Cambridge International AS & A Level Biology fosters the development of transferable skills, encompassing data handling, practical problem-solving, and the application of the scientific method. Learners cultivate essential attitudes, including a strong focus on accuracy, precision, objectivity, integrity, curiosity, initiative, and creativity. These acquired competencies enable them to excel in future academic pursuits or professional endeavors, as they gain the vital scientific acumen needed for their progression.


Cells as the Building Blocks of Life: Cells form the foundation of all living organisms, with prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells being the fundamental types. Exploring cellular functions provides insights into the underlying processes of life.

Biochemical Processes: Within cells, dynamic biochemical processes drive life's chemistry. Molecular biology and biochemistry elucidate the functioning of cells and their significance.

DNA - The Molecule of Heredity: DNA, the molecule of heredity, ensures the continuity and evolution of life. It accurately stores genetic information, replicates it in daughter cells, and facilitates controlled protein production. Genetic mutations, essential for evolution, result in genetic variation.

Natural Selection: As the primary mechanism of evolution, natural selection acts on genetic variation, including speciation. It leads to the accumulation of beneficial genetic mutations in populations, allowing adaptation to changing environments.

Organisms and Their Environment: All living organisms interact with their biotic and abiotic surroundings. Understanding these interactions empowers biologists to comprehend the impact of human activities on ecosystems, conserve biodiversity effectively, and predict the implications of environmental changes.

Observation and Experimentation: Biology's various branches are interconnected and cannot be studied in isolation. Observation, inquiry, experimentation, and fieldwork form the foundation of biology. These practices collect relevant evidence, leading to the formulation of new models and theories. These concepts are continually tested, refined, and supported by evidence, fostering robust and evidence-based understanding.

At UniHawk, we're passionate about nurturing the next generation of scientific minds through the Cambridge International AS & A Level Biology program. This curriculum not only imparts biological knowledge but also fosters essential transferable skills, such as data handling, practical problem-solving, and the application of the scientific method.

Comprehensive Study Material:

Our focus is ensuring mastery of concepts and not memorization. Our study materials bundle is simple to go over after class, yet concomitantly entails all essential knowledge needed for the subject.

Organised Study Schedule:

Students require individualised guidance, with constant motivation, clear expectations and deadlines to reach their maximum potential in a subject. Our instructors do so by directing them through personalised study roadmaps, and by fostering accountability and discipline in students through regular engagement and practice.

Practice with past papers and mock exams:

While students do fall behind in their grade due to gaps in knowledge of concepts

Regular review and student evaluation:

Helps make students ready for the Exam day. Regular review and evaluation reduces overall stress and boosts confidence. Students thus feel ready than ever to tackle the exam!

How can we help?

At UniHawk, our instructors will provide you with a wide array of resources alongside continual guidance. Here’s a sneak peak for you:

To develop these skills, students require guided practice. Here, a common way is working with past papers. It benefits them immensely when they receive expert insight and strategies while doing past papers.

Our website provides information about the assessment structure for A Level and AS Level papers. Below, we offer details about each paper:

Paper 1

Paper 4

Paper 2

Paper 5

These papers cover a variety of assessment types and durations, catering to both AS and A Level students. The weightage of each paper is designed to contribute to the overall qualification while emphasizing specific skills and knowledge areas. The assessment structure ensures a comprehensive evaluation of students’ abilities in different aspects of the subject.
