    Don't think it particularly matters, I've never heard of a uni specifying they won't take Biology and only want Human Biology. Depends on personal preference for you, I've heard Human is enjoyable but seemingly more difficult than normal Biology.

    Universities don't have a preference, in fact, many schools (mine included- I did higher human) only offer one or the other. Given you want to do medicine, you will probably find higher human more interesting. The only thing I would point out is that there is only advanced higher biology (i.e. no advanced higher human biology), but everyone in my class did higher human and is coping fine with AH, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I would say just choose whichever one you think you will like better, based on the course content, as it doesn't really matter either way.

    Thank you both ! Really sorry as I just read requirements properly in which they have said that higher human is the same as higher bio .. thank you for answering though !

    I've applied to medicine this year. I did Human and am doing advanced biology this year, coping fine with the regular advanced and am very glad I did Human instead of regular, much more relevant and interesting. Hope this helps
