So, do you enjoy Biology A Level? What sort of things do you learn about? Is it difficult? What kind of careers does it relate to? I'm taking Biology A level next year, so I'm wondering what other people think about it!
Well I hate it. Its just learning strings of information from the textbook. I'm on OCR and some of the human biology is alright, but a lot of the content is dull and uninteresting, in my opinion.
I love biology. Very interesting. Some concepts are pretty detailed and hard to get your head around though.
Human biology is awesome, ecology is dire, but unfortunately you have to do it. :P
HAHAHAAHAHAHAHA enjoy, hahahahaahaa. No i seriously hate it with a passion.
It's ok, way too much information to remember though
I really enjoy Edexcel biology and have found every topic interesting (even ecology). I personally find it the most interesting of all of my subjects. Beware, the coursework is a bit of a nightmare, especially if you have a teacher that isn't up to scratch.
It's okay but so many convoluted processes you literally just have to memorise lul
A lot of the time you find yourself asking, but why does this happen- and you kind of just have to accept the information..
However I doubt I'm best suited to biology so, haha
I enjoy it... but it can get tedious sometimes with lots of learning and less application in some topics. Also in some topics. it's too broad and you can never be sure what they are asking you. like ecosystem.
I do like it, but unfortunately a lot of it is just rope learning information from the textbook, which means that the lessons are rarely enjoyable. Also, I don't know if this is just my school, but there are quite a lot of people who take biology who don't seem to enjoy it. This makes me hate the lessons because I'm pretty much the only one who is bothered about learning it. I don't know how applicable this is to you.
Some of the concepts are hard to get your head around - I often find that I won't fully understand it in the lesson, and will need to look at the textbook/class powerpoint again in my own time, but it's definitely not impossible.
I do Biology AS with OCR and I'm not really enjoying it this year. There are people who really enjoy it that I know, but personally I don't like it as much as I thought I would. Despite doing Biology and Chemistry though, I've come to realise that science isn't really my thing, and that I prefer doing my other, non-scientific subjects (languages).
Plenty of people I know who love science, love the course too though, so it might just be that the same level of interest isn't there for me.
It's simply the best subject, but requires a lot of hard work and determination!
I'm on OCR.
Lol no. I love learning the human biology things, but the ecology and plant stuff is painful. That's just my preference though, and being on OCR doesn't help either..
YES! I just find the processes that drive all organisms so fascinating and I love learning about them. I have even enjoyed photosynthesis this year, which I wasn't expecting. Which exam board are you on? Some people here have said they have coursework, but I don't (I do AQA). I'm going to be studying marine biology at uni after my A-Levels.
