Specification version 1.6 is available

Friday 2 Oct 2015

Version 1.6 of the A-level Biology specification is now available.

During the summer, we wrote to all schools and colleges who had entered for A-level Biology and/or A-level Human Biology to inform teachers that we were producing common ISAs and EMPAs for these two subjects in 2016.

As a result, we have made some changes to the administrative sections of the specification, including the entry codes to be used in 2016. Any changes made from the previous specification are highlighted using sidebars.

There have been no changes made to the subject content.

The separate instructions for the administration of ISA and EMPA documents for Biology and Human Biology will be combined and the new common administration documents will be published on both the subject webpages and Secure Key Materials by 15 November 2015.

If you need any further guidance, please email the A-level science subject team or call 01483 477 756 (option 2).
