Love biology theory but hate the practicals? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Biology is my favourite subject at a level and I am considering studying it at university. The theory side I love because I am that type of student however I am not a fan of the practicals as I just worry about them going wrong. Are there uni courses which do pure theory or do I just have to get over my wobble about experiments?

    If you want to do biology you have to do practical work but bear in mind that pracs are very different at uni. They're meant to prep you for a career in research which is all about trial and error and discovering new things so being worried about getting things wrong isn't really something to be worried about!
