Hello, can I take both A level Biology and A level Human Biology? Also, would it be possible to take A level Human Biology instead of Biology and apply to med school?

On the side note, can anyone explain to me what the coursework is about? I intend to take AQA Biology, I know there are practicals in both units 3&6 but what is coursework exactly and is there one in every unit? How does it work in general?

doing both is pointless, you are unlikely to find a university that would accept both as part of your offer and certainly not for medicine.

you could take either for a medicine application, regular biology is more common.

the structure you describe for AQA biology only applies to the old specification and therefore only if you are completing the full a level in summer 2016. the details for unit 3 and 6 depend on which assessment route your exam centre opts for and are descibed in the specification

you need to consult the new specification if your final exams will be 2017, the assessment of practical skills is very different.
