If it helps, here are the topics you'll be looking at probably

A2

module 4 - central concepts ie, respiration, photosynthesis and populations. Genetics and genetic control. classification. selection and evolution. Homeostatis.

Module 5 - Growth, development and reproduction ie. Contorl of grwoth and development in plants and animals. Reproduction in animals

Module 6 Somekind of practical examination, maybe something on biochemistry.

A2s aren't different from ASs - they are they same sort of material just a different content. I wouldn't worry about the application of knowledge side of things too much either - through doing lots of past papers you get loadssss of practice at this anyway. Also they make it pretty clear in questions about knowledge application exactly what it is they're looking for.
A major piece of advice is, if your school offer the January module thing, make sure you actually do well in them! The modules in january (unit 4 usually) are mammoth in all subjects and the last thing you want to do is resit them in June.
You said biology isn't related to the degree you want to do - this can be a good thing as showing diversity shows you are willing to do other things rather than being focused on just humanities or arts or something.
Hmm I really enjoyed biology last 2 years. Might actually miss it lol.
