Hi
Uh it might just be me but the maths in Biology is pretty hard. Not that the skills needed is difficult but understanding what the question is asking of you. Plus the fact that there is more of them now than before.
I don't think it's impossible with your grades but you might want to do a lot of extra reading. Personally i got an 8 in GCSE Maths and i do both A Level Maths and Further Maths and i still lose most of my marks in Biology on the maths questions.
It might just be me though.

Most of the maths in biology is of gcse level. You have to practice with a lot of math questions to understand what the question is telling you to do.

i think in as level biology (im in year 12) the maths itself isn't hard, it's the wording of the questions. You also have to be decent a rearranging formulas.

There is some stats in it. However the maths percentage is so low that you can get good grades without answering the maths questions
