Year 11 Biology

Our Year 11 Biology tutoring program begins at the beginning of Term 1 of each year and runs up to the end of Term 3, with the Year 12 HSC Biology tutoring program commencing in Term 4.

Year 11 Biology Course Overview

Our Year 11 Preliminary Biology tutoring program starts at the beginning of the syllabus and over the course of three terms, will comprehensively cover all syllabus dot-points and outcomes of the year 11 Biology syllabus. As there is no assumed knowledge, the program is ideal for year 11 Biology students wanting a strong foundation towards their HSC Biology course in year 12.

This course is ideal for:

  • Students who intending to or are doing year 11 Biology
  • Year 11 Biology students wanting a strong foundation towards their HSC Biology course

2 hour weekly lessons + 1 hour weekly Workshop Tutorial


Tutoring course materials (concept explanations, summaries, study notes, example questions, worked solutions and exam-style homework) are provided each week in the form of a theory and homework booklet


Tutoring homework is expected to be completed and will be fully marked each week, with comments detailing every point of improvement


Free online homework help


Topic Tests administered at the end of each major topic, with marks and vital statistics reported in the End of Term report


Online access to our repository of Biology resources, exam papers with solutions and course summaries

Depth Studies and First-hand Investigations

From 2018 onwards, the syllabus requires Year 11 and Year 12 students to do a Depth Study, in each year, which could count 15% – 30% of your total assessment for the year. Common forms the Depth Study can take are:

  • Designing and performing a First-hand investigation
  • Secondary source analysis (writing a report / conducting literature review etc)

In addition to covering all theoretic content of the Year 11 Biology syllabus, our course will also provide students with actionable and practical guidance for their Depth Study assessment.
