IGCSE Human Biology

The Edexcel IGCSE Human Biology course is designed to follow the structure of the Edexcel 4HB1 specification for examinations from summer 2019. This exam can be sat in January or June. Please note that January 2023 will be the last January sitting for this board. They will be moving their second sitting to November 2023 and from then on the sittings will be June and November.

It allows students to:

  • study the structure and functions of human biology
  • appreciate how the human organism maintains itself
  • study human relationships with other animals and the dependence on plants
  • learn how humans can best modify their environment and habits to produce healthy conditions for present and future populations.

We have written the courses in response to the needs of home-educating parents and students but they are equally suited to any private candidate who wishes to study Human Biology IGCSE.

Students can start at any time and work at their own pace towards taking the exams

How the course works:

It follows the set textbook and covers each topic in turn:

  • setting out what needs to be learnt
  • suggesting spellings and definitions which may be tricky
  • providing diagrams to label and annotate
  • giving details of practical activities and experiments to carry out
