"Excellent for extension work and as a way of carrying out differentiation.
I set questions for my students to answer in their workbooks.  This is followed by self assessment in the classroom when I share the mark scheme with them."

About the Specifications

This is a fully revised series for the new OCR AS and A Level specifications for Biology A*. The authors gave considerable thought and analysis to their approach in developing a student-friendly yet comprehensive resource for the revised specifications, opting for a flexible, concept-based approach over the context-based design of the B specification. The choice of a concept-based arrangement did not preclude a wide and varied use of appropriate contexts for content delivery, but provided greater flexibility to approach topics thematically, scaffold learning, and make conceptual connections across different topics.

*Level 3 Advanced Subsidiary GCE in Biology A (H020) and Level 3 Advanced GCE in Biology A (H420)
