    Hey guys!

    Anyone done Env Sci at either GCSE or A Level? I'm thinking of doing them both (if I can find somewhere locally that *does* A2....), and I wondered how anyone with them already under their belts or part-way through enjoyed the subject. I'd be esp curious about the coursework aspect of GSCE. I have an idea already (not even enrolled yet!!!!) but I wonder how viable it is.

    I done a module called environmental biology in A-level, it was utter crap...I advise you to stay well away from the whole environmental thing it just isn't interesting...

    That really depends on what you find interesting. I would personally say that the whole physics a-level(except the optional astro-physics module we took) was very un-interesting but many people would disagree with me. I also found the whole biology a-level very interesting.

    funny you should say that, but there were onehundred people taking environmental biology and all but one found it un-interesting - the statistics back me up...

    Hmm, I agree that it's a matter of opinion, thanks for your input all the same. I was asking about env sci as a specific subject which is quite different anyway.

    I would agree that it is the most un-interesting of all the modules, but I took Human Biology and never wanted to study this compulsary module in the first place.

    But the thing is, she obviously has a direct interest in this area and wants to study it an an individual subject, whereas you took a general biology course and did not enjoy the module. There is quite a big difference.

    Not really. You see, Env Sci as a distinct subject is more like a sciencified version of geography. It covers a lot of stuff like earth sciences, atmosphere, the various cycles, human impacts and so on as well as ecology and the bio-bits. Sounds a lot more varied than one module in biology. Anyway, we shall see!!
