    I hoping to study A-level Biology in sixth form, however the course requires two B's and I got a grade C for core science last year. Additional science is yet to be taken and I'm hoping to atleast get a grade A or higher so it theoretically balances out. Does anyone studying A-level Biology was in the same situation as me and how did you get in to the course if you had a grade C in of the sciences?

    Well no, but i'm just gonna say that Biology is really hard at A Level in that there is soo much content to learn.

    I have a mock coming up (actually it's tomorrow) and it has taken me hours and hours and hours to revise most of the content we've learned, since September. So we've only had roughly 4 months of lessons, and I still have a year and a half to go.

    People who had gotten As in GCSE are getting Bs, so you're really gonna have to work so much harder at A Level.

    Sorry for the rant. I am stressed and actually procrastinating revision. ((((

    But good luck anyway.

    I am a prospective 2016 sixth form college student and most colleges nearly all require a B in core and additional or separate sciences. I have an offer to study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at A level with a B in all 4. I do separate sciences so i get 3 science gcse's while the core and additional only gets 2. I am predicted AAA in the sciences. I really think for A level you should be looking at a B or higher in science as well as maths to get into most place.

    I can't comment on the grades situation, however, A level biology is just a lot to learn! None of it is really really difficult, and if you persevere and you're passionate about it, you'll be fine

    I am currently doing A2 biology and I find it really difficult.... it is really hard work! There is a lot to learn, but you will find it easier if it interests you. My gcse teacher told me to revise from past papers and it worked really well! (pulled me up from a C to an A*). I'm sure if you like it and are willing to put the work in though that the benefits will pay off!
