The Advanced Higher Biology Course is based on integrative ideas and unifying principles
of modern biological science. It covers key aspects of life science at the molecular scale
and extends to aspects of the biology of whole organisms that are among the major
driving forces of evolution. In addition, the Advanced Higher Biology Course aims to
develop a sound theoretical understanding and practical experience of experimental
investigative work in biological science.
