Course Concept

A-Level Biology is an advanced level course that delves deeper into the study of living organisms and their biological processes. It builds upon the foundational concepts learned in lower levels of biology education and aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the subject. A-Level Biology is typically taken by students who have a strong interest in the life sciences and plan to pursue higher education or careers in fields such as biology, medicine, biotechnology, or ecology. It is divided in:

  • Cell Biology: This component focuses on the structure and function of cells, including topics such as cell division, cell membranes, cellular respiration, and cell signaling. Students learn about the different organelles within a cell and their roles in carrying out essential functions.
  • Molecular Biology: The molecular biology component explores the structure and function of biomolecules, such as DNA, RNA, and proteins. Topics covered include DNA replication, gene expression, protein synthesis, and genetic engineering. Students gain an understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes.
  • Physiology: This component examines the functioning of various body systems, including topics such as the nervous system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and digestive system. Students learn about the structure and function of organs and tissues and how they work together to maintain homeostasis.
  • Genetics and Evolution: The genetics and evolution component explores the principles of inheritance, genetic variation, and evolutionary processes. Topics covered include Mendelian genetics, population genetics, natural selection, speciation, and the mechanisms of evolution. Students gain insights into how genetic variation leads to biodiversity and the adaptation of organisms over time.
  • Ecology: The ecology component focuses on the study of interactions between organisms and their environment. Topics covered include ecosystems, population dynamics, nutrient cycles, and environmental sustainability. Students learn about the interconnectedness of living organisms and their role in maintaining ecological balance.

  • Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    expand_more

    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
