1) IGCSE Biology: Aims 

The aims describe the purposes of a course based on this syllabus. You can deliver some of the aims using suitable local, international or historical examples and applications, or through collaborative experimental work.

The aims are to:

    • provide an enjoyable and worthwhile educational experience for all learners, whether or not they go on to study science beyond this level
    • enable learners to acquire sufficient knowledge and understanding to:
      • become confident citizens in a technological world and develop an informed interest in scientific matters
      • be suitably prepared for studies beyond Cambridge IGCSE
    • allow learners to recognise that science is evidence-based and understand the usefulness, and the limitations, of scientific method
    • develop skills that:
      • are relevant to the study and practice of chemistry
      • are useful in everyday life – encourage a systematic approach to problem-solving
      • encourage efficient and safe practice
      • encourage effective communication through the language of science
    • develop attitudes relevant to chemistry such as:
      • concern for accuracy and precision
      • objectivity
      • integrity
      • enquiry
      • initiative
      • inventiveness
    • enable learners to appreciate that:
      • science is subject to social, economic, technological, ethical and cultural influences and limitations
    • the applications of science may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the community and the environment.
