We will clarify areas of a subject that are of most concern to individual students based on a detailed analysis of their requirements before the course. This will ensure that our tutors design a bespoke programme and cover relevant examination questions and techniques during the course.

Our one day course will cover the following specific areas:


  • Cells: cell structure, cell division, transport in cells, enzymes, coordination and control

  • Organisation: gaseous exchange systems, digestion, transport systems, plant organisation, non–communicable disease

  • Infection and response: communicable diseases, treating curing and preventing
    diseases, monoclonal antibodies, plant disease, making medicines

  • Bioenergetics: photosynthesis, respiration

  • Homeostasis and response: the nervous system, the human endocrine system,
    hormones in human reproduction, homeostasis, plant hormones

  • Inheritance, variation, evolution, natural selection and genetics: reproduction the genome and gene expression, genetic inheritance, variation, changing the genes, evolution, classification of living organisms
