Is Biology A level hard?Watch
I dont hate it, it was just never one i took that seriously i guess
I don't think Biology on its own will give you that many options, though. If you do it in conjunction with Chemistry, then yes. If you don't really enjoy it, it can be easy to lose motivation so watch out!
^ Just out of interest - why did you take both Biology and Human Biology? The subjects overlap heavily and I suspect they weren't treated as distinct A levels by medical schools.
Its about half-overlap - quite a bit easier than just Biology really. I done it because I'm a bit of a geek and quite liked Biology, haha. I didnt do it until second year, and then I just read up bits alone and sat all the modules in June with my other A2's.
The material is pretty straightforward though.
If u struggle in AS, you can always drop it. but i say give it a go, i found it a lot of fun- and u learn soo much from it.
Apart from that, I LOVED biology. Loads better, easier and more interesting than chemistry, even though biology was my worst mark in the end (damn you practicals!). Do it!
What exam board do u want to use? Edexcel repeat questions every year, and it is possible get an A by memorizing about 10 years worth of past paper answers to questions, as proven by yours truly with 270/300 for AS.
Good luck with A2. Its like the same old crap but twice as much.
the concepts aren't really very difficult
if your good at memorising a whole load of information you'll be ok
