How the “unified study” approach is helping to raise biology results at A and AS level

One of the fundamental differences between the talented student who takes naturally to the study of biology at A and AS level, and those who are less drawn to the subject, is the ability to grasp the essence of the subject of biology, as a unity.

These more adept students recognise the different strands of the subject and seem to have a natural ability to grasp both the detail of each element of the course they are studying, alongside an overview that helps them greatly when they come to the exam.

It is with this particular thought in mind that we have produced a resource that allows students to grasp both the detail and the overview of the biology course they are studying, all in one volume.

This resource gives the students the key information they need, a guide to how the different in-depth topics link together and the activities which help ingrain the resultant learning in the long term memory.

And all of this is done through one, single resource.  A resource that is a student workbook, a textbook, a study guide and an activity book, all in one single volume.

Now I know this seems like rather a broad and ambitious claim, which is why I would like the chance to show you how it has been done.

To see this just choose the exam board you are using: AQA,   OCR,  EdexcelIB, or Cambridge and then click the “free preview button” for a sample download.

I really do think that once you have seen exactly what we have done you’ll agree that this is a new approach which can help your students maximise their understanding of biology and hence raise their grades.
