biology course can be found on the SQA website. Click here to access the BBC Bitesize resources for Higher Biology.
