What you will learn

recall and communicate precise knowledge and display comprehensive understanding of scientific phenomena, facts, laws, definitions, concepts and theories of Biology

apply scientific concepts and theories to present reasoned explanations of familiar and unfamiliar phenomena, to solve complex problems involving several stages, and to make reasoned predictions and hypotheses

be confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others

analyse data to identify any patterns or trends, taking account of limitations in the quality of the data and justifying the conclusions reached

better understand the technological world, with an informed interest in scientific matters

develop relevant attitudes, such as a concern for accuracy and precision, objectivity, integrity, enquiry, initiative and inventiveness

recognise the usefulness (and limitations) of scientific method, and how to apply this to other disciplines and in everyday life

better understand the influence and limitations placed on scientific study by society, economy, technology, ethics, the community and the environment

develop an understanding of the scientific skills essential for both further study and everyday life.


The mission of this course is to deliver world-class international education in Biology through the provision of high-quality curricula, assessment and services. It has been designed considering the following qualities to bring in our students:

  • confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others

  • responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others

  • reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn

  • innovative and equipped for new and future challenges

  • engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.

This course is suitable for biology students of IGCSE| GCSE O level| AQA | Edexcel and other relevant syllabus.

It is to allow learners to recognise that science is evidence based and understand the usefulness, and the
limitations, of scientific method to develop skills that:

• are relevant to the study and practice of biology
• are useful in everyday life
• encourage a systematic approach to problem-solving
• encourage efficient and safe practice
• encourage effective communication through the language of science

Also, to develop attitudes relevant to biology such as:

• concern for accuracy and precision
• objectivity
• integrity
• enquiry
• initiative
• inventiveness

- to enable learners to appreciate that:

• science is subject to social, economic, technological, ethical and cultural influences and limitations
• the applications of science may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the community
and the environment

I find this course good but it had many topics which would be considered basic of biology. I understand there are people who don't know these topics but I would like a course which covers more detailed topic in the vast field of biology

This course was excellent, where have you been all beginning of science students' studies? The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and articulate. I will highly recommend this type of teaching. If you want to study in the Biological system - take this course. Sure It will be helping you.

This is horribly presented. It is only 4 hours and I cant refund since I waited so long to start it so I will churn through it but bad experience.
March 11, 2021
There are not many courses available for these topics and I am glad I picked the course, I am really learning from this, a happy student, thank you!

Thank you to sharing with us that's an informative video. However, I am overwhelmed by the amazing and amazing amount of resources. I'm extremely happy about it. I felt the course was well organized and easy to follow. Thank you!

This has been a very helpful class to take to review on biology. I am glad that I have taken my time to take this course,

The course is quite clear and teaches me what i wanted though I wish there would be more topics covered in the course.

I absolutely loved this course. All the information supplied in this course was once so difficult for me to understand but after taking this course, I found myself answering practice questions a lot more easier and I also was able to explain certain definitions and processes without any hastle. Ms. Humaira has explained topics in such depth with extra keywords and given such useful tips that I apply almost everyday during my biology lessons. I have become better at answering rapid fire questions as i think more logically. I have definitely benefited from this course and I hope Ms. Humaira keeps making more of these courses with new topics! Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to excel in my classes and further expand my knowledge in biology as it is what I want to pursue in my later years!

Taking such a professional and skillful Biology course was my best decision ever because i was very confused in many concepts but in this course teacher has explained it in such a manner that it developed my interest and i want to learn more. I wish the teacher can cover other topics as well so waiting for the next course.

This course has really helped me a lot in my final term exam. I didn't exactly know what to expect from this course, but I'm now actually very thankful that this course was created. All the points are given and everything was very professionally done. I got an 'A' for my biology exam because of this course. Thank you very much Ms Humaira, I'm thankful for your wonderful efforts into making this for us students who are going to be taking our IGCSE soon. I really do encourage students who needs help in their biology to do this course because it'll definitely help.

I discovered Ms. Humaira when I was looking for biology courses on Udemy. When I watched her videos, I understood everything that she said. I didn't know that biology was so easy. I tried to do an online quiz and it was so much easier than before. Her videos are very examplary and had all the keywords that an IGCSE candidate needs. In my opinion, I think that Ms. Humaira is a really good biology teacher as she also encouraged and motivated me to work harder in my biology and get higher marks whenever I failed. She also made me want to study more biology and not just what's in the book. Ms. Humaira is an amazing biology teacher and I hope that more students would find her as helpful as I did.

The course is really awesome. Before taking this course i was not sure how to score maximum marks in the exam. The teacher is well versed in the syllabus content and seems to be very experienced and professional. I highly recommend this course especially to those who want to set academic foundation for Biology. Also thanks to udemy for providing us the platform where we can find such professional teachers.

You will definitely not become a ‘Biology Pro’ after this course – it contains basic information on some of the biological processes; I even doubt if the lecturer is a professional in this field: the rhetoric and examples used in the lectures suggest she is only interested in the topic of biology. And she makes mistakes while describing basic biological terms, one of which is mixing mitosis with meiosis at the very beginning of the course which is – to say the least – highly inappropriate for a high school student, not mentioning a professional. Btw, why were these two crucial processes not described in the lectures? There is not a single minute dedicated to the basic feature defining life – reproduction. Other physiological processes are described only in a very general way, animal tissue description has been omitted, the lecturer arbitrary selects the topics as if these were some articles in a newspaper, while biology is a network of processes that altogether make a bunch of cells constitute an organism. To summarize, I do not recommend this course, especially not for beginners who would like to actually learn biology as it contains many errors. Finally, I strongly recommend Udemy to have someone validate content of the courses before selling them to people.

Its a very detailed and informative course that I understand with no effort at all. This course has really helped me with my exam revision. I think all biology enthusiasts should take up this course

One of the best biology courses i have every taken. I find it even better than Crash Course Anatomy and Phisiology as well as Crash Course Biology. I hope the creator (Ms. Humaira) makes more good work like this.
