Biology means ‘The Study of Life’ is all its variety of forms.

The human race shares this planet with one and half million species of animals and plants, many of which are essential for our survival as a species. It follows, therefore, that knowledge of the science of biology is essential for an understanding of human life and the living environment around us.

The Leaving Certificate Biology course covers 3 major units,

  1. Biology –The study of life
  2. The Cell
  3. The Organism

Students undertake a range of practical work, laboratory work and fieldwork.  100% of the subject is examined in the terminal written exam in June.
