    I'm sure you don't

    Its really not, there's more application tbh
    Are you being serious? I can't tell :lol:

    How can you 'apply' a fact to a situation, in bio it just is, no explanation as to how it happens!

    I am, why? Lool

    You're not serious right? There's no aspect of biology where you can't explain why something happens

    Well then f.Maths is basically a necessity for me :rofl: as are physics and Chemistry

    Yes there are, there are loads :lol:

    Mutations are mistakes in genetic code, we don't know how it happens on a fundamental level or we'd be able to correct it

    Plus we're never taught it.

    Simple example, mitosis. What's spindle fibres chemical composition, what actually causes it to contract?

    You could use that argument against any subject which doesn't teach 'from first principles' so to speak.

    Why does performing an action on one side of the equation still make sense if you perform the same on the other side? Why does gravity exist?

    For Nat sciences? Are you sure?

    Um, the reasons for mutations are known, and mutations aren't bad things.

    If you go into chemical composition, then that's not really biology, is it? The reason you don't get taught why is because its way too complicated for A-level standards

    Biology is the worst for it though, we're not going into abstract logic.

    Physical NatSci .

    Transcript errors, but what makes that happen? Chemical imbalance or? They can be bad.

    So biology is usefless basically... Here is mitosis. It has 4 stages as well as a 5th in its whole cell cycle.

    This is what happens in each one. How is that useful? I want to know *how* it actually happens, not just stating what we see.

    So physics, maths and chemistry (maybe even biology for the lols)

    Well you are supposed to learn what happens and why, even if it is to a very basic level. A2 biology is more like that tbh so stick around.

    I did maths a while ago so I need f.Maths next year because they don't want a gap in maths. Plus I enjoy it.

    Yeah, biology a2 would be more fun for me but I don't have the space to do it anyway... I'd have put French ahead but even that I cannot choose.

    What sciences do you do? I'm sure you probably enjoy it, even if it is just certain topics

    Physics and Chemistry, almost did Bio (dodged a bullet). Saying that I'd probably be enjoying bio more than I am for chem right now. I enjoy Physics just I dislike the electricity part which is like 30%

    Never understood how people can like physics, but I agree with you, electricity is the worst. I actually loved chemistry, what don't you like about it?

    Just a general dislike for the subject. Can be interesting at times but it's quite dreary mostly. Physics is quite similar though, stuff like waves, magnetic fields just bore me

    Fair enough, can't argue with you there. Well best of luck with it (and try to enjoy it as much as you can, you tend to do better if you enjoy it)

    Biology at A2 is much better, I found AS bio is way more wooly and fluffy. A2 is more interesting and fun (especially unit 5 :sexface:) all them sliding filament theory, action potential and resting potentials :sexface:
    I'm considering it :hmmmm2:
    If I keep them all on, I'm technically still doing 4 subjects because I'm maths 1 year, fmaths the next...so it's possible...and I'm coping pretty well with them all at AS...
    Eugh this is too hard
