Description

  • This programme is open to students taking the IGCSE 0610 (Biology) core/extended syllabuses.
  • This programme is designed for students to review the key topics for the IGCSE examination and focuses on honing students’ mastery in question and data analysis, answering techniques and error analysis. Students learn essential strategies such as how to identify key concepts and key phrases in the answering of open-ended questions and to avoid common misconceptions and common pitfalls made when answering and analysing questions.
  • Worked examples introduce students to common answering techniques that guide them in completing the formative assessment tests. Each test for each topic exposes students to a comprehensive range of common exam questions to ensure that students consolidate all the important key concepts through attempting questions of increasing difficulty. This will help students to reinforce conceptual understanding, learn how to accurately analyse and apply concepts and ultimately, achieve exam excellence.
