IGCSE BIOLOGY, HUMAN BIOLOGY OR BOTH?

Southwest science school now offers biology and human biology IGCSEs. So, which should you choose?

THE PROS & CONS OF HUMAN BIOLOGY

  • It is slightly shorter. In a hurry? This might be the one for you.

  • Biology has a 2 hour exam followed by a 1 hour 15 mins exam. Human biology has two 1 hr 45 minutes exams. It's personal preference if this makes a difference to you.

  • There's no animals, plants or the environment. Great if you have no interest.
