    I am self teaching all my A levels, it's just speculation but I think having a tutor really pays off with Chemistry and maybe Math too, where as with Biology I genuinely think I am better off self teaching it.
    did you self teach AS as well? how did that go for you?

    and how do u go about doing coursework?

    Yup, got 83/80 UMS in Biology unit 1 and 2, I haven't done the coursework/practicals yet I am going to register with a Distance learning provider and get that done.


    I should add I was really poorly prepared for the AS exams I didn't really have a clue what I was doing or what the specification was I just read the Edexcel endorsed book cover to cover checked a few past papers and sat the exam.

    Caj :P lol why the neg rate? New question: Explain how new alleles might appear in the gene pool of a species. (2)
    this can be a result of mutation. mutation is the modification of a part of dna which can result in new proteins forming
