OCR AS

This is where students and teachers can access relevant course notes, educational resources, and revision tools that compliment the OCR AS course syllabus. To make things easier the course topics are organised here in roughly the same order that they are presented in the Cambridge Biology 1 for OCR textbook by Jones. At the beginning of each topic is a series of questions to guide students as to what they need to know.

Course Overview

The AS Biology course is divided into topics each covering different key concepts in Biology such as evolution, biodiversity, cells, biological molecules, food and health. The topics make up two units that are assessed at the end of the Lower Sixth along with AS coursework.

For AS coursework students complete a maximum of three practical based tasks (set by OCR) from each of three task types:

  1. Qualitative – 10 Marks
  2. Quantitative – 10 Marks
  3. Evaluative – 20 Marks

The tasks are designed to test various practical skills, which students will have the opportunity to develop over the course of each year. Coursework is completed in class time under exam conditions.

The final grade is based on written examinations (80%) and practical coursework (20%).
