Hi,
Four A-levels can be quite tough so I'd definitely recommend considering whether the workload is manageable. A-level biology might be particularly challenging if you haven't studied GCSE biology, so you should check with your college/sixth form if they think you would be able to take the A-level. If they advise against it, there's definitely other ways you can engage with the content taught in the A-level biology course. For example, you could take a free online course in an area of biology you're interested in on OpenLearn from the Open University.
Hope this helps,
