By covering the above topics, students will be well prepared for any trial and mid year exams. In addtion they will have completed the necessary revision for the end of year exam which has the following requirements:
Students undertake a 130-minute examination.
Stage 2 science inquiry skills and science understanding from all Stage 2 Biology topics may be assessed.
The examination questions will be of different types and:
- may require students to show an understanding of science as a human endeavour
- may require students to apply their science understanding from more than one topic
Pursuant to the topics outlined below and covered in the above program.
The topics at Stage 2 are:
- Topic 1: DNA and proteins
- Topic 2: Cells as the basis of life
- Topic 3: Homeostasis
- Topic 4: Evolution
