Introduction:

Welcome to Biology iGCSE Year 11! This page is where you will find the scope of work, classroom expectations and useful resources. There will also be links to useful revision sites that can be used for independent study.


Biography of Ms Nandia:

I am a Science teacher with 23 years of teaching experience- half of that teaching in South Africa and the most recent half teaching in London UK. My education includes a Masters degree in Science as well as several other teaching qualifications. I have also been a Biology examiner for different exam boards as I believe it helps me understand the curriculum requirements better. I love the outdoors, am a keen gardener and support Tottenham during football season but always South Africa for rugby and cricket!
