I read a comment by a tutor on the scholar site that said she had a pupil last year that investigated the link between memory and age, that seems quite interesting so I'm thinking about finding out more about that, although I would need a lot of volunteers of different ages.
The only animal behaviour one I remember seeing was one about locusts...something to do with what foods they prefer. I didnt really look at it much because I didnt like the idea of having to look after the locusts and cleaning out their cage for the length of the investigation (bugs are icky!)
Hope this is of some help!

I am going to be doing my investigation soon and away to start planing it!
Hope the website helps.

The nab was pretty easy yeah..much much easier than I thought it would have been. I couldnt understand chromosome walking, in fact most of the human genome project was a big confusion.Fortunately none of the stuff I had trouble with came up.

Yeah I prefer the scholar stuff...plus our teacher gives us notes on everything which we just copy down, haha basically we're getting spoon-fed the information.
I'm not any further with my investigation, still deciding what I want to do! Im not to start it until after Christmas so I have a while yet. Im thinking about doing the memory-age link thing because if I have to do anything involving experiments or lab equipment at all I always screw it up, I'm a hazard around chemicals and bunsen burners. How about you, hows yours (or anybody elses) going?

I've decided to do adv higher biology next year but I'm a bit worried about it. I only got a B in my prelim although I'm apparantly capable of an A. Haven't done any chemistry since 2nd year either, do you think I'll struggle? There are 24 people doing adv higher biology at my school! Was shocked to hear it, they're putting 2 classes on, with 3 teachers each. How's the work load? I'm doing 2 other adv highers (french and german) and higher sociology. Oh well should be good anyway.

They've made the exam easier this year aswell, which is good.
There's some chemistry involved in unit one but it only involves bonds etc. And you always have the chemistry notes here on HSN for some background reading.

Got ma paper back home so am just gonna av a wee look at what i have done wrong... HA maybe not a good idea like,.

It's a bit late now, but it's not true that you can't do medicine if you havn't done chemistry yet.
Someone I know is doing medicine at Kings College London if he gets a B in higher chemistry this year, and he is crashing chemistry this year.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!
