What you learn

The Biology Stage 6 Syllabus explores the diversity of life from a molecular to a biological systems level. The course examines the interactions between living things and the environments in which they live. It explores the application of biology and its significance in finding solutions to health and sustainability issues in a changing world. There are 57 lessons in the HSC Study Lab Year 12 Biology course, which corresponds to the 120 indicative hours of study required by the syllabus.

Year 12 Biology course structure and requirements

Module 7 Infectious disease
Module 8 Non-infectious disease and disorders
  • HSC Study Lab 57 Lessons Video lessons by expert teachers that cover the NSW Year 12 Biology Syllabus comprehensively. The videos fully explain complex biology questions through animations, first-hand investigations (filmed at Macquarie University science labs), and tutorials.
  • HSC Study Lab Hundreds of practice questions 57 lesson quizzes that include a variety of question types. This course also includes 17 content level and 4 module level tests, as well as an end of course practice exam.
  • HSC Study Lab 20 Games and simulators The games and simulators help you explore and understand key learning outcomes and put theory into practice. The course also includes additional resources such as an interactive Periodic Table.
  • HSC Study Lab Working Scientifically Our Working Scientifically activities will look like mini projects at the end of each module (there are four in total in this course). The Working Scientifically activities include virtual interactive experiments, processing of data and/or report writing, depending on the specific requirements of the Working Scientifically outcomes for that module. Each activity will produce a report based on the student’s input, that can be downloaded and submitted to their teacher.
  • HSC Study Lab Depth Studies The course will also feature a student-led Depth Study, which will be a guided template taking them through the steps of conducting an independent scientific study. Again, the Depth Studies section features a downloadable report that the student can use for their reference or submit to their teacher.
