    For those who have queries about taking a science at A-levels here's some advice from a college student who takes biology. At GCSE I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I was older, and I knew that to get that job I would need biology. Overall I got a good grade in biology at GCSE and so carried it in at college A-levels. I now do not enjoy biology as much as I did at GCSE and no longer want to og into the profession I always thought I would. So my advice would be: think about other future job options if you are unsure, just so you have a safety net if something goes wrong. Also I would advise you to take biology A-level if you are extremely enthusiastic about it, especially as at first you may not notice but the jump from GCSE to A-Level is ridiculous. And my last advice would be, if you are taking biology A-level, revise past papers and mark schemes, they will be the best way on learning exactly what examiners are looking for in answers. Hope this helped
