IGCSE Biology Year 1: FREE TASTER CLASS
Ages 11+, Wednesday 6th Sept,11am UK time
- Zoom class
Welcome to IGCSE Biology TMU style! 66 In this course, which runs over 2 years, we will research and learn about the concepts listed in the IGCSE biology specification. The aim of this course is to learn using discovery and research. We will look at some of the longer exam questions in IGCSE biology and use our knowledge and skills to research the answer and make sure that our knowledge covers all the parts of the IGCSE specification. Please note the course will be taught through research, experimentation, demonstrations, and discussion. We will aim to make this course as interactive and engaging as possible. This course is great for people preparing for IGCSE exams or just looking to learn more about living things and wanting to develop their higher order thinking, analysis, research, and communication skills. Doing the course over 2 years will allow greater exploration and interaction. Exam skills will be emphasised and practiced in the latter part of the course. We will be working from the CAIE IGCSE (9-1) specification. The specification is different for people who want to take the 2022 exam and people who want to take the exam between 2023 and 2025. You can find the relevant specifications here: Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Biology 0970 (cambridgeinternational.org) This course will run over 2-years but you can sign up to it in 6 week blocks. If you sign up for the whole year, you will receive a 6% discount on the course fees. If your Thinker would like to prepare for the in a year, please be in touch. This can be organised, but will require more independent weekly work from your Thinker. Alternatively, as the course develops if any Thinkers would like to be move faster toward an exam, we will work with them to help. NB Thinkers Meet Up will provide a course that covers the all the curriculum content and more. We will work to develop critical thinking and inspire and promote independent research. We can advise when we feel students are ready to succeed in an exam - in terms of content knowledge and exam-skill maturity. It is the parents's responsibility, however, to find an exam centre and register their Thinker for the exam.
We will do our utmost to ensure every booked class takes place. However, we strongly believe in the value of conversation between thinkers. Thus, we will not run a class with less than the minimum number of students. If we do not have a full group 24 hours before the class is set to start we will, sadly, cancel the session, refund all participants, and seek to run the class at a different time. Our full booking and cancellation policy can be found in our Terms and Services.
