Salters-Nuffield AS/A level Biology focuses on:
Developing a deep subject understanding: SNAB uses real-life contexts to engage students and make learning relevant. Biological principles are introduced as required in each situation, with the whole course carefully designed to develop ideas across contexts, building on ideas to consolidate and extend learning to provide a thorough understanding of the concepts that underpin biology today.
Revisiting ideas in this way allows connections to be made between them, and supports a synoptic approach particularly valuable with the changes to a linear qualification and exams at the end of the two year course.
Understanding the core concepts and acquiring key scientific skills: A key feature of the SNAB course is that students not only develop their biological knowledge and understanding to form a solid basis for any further study in the subject, but they also acquire the wider skills essential to biologists working in the 21st century. SNAB embraces an activity based approach to teaching and learning which is supported by a wealth of print and online resources.
