AQA Exam Board
Units 1-4 are taught in year 12 and can be used towards the AS Biology course. Units 5-8 are taught in year 13. Each unit will have a discrete end of unit test, plus an end of year 12-exam scheme, which will be marked in college by your teacher. These results will enable you and your teacher to assess where you are and what you need to do to improve throughout the course. External assessment by the examination board will take place at the end of year 13. As part of your assessment, your ability to conduct scientific investigations will be examined by your teacher throughout the course. CPAC lab books are kept as a record of this.
