Welcome to the BioNinja Website!

Welcome to Bioninja v2.0 (beta) – a website designed specifically for the new IB syllabus (2016)

  • This website is still under development so there are several features currently missing 
  • For access to the old version (with songs and video tutorials), click here


What is currently available:

  • The entire SL syllabus
  • Some of the HL syllabus (topic 7.1 – 7.3, topic 10.1 – 10.3, topic 11.1) 



What is coming in the future:

The following features are planned for the future (order of completion will depend on demand):

  • The rest of the HL syllabus and all of the options (highest priority – hopefully completed by the end of 2016)
  • BioNinja App (iPhone/Android)
  • Topic summaries in PDF form
  • Updated video tutorials (not a high priority – just visit the old site for some slightly dated versions)
  • Biology songs (currently available on the old site)
  • Online quizzes
  • PSOW guide
  • An e-Book


Why the change?

While the new IB syllabus covers much the same content as the old syllabus, the style has changed significantly:

  • The old syllabus was organised into dot points, each of which included a specific command term that identified the level of knowledge required
  • The new syllabus is organised into assessment statements that do not include command terms – this makes the knowledge requirements broader and vague


To reflect this change, the new website no longer addresses content as an itemised list, however every assessment statement is still specifically covered

  • For each sub-topic, assessment statements are grouped and organised by subject matter and explained as part of the core content
  • Additional information that helps with understanding but is not specifically referenced by an assessment statement is included as extra content


The new layout is not as concise as the old layout, but this is because the new syllabus is not as concise as the old syllabus

  • The new layout is a lot prettier than the old layout though – hope you like it!


Want to be heard?

I am keen to receive (constructive) feedback and have set up a dedicated email account to hear your thoughts:  bioninjaib@hotmail.com

  • Is there a problem with the site?  (i.e. broken links, etc.)
  • Don’t like the new format and have a better idea?  (no such thing as a bad idea)
  • What feature would you like to be added next?  (features will be added in order of demand)
  • Any ideas for further improvement?  (are there areas where more/less information is required?)
  • Just want to tell me how great I am?  (I don’t mind… seriously! ;P)


Just remember: This is still a work in progress, so be constructive and considerate with any feedback (bioninjas hate trolls)


Don’t be a Troll!
