Area of Study 1: What is the role of nucleic acids and proteins in maintaining life?
- DNA and RNA
- Transcription and translation
- Protein structure
- DNA manipulation techniques
Our Year 12 Biology program covers all relevant syllabus outcomes in the VCE. Key topics covered are: how cells maintain life, including DNA, and how the yield of a chemical product can be optimise; how life changes and responds to challenges, such as pathogens, and how species are related over time. To excel in Year 12, students must demonstrate a thorough understanding of these concepts and also exhibit competency in exam technique by selecting and providing the relevant information and correctly structuring responses.
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.”
