    It's more the way they teach that has annoyed me - they yell at us when we try to make notes and doesn't really explain the stuff we need to know. The only reason I have any interest in it whatsoever is because I do the research/revision outside the classroom.
    Would you have the same teachers at a level?

    No definitely not - even if they had a sixth form I wouldn't have gone. This is why I feel kinda stupid for writing off Biology so soon, considering everything from GCSE will practically change higher up.

    it does all change and I really would recommend biology. It's really useful and interesting as well as looking good to any uni. Go to open days/evenings of the college you'd be going to and get a feel for what the biology department is like there. It'll give you a much better idea of the place as a whole. In particular ask current students of the course as well (though try to catch them when the teacher isn't listening) and ask about the teaching style of the different teachers there so you know what you're letting yourself into. It is worth baring in mind where you want to go after a levels as well as whatever subjects you do or don't take you'll limit your options somewhat so it's worth thinking about what opens/closes which doors.
