This subject explores health and bioscience through the lens of current and topical issues. Students investigate the factors affecting health from the molecular to the societal level, examine cells, the building blocks of living things and study the wonder of how different cells work together in functional systems. This subject provides students with experience in locating, evaluating and communicating health and bioscience information and develops scientific knowledge and skills especially in the areas of basic Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. Further, the subject allows students to reflect on the interdependent relationship between human health and the wider world, both living and nonliving.
