A-Levels to MCAT - Biology Guide (part 2)

  • A-Levels to MCAT - Biology Guide (part 2)


Here is the second part of the Biology guide. Part II Biology isn't very long and it is pretty easy. You should be done with it quickly. A few chapters are just entirely new.


Expected duration: 10 days


6. HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY


(c) Excretion And Osmoregulation

Chapter # 5
Questions: 05

The chapter of osmoregulation we studied in A-levels was A LOT more detailed, so it would do you good to revise it.

• The first point is covered on page 10 - 14
• The second point is covered on pages 15-16
• The third point is covered on pages 1-2, 6-8. Yes, the urea cycle is important too.

(d) Nervous System
Chapter # 15
Questions: 04

• The first point is covered on page 67
• The second point is covered on pages 68-69.
• The third point is covered on pages 70-71
• The fourth point is covered on pages 60-61
• The fifth point is covered on page 71
• The sixth point is covered on page 55

(e) Reproduction
Chapter # 18
Questions: 05

This chapter is a lot smaller than the detailed one we studied in our A-levels.

(f) Support and Movement
Chapter # 16
Questions: 05

This is a relatively new chapter and it might take you a little time to get the concepts. For better understanding of the sarcomere, you can always refer to the diagrams in A-levels book. And you can watch animations online for the Sliding filament theory.

All the points are covered from pages 31-35, and then pages 38-43

(g) Hormonal Control
Chapter # 17
Questions: 04

For this chapter, learn all the text from page 72-78



8. BIOTECHNOLOGY
Chapter # 23
Questions: 05

This chapter is nothing compared to the one we studied in A-levels. You should find it very easy. Learn everything from pages 202-207 and then from pages 212-216


9. ECOSYSTEM
Chapter # 25, # 27
Questions: 05

This is a pretty general knowledge, fun topic. The whole of Chapter 25 is included except the Nitrogen cycle. From chapter 27, pages 269-276 is included.



10. EVOLUTION & GENETICS
Chapter # 22 & # 24
Questions: 05

I did not like this chapter very much.

• Point (a) is covered on page 225 - 226
• Point (b) is covered on page 227-228
• Point (c) is covered on page 186, 192-196
• Point (d) is covered on pages 173-177



This ends the Biology guide for the A-Levels to MCAT transition.
