I have recently completed my GCSE's and am in the midst of deciding what to study at A level. I completed my Science GCSE in Applied Science, and have certainly got at least AB, probably AA overall. I was contemplating the possibility of studying Biology alongside History, Geography, English Literature and Law in my first year of sixth form, conceivably aware that the Biology course would only be completed for the duration of the first year, as an AS. I was wondering whether or not the applied science GCSE I have recently completed is enough at least to to enter the course; I am not afraid at all of the opportunity of hard graft, and seem inexplicably invigorated at the challenge of pursuing Biology. Is there any advice anyone could offer regarding the rigorousness of the course, usual requirements or even general topics which are often studied in the first year; if by rereading a textbook over the summer containing the valid info on the course specification would indeed be enough for me to begin the year studying Biology?
