    I like unit 5 too so far. Doesn't seem too complicated. I did not enjoy unit 4! its scary to think that the next exam will be on everything that we covered in a-level biology..

    What do you need help with?

    I was supposed to do an essay (1000 words) on the ethics of using animals for recombinant DNA technology, and ended up writing 1100 words on Diabetes and insulin

    Everything, we've just started BIOL5 and I can't get my head round any of it. And I don't really revise it at home as I want to do a french and history degree, so I concentrate on those subjects and leave bio out, but I need a B.
