Hey I just did the Human Bio course. I don't think it's a waste of time it's basically like a bridge between a levels and uni. You're essentially resisting at uni lol

I need to get 75% overall and since only 8 people applied to move onto Optometry they let me in with 72%.

With the course you get tutorials, workshops and lectures. Biology is compulsory and then you choose out of CHEM/ physics in first semester and then you can also choose maths in second if you've done well in one of the "scientific skill" module which is basically gcse maths 😂

Hope I've helped x

Yeah coursework, lab work and exams

Bio you have mid term and end of semester (half multiple q, half short answer)
CHEM i only did in first semester (lab work, lab report, exam)
Maths with stats: 2 in class tests and 2 stars online tests
Then u have to coursework modules :
First semester includes gcse maths online test (multiple q) and an essay and referencing coursework
Second you have an essay and referenceing again but also a group presentation. I'm not sure about second CHEM or physics modules as I did maths lol. Hope this helps x

They usually just use the ppts. Bio lectures have more info. I think for CHEM they give an ebook. Just check the library for books there's no specific one lol
