Advanced Higher Biology
Posted 09 May 2004 - 07:33 PM
Just looking for any books that contain questions for Advanced Higher biology because I know there were some for higher biology.
Does anyone know of any titles?

I'm doing advanced higher biology this year aswell. I, know, it's weird, there seem to be hardly and people on here that actually do biology at all. (I'm doing advanced higher chemistry and music too)
Where are you in the course? We have just started structure of lipids, having just finished carbohydrates. We only get 3 taught periods a week, so we have to do quite a bit of work on our own. I think the course has been ok so far, but there is soooo much to remember!
We are going on a trip to Glasgow Science Centre next Thursday for a conference/debate thing on stem cell research. I think most schools in the area were notified about it, maybe you are going too??
I think it would be good to have some biology notes on this site, coz we are quite limited with just using scholar all the time. Not sure how much demand there would be for them though, as not many people on here seem to do biology.
Do you know of any other good websites etc for Biology notes? (other than scholar?)
Good to hear from another biologist lol they are so rare
(YAY!! my 100th post woohoo!!) lol

We have like two teachers at the moment. With one teacher we have passed Cell differentiation and Cancer cells. With the other teacher we are doing Enzymes at the moment. This year is sooo wierd coz adv highers are self research and self study which is kinda crap but I suppose it is a good preperation for university.
We did a field trip to Vane farm in Fife about two weeks ago which IMHO was useless... at least for now. However we are doing some practicals at college tommorrow. We also have to go to another school just to do this course which also kinda sucks. And no we don't have that conference thing...I like in Falkirk btw. Tell me how you got on

That is harsh who told you that? Have you contacted the Universities you thought of applying to to check with them?
I've just applied for medicine, but I did Chemistry last year
I got a band 1 A in Human Biology last year.
I didn't even know you had to do an investigation in AH Biology Do you really have to do the whole thing yourself?
Posted 03 October 2004 - 03:04 PM
The investigation as far as I heard has to be done by ourselves. You got any ideas on what you're doing? I wonder if there's any for Maths :S
Posted 04 October 2004 - 04:51 PM
Absolutely no idea whatsoever......
Our teacher hasn't mentioned anything about an investigation yet, I think I'll ask him tomorrow....
What are you doing for yours? Can you give me an idea of what it actually involves (experiments, writing up reports ect.) Thanx

I have 2 of them to do though, 1 for AH Chemistry and 1 for AH Physics.
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!

We did an experiment last week with carbohydrates, testing them with Benedicts, and Barfoed's etc. It was really similar to an experiment we did with Higher last year, don't know why we had to do it again.......
We also did one trying to get little plant cut off thingys to grow in agar jelly, didn't really work very well though.
Have you done any?

Thought this thread was closed . Anyway, we did another set of experiments on Mitosis and its different stages.Pretty easy really. We got two more to go I think..

Has anyone started on there nabs yet? My teacher says we might be getting it in a weeks time. But we've still got a lot to cover and hes giving us tons of homework . Anyone in the same situation ?
