Biology is at the centre of all life and through this subject students will explore the living world, its ecology, plant and animal life processes, evolution, and relationships between biology and technology. Along with gaining an understanding of themselves, the world, and how organisms survive and live together, students will develop essential scientific knowledge, methods and techniques. From here, students will be able to analyse scientific information effectively and discuss the wide range of implications science has on our world, including medical and environmental issues. It is a broad interest subject and important for many careers, from health professional through to forestry and zoology.
