1 the science of life Why study biology? 1. It is highly relevant to everyday life: from your own health, to the country s food supply and control of disease. 2. is one of the most dynamic fields of study in terms of the practical - stem cell therapy ; the conceptual - the synthetic cell (top right); and the future - memory augmentation surgery? personalised medicine? 3. The biological sciences are the most diverse of subjects from molecular biology to the biosphere. A qualification in biology equips you with skills: literacy, numeracy, socially awareness, and an ability to make connections between natural, social, economic, political and technological fields. 4. Biologists have many opportunities: the pharmaceutical industry; clinical and health professions; conservation; agriforestry.

2 British biologists are world famous

In practicals, luckily I had the experience of using most of the equipment before at school which many people had not. Graham Hill OO Microbiology (Manchester Year 2) The practicals we did at Oakham were excellent, with excellent equipment. Electrophoresis is a method I learnt at school, and my CREST project allowed me to experience techniques we are now covering in my first year course, such as basic plating techniques. Standard A2 Chemistry is more than sufficient for the biochemistry element of Microbiology.
