Should I study IB Biology

IB Biology is offered at Higher Level (HL) and Standard Level (SL). It is highly recommended that students who would like to further their studies in a medical/biochemical/biomedical related discipline at university do Biology at HL. Students will also benefit from studying the IB Biology course alongside the IB Chemistry course, as there are a number of topics in IB Biology that are related to the IB Chemistry syllabus (e.g. concepts in Molecular biology overlap with concepts in Biochemistry).

How to get a 7 in IB Biology

The IB Biology course involves an understanding of living organisms in various fields (molecular, cellular, physiological, behavioral and ecological), as well as the learning and development of scientific hypothesis and the development of skills in analyzing data from scientific investigations. There is a common misconception amongst IB Biology students that you can achieve a high score in this course by simply memorizing Biological concepts. In order to attain a 7, students must not only be able to interpret the results of table/graphical formats in unfamiliar scientific investigations but also plan and present their understanding of biological mechanisms.

CANA’s support in IB Biology

In our lessons and courses, we introduce students to the fundamental concepts of IB Biology and highlight topics the examiner frequently likes to test. We also explain how to analyze tables and graphs in data-based questions and provide our students with intensive materials to help them learn and memorize concepts in an efficient way.

We also provide internal assessment coaching for students who struggle with IA in Biology. Our experienced IB Biology teachers not only guide the students through the planning stage but also recommend the best way to perform the experiment. We will teach you how to process and present the data and evaluate the investigation based on the hypothesis proposed to ensure you excel in your Biology IA!*

*We recommend that you to send us your Exploration topic or contact us to brainstorm together before the class, so we can gather relevant materials for the lesson.

Our IB Biology Tutors


The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.
