Modern syllabuses tend to have two written papers each at A1 and A2 level along with practical assessments. Across all of the boards there is a wide range of topics covered such as the structure of the cell and basic biochemistry. There is also a good deal of emphasis on transport systems in mammals and plants and the structure and function of the major mammalian tissues and organs (heart, kidney, muscle and liver). In addition, the topics of photosynthesis and respiration are covered in all syllabuses. Ecology, Evolution, Genetics, Reproduction, Pathology and Immunology are covered to greater or lesser extents in the different modules. Some Maths and no Physics is required but Chemistry A level is a great advantage in the study of basic biochemistry, photosynthesis and respiration.
