You or your friend really need to get used to using google.


It looks like Human Biology is no longer offered since the A level reforms and moving to linear based A levels.
OCR cancelled theirs, but you can look here at the spec. If it isnt offered, then you wont be doing it.
BTEC have an applied Human Biology.
Edexcel or AQA do not offer it.

Unis would only let you count one of the A levels as there would be too much overlapping content.

There are different versions of Biology though with different emphasis. Up to your school to choose.

Human biology focuses exclusively on Humans.

Biology has a wider scope.
