The O-Level Biology syllabus is created to place far more emphasis on understanding and applying scientific principles and concepts than it does on factual information.

This method has been implemented in awareness of the need for students to cultivate abilities that will be of long-term use in a world that is becoming more complex and globalised, as opposed to focusing on a lot of factual information that might only be relevant in the short term.
