This is a personal learning checklist (PLC) tailored for the first year of the new AQA Biology Advanced Level specification. This is an excel spreadsheet with five worksheets in total, each one covering specification references:
3.1 Biological molecules
3.3 Organisms exchange materials
3.4 Genetic information
6.1-6.5 Mathematical requirements
Each worksheet contains the full list of statements/learning outcomes taken directly from the specification, along with a grid for students to RAG rate their confidence as well as space to write notes and set targets. The worksheets have been formatted to allow easy printing of each worksheet. Each worksheet can be printed and collated with others to form a full checklist for the entire year.
This is an essential resource for anyone teaching the new biology advanced level specification.
