Biology

Biology is the study of life. Through the study of biology students employ the processes of science in their investigations and explore the diversity of life and the inter-relationship between organisms and their environment. Students develop an understanding and knowledge of the unit of life – the cell – whose structures and processes are shared by all living organisms and, in so doing, gain an insight into the uniqueness, function and role of organisms, including themselves. In addition, they become aware of the use by humans of other living organisms and their products to enhance human health and the human environment and make informed evaluations about contemporary biological issues.

It is intended that this syllabus will prove relevant to the lives of students and inspire in them an interest in and excitement about biology. It should enable them as future citizens to discuss and make judgements on issues in biology and science that impact on their daily lives and on society. It should provide them with the knowledge, skills and understanding to pursue further education, training and employment in biology-related fields and thereby respond to the needs of the economy and contribute to sustained economic development......
