Biology is the study of life and plays an important role in the understanding the complex forms of life including humans, animals and plants.  Biology helps individuals understand interaction between humanity and the world.  It also develops interest in the lives of living organisms in an effort to preserve them.  

Studying biology is the foundation for discoveries and inventions that improve the quality of life. It is a broad subject with various branches. Studying biology further is essential for a future career in medicine, ecology, agriculture, forensics.

Chemistry Staff

Chemistry is the study of the essential matter that makes up the universe.  It is regularly referred to as the central science, it is everywhere in the world that surround us.  It's in the food we eat, the clothes we wear, medicines we take, the air we breath and the components of our bodies.  Chemistry allows us to understand the changes in the world around us, not only just the chemical reactions in every day life but it also develops useful literacy and numeracy skills.

Physics is the study of the universe.  Discoveries in physics have led to far reaching technological advances in; spaceflight, communications, medicine and engineering.  Indeed, it was a physicist who invented the internet.  An individual carrying out investigations into physics phenomena can expect to develop a range of analytical, problem solving, interpersonal and communication skills, which are essential for the economic development of a  country like Scotland. The large number of skills enjoyed by physicists make them an ideal choice for a wide range of jobs and companies.
SQA’s Physics qualifications give learners an insight into the underlying nature of our world and its place in the universe. From the sources of the energy we use, to the exploration of space, Physics covers a range of applications of the relationships that have been discovered through experiment and calculation.
