We are proud to be part of the world’s largest international community of schools.
We offer a wide range of AS and A level courses.
A level Biology (International) is available only to students based outside the UK. It builds directly on the work you will have done for IGCSE or equivalent in the subject. Grade B or 6 at IGCSE or the equivalent is required before starting on the A level. Due to the knowledge of Mathematics and Chemistry required, we also require that you have Grade B or 6 in Maths and Chemistry at IGCSE or equivalent before embarking on this subject. Wolsey Hall offers the relevant IGCSE courses should they be necessary. All students undertaking Wolsey Hall A levels must also have IGCSE in English Language at Grade C or 4.
You will not be expected to carry out experiments during the exam; however, you are expected to develop your experimental skills, and a knowledge and understanding of practical techniques is necessary as any of the exam papers may assess your understanding of the scientific method, particularly in relation to the core practicals listed in the syllabus.
We have developed resources in conjunction with the Lab Book so that home students can familiarise themselves with the methods by watching appropriate YouTube videos, and using hypothetical data to complete as many of the questions as possible. Where feasible, you may even be able to carry out a simplified method at home. These resources are all self-assessed, as the answers to analytical questions are provided with the Lab Book, but your tutor is available to answer any questions.
All of our A level courses include a number of past exam papers in the final module. These include the most recent paper which can be taken as a mock exam and submitted to your Tutor for assessment and feedback for a modest additional fee.
The initial study advice I received was easy to understand. My Tutors were more than helpful and were quick to answer any of my questions and grade my assignments. My Student Progress Manager was excellent in not only guiding me but keeping me up to date on events and other stuff also.

I really love the way the Wolsey Hall Oxford homeschooling system works. It gives you spare time to focus on the things that are important to you. I really like that whenever we struggled with anything there was a lot of help available and the Tutors are very helpful.
