CSEC Human and Social Biology by Mr. Javaughn Deeble



Human beings require knowledge of the ways in which the human body functions, of the interdependence of living things, and of the ways the total environment functions to support life on
earth in all its forms, in order to make intelligent decisions on matters at home, at work or in society, which routinely affect their health and, therefore, the quality of their lives. The study of Human and Social Biology provides students at secondary schools with an opportunity to begin acquiring this knowledge.

Human and Social Biology is concerned with the study of the structure and functioning of the human body. It also involves the application of biological principles, knowledge and skills, and technological advances, to the maintenance of health and to solve the problems of living together. The subject incorporates the view that human beings have a responsibility to their environment and, as such, have an obligation to conserve, protect, maintain and improve its quality.


The syllabus aims to:

  1. develop an understanding of the structure and functioning of the human body;
  2. increase awareness about the interdependence of living things as they live in harmony with the environment;
  3. develop competencies that will enable students to adopt healthy lifestyles;
  4. develop experimental and data interpretation skills;
  5. increase awareness of technological advances;
  6. provide a foundation for further study or specialised training in fields such as, nursing, physiotherapy or dietetics, which require an understanding of the structure and functioning of the human body and the application of biological principles to the maintenance of health and healthy living.

Each individual was born to fulfil a divine purpose, we are all endowed with unique gifts and talents that can be utilized in a meaningful manner. I strongly believe that my purpose is to assist in the betterment and relieving the suffering of humanity. Science, especially the field of medicine has proven to be a great vehicle through which this can be achieved. I am indeed passionate about medicine, particularly the branch of Neurology and feel that I possesses the drive, commitment, work ethic and focus that is needed/required to acquire success in my pursuit of medicine. The medical field needs doctors that are gifted with compassion, knowledge, and an understanding heart to help alleviate the many challenges that people who are unwell might be facing. All persons deserve good medical care, regardless of their age, economic status and or academic abilities. It is my firm conviction that God has directed me to share His love by assisting others and this will be done through medicine. If given the opportunity I have no doubt that I can successfully complete this program and eventually become a great doctor fulfilling my lifelong dream.
