Course Structure

The
Biology Stage 6 Syllabus

has a Preliminary course and an HSC course. The Preliminary and
HSC courses are organised into a number of modules. The Preliminary modules consist of core
content that would be covered in 120 indicative hours.

The HSC course consists of core and options

organised into a number of modules. The core
content covers 90 indicative hours with ONE option covering 30 indicative hours. Students are
required to cover ONE of the options.

Practical experiences are an essential component of both the Preliminary and H
SC courses.
Students will complete 80 indicative hours of practical/field work during both the Preliminary
and HSC courses with no less than 35 indicative hours of practical experiences in the HSC
course. Practical experiences must include at least one ope
n
-
ended investigation integrating
skill and knowledge outcomes in both the Preliminary and HSC courses.

Practical experiences should emphasise hands
-
on activities, including:




undertaking laboratory experiments, including the use of appropriate computer
-
based
technologies



fieldwork



research, using a wide range of sources, including print materials, the Internet and digital
technologies



using computer simulations for modelling or manipulating data



using and reorganising secondary data



extracting
and reorganising information in the form of flow charts, tables, graphs, diagrams,
prose and keys



using animation, video and film resources to capture/obtain information not available in
other forms.
