Human Biology and Biology - is one simply better?
Posted 02 June 2007 - 01:13 PM
Trying to decide whether to do human bio or just regular biology next year, and I'm hoping you can all shed some light on my choice. From what I already understand, the two are only really similar in unit 1 where they both cover cellular biology. But does either one cover any cellular biology in any depth after that (that's my interest in biology really)?
I'm really unsure of which to pick, ecology doesn't strike me as particularly interesting - but neither does reproduction, heart function etc.
I'm not going on to do any specifically biology course at uni. I am vaguely considering a biochem course or something that would combine chemistry and biology though.

You don't really go into great detail for cell biology for either until AH.
TBH I don't think it really matters which you choose.
• Cell Structure in Relation to Function
• Energy Release
• Synthesis and Release of Proteins
• Cellular Response in Defence in Animals and Plants
D030 12 Genetics and Adaptation (H)
• Selection and Speciation
• Animal and Plant Adaptations
D031 12 Control and Regulation (H)
• Control of Growth and Development
• Physiological Homeostasis
• Population Dynamics
• The Role of Enzymes in Cell Metabolism
• Protein Synthesis
• Energy Transfer
• Cell Transport
• Cellular Response in Defence
D044 12 The Continuation of Life (H)
• Transport Mechanisms
• Delivery of Materials to Cells
• Removal of Materials from the Blood
• Regulating Mechanisms
D045 12 Behaviour, Populations and the Environment (H)
• Nervous System and Memory
• Population Growth and the Environment
Everyone who done normal biology says it's better, everyone who done human says human is better.
