National 5 Biology is an SQA Qualification...

"The purpose of the Course is to develop learners’ interest and enthusiasm for biology in a range of contexts. The skills of scientific inquiry and investigation are developed, throughout the Course, by investigating the applications of biology. This will enable learners to become scientifically literate citizens, able to review the science-based claims they will meet." SQA

The course consists of three units which are individually assessed. To achieve a course award students must pass the course assessment. Read more about the specifics of this course on the SQA website. Or, find out what National 5's are.
