Biology

The H2 Biology syllabus is developed as a seamless continuum from the O-Level to the A-Level, without the need for topics to be revisited at the A-Level. Students who intend to offer H2 Biology will therefore be assumed to have knowledge and understanding of O-Level Biology. O-Level Biology addresses how life works at the physiological level, while A-Level Biology deals addresses how life works at the cellular and molecular levels while understanding its implications at the physiological level. While these topics at the A-Level provide insights into the knowledge acquired from the O-Level, new topics such as Viruses, Genetics, Evolution and Climate Change are also introduced. 

At TMJC, we include Biology learning activities that encourage our students to be self-directed, active and collaborative learners. These include:
  • Breeding of live fruit-flies to demonstrate the inheritance of eye-colour.
  • Counting of corn kernels to demonstrate the inheritance of kernel texture and colour.
  • Investigating the effect of heat on respiration in mealworms, relating the implications to Climate Change.
