IB Biology is a two year course. It is to prepare students for university education. Students may choose to study Biology at the standard level or higher level.
IB Biology is the study of the natural world and all its the living things. It helps us to understand the connections between the different lifeforms and how they evolved.
In order to fulfill the requirements of the IB diploma, students have to take one subject in each of the six areas. They also choose to replace a subject in Group 6: The Arts with any one of the five areas.
-Group 1: Studies in language and literature
-Group 2: Language acquisition
-Group 3: Individuals and societies
-Group 4: Sciences
-Group 5: Mathematics
-Group 6: The Arts
Biology is one of the subjects under Group 4: Sciences.
5.Evolution and biodiversity
8.Metabolism, cell respiration and photosynthesis
10.Genetics and evolution
SL and HL students will choose one of the following option topics.
A.Neurobiology and behaviour
B.Biotechnology and bioinformatics
C.Ecology and conservation
Students studying IB Biology will be assessed internally and externally. The external examination is a written examination students have to take at the end of their IB course. The internal assessment is a Biology investigation where students have the opportunity to research design, perform and write up their own exploration. The internal assessment takes up 20% of their IB Biology grade
IB Super’s Biology classes offer a structured approach to help students improve their understanding of Biology.
Tutors give constant feedback on students’ progress to help keep track of students’ learning. Students can be assured that their learning is on target and their goals are met.
We also use animated diagrams and special graphics to make the learning of biology fun and easy. Our tutors have experience teaching IB programs and understand the IB curriculum well.
Our tutors inspire and motivate students to reach their potential. The IB Biology subject can be pretty stressful at times.
