Operational competence is determined by the set of abilities and skills necessary for educational and cognitive activity. It is the ability to apply knowledge in practice, to plan and carry out biological research, to solve cognitive tasks and problem situations.The pupils’ research competence is the possession of biological research methods, the use of knowledge in practice, the ability to formulate goals, problem, research hypothesis, plan, experiment, analyze its results, draw conclusions.Cognitive competence is a pupil’s characteristic that is revealed in his ability to perform independent cognitive activity aimed at solving cognitive problems on the basis of theoretical, practical readiness and experience of educational-cognitive activity (autonomy of decisions, activity and thinking).The complex analysis of this problem makes it possible to assert that biological competence is a multifaceted category that requires the integration of its components, therefore, the positive dynamics of the levels of the formation of biological competence is manifested in the simultaneous formation of all its components.
