- Cell cycle and cell growth, death and differentiation
Our Year 11 Biology program addresses all relevant syllabus outcomes in the VCE. Students learn how cells, plant and animal systems function, and about inheritance and the impact of inherited adaptations on diversity. A solid understanding of these core concepts is an essential foundation for all students in preparing for Year 12.
Your content plan appears in the learning environment, sequenced to your learning needs and accessible with ease by you and your tutor.

“My son Ben has had 13 on line chem sessions with Cluey leading up to his final exams. I chose Cluey over a range of online and personal tutoring options because they talked to Ben's needs and offered high calibre tutors with a depth of knowledge of current curricula. The on line platform is also excellent. Ben's grade average has progressively increased and he is looking forward to his final exam with the confidence he was lacking months ago.”
