Description

Cambridge IGCSE Biology develops that we offer at torus uses a set of transferable skills including handling data, practical problem-solving and applying the scientific method. Learners develop relevant attitudes, such as concern for accuracy and precisionobjectivityintegrityenquiryinitiative and inventiveness. They acquire the essential scientific skills required for progression to further studies or employment.

  1. Our approach in Cambridge IGCSE Biology at torus encourages learners to be:

confident, interested in learning about science, questioning ideas and using scientific language to communicate.

their views and opinions

    responsible, working methodically and safely when working alone or collaboratively with others

      reflective, learning from their experiences and interested in scientific issues that affect the individual, the community and the environment

        innovative, solving unfamiliar problems confidently and creatively

        engaged, keen to develop scientific skills, being curious about scientific principles and their application in the world.
