Advanced Higher Biology 2019-20Watch
Hope this helps!
Hey, I'm studying Advanced Higher Biology this year and during the holidays we have to come up with our project ideas. I'm looking to do something with enzymes but I'm not exactly sure what, any ideas?
I'm hoping to base my project on parasites, but I'd suggest reading the course spec and making your project relevant to the advanced higher course. Maybe something to do with the difference between competitive and non-competitive inhibition, or even digestion of proteins and what part enzymes play? Here's the link for the course specification if you'd like to read it: https://www.sqa.org.uk/files_ccc/AHC...pecBiology.pdf
Hope this helps!
I'm from London but graduated from St Andrews uni with a degree in Biology.... can someone please explain to me why the hell anyone would do Advanced Highers and stay at school for another year instead of going straight to uni after Highers?! it was something i never understood
The only reason I’m doing AH biology is because it’s a requirement to get into university. Also, people may want to try different advanced highers before committing to one to study at university.
hmmm.... according to St A's website you only need Highers?! Are you applying to Oxbridge then?
Oh no I’m applying for veterinary medicine! Most biology courses won’t require advanced highers, sorry for the confusion. Some courses will also recommend you take advanced highers but don’t require it.
ahhh that definitely makes sense as most people do 3 subjects in their first year of uni but medicine degrees are straight medicine from the start and are very competitive
The textbook we’ve been given in school is the Bright Red book and it’s been updated with all the 2019 content. I quite like it but it does go into a lot of detail though sometimes this helps improve your understanding. Hope this helps!
i just picked up advanced biology after dropping advanced history (i was doing history at a different school because mine doesn’t run it and was not enjoying it) so got a whole month to catch up on lmao, any heads up on what to expect?
