    I am currently studying at school :banghead: and I am really not getting on very well so I have decided to transfer to college for my second year :woo:!!! I am going to carry on with my A2s in Business and English Literature whilst starting ASs in Biology and Geography. What are the AS courses like in those subjects?

    Thanks for all your help, Mia x

    I did AS Biology last year and it was about 50:50. 50% ******** and 50% stuff i enjoyed. But then again i hate human biology and ecology which were large parts of my course. Biology at AS, to be honest, isn't really any harder than GCSE. Theres just more of it. You'll probably enjoy it. Most people seem to.

    AS Geography is dire. Please steer clear. The course I do (AQA) is horrendous, and from what my friends at another college say, Edexcel is also excruciating. No idea about the other boards.

    SO many people dropped it after the AS, hahaha, good lord.

    I know nothing about Biology I'm afraid.
