S3 Biology

The S3 Biology course  will help you prepare for the National 4 and 5 qualifications that will be offered next year.

The topics you will study are:

  • Cells
  • Reactions
  • Inheritance
  • Environment

You will be issued with notes which you need to keep safe for revision for assessments in S3 (and in S4 if Biology is one of your chosen subjects). If you lose your notes click on the topic list above to download and print your own replacement copies.

You will be assessed by a variety of means including end of unit tests, practical skills, reports and investigations.

A portfolio of your performance will be compiled throughout the year and along with reports from your class teacher will be used to help us recommend what course and level of study would be most appropriate for you in S4 if you wish to consider continuing your studies in the Biology department.

Copies of all S3 notes are available for download on Edmodo.
