    I didnt think it went too bad, the questions were asked in a weird way but I think it went okay.

    Yeah and well done!! Hmmm I'm thinking about biology now.. Having loathed it (along with all science subjects) for the whole GCSE course I actually enjoyed the first exam (I know- what am I?) I got a B in the kick but had a feeling this went better. what you doing at uni?

    Genetics! I did apply for some regular Biology courses, but I don't actually like much human/plant biology so I chose the more specific course.

    I want to do Linguistics at uni, and most unis have English Language as a requirement for that so I'd be pretty devastated if that happened.

    There's only 4 people doing German though, so they said they can't guarantee that it will continue to A2 (although German would probably be the option I would drop after year 12 anyway, so it wouldn't be too bad)

    Speaking for OCR only, there's not a massive level in AS (transcription is covered, but that's about it iirc). However, that branch of biochemistry is covered in quite a bit of depth - there's things on how proteins are formed, and different types of stem cells. There's also some mitosis/meiosis.

    A2 has a fairly hefty level of Genetics. Although the first exam (F214) is mostly human/plant biology, the second exam (F215) has an entire topic dedicated to "cellular control", so it's got things like how alleles are coded and inherited, as well as more mitosis/meiosis.
