      Thanks Karl 🙂

      As much of science and math as you can possibly do 🙂

      particularly chemistry (aside from biology related)

      Are you from the UK? If so, do you mean A level biology and physics, if yes, then it would be a good idea to get at least an AS in chemistry. Otherwise, (for a good uni) it is important to get an A in biology. Also, 3 A levels is generally the minimum required.

      I would deffinetly advise you to take chemistry. It’s very helpfull in understanding many biological processes.

      It is also EXTREMELY fun too. Used to be my major until the mystery was gone.

      Biochemistry is better, if you have chance to take. But I think you should take chemistry. Many biological processes will be easier to understand this way.
      And yes,chemistry labs are fun. 🙂

      I’m going to NYU soon. After this summer. I found taking AP tests and SAT II tests on Biology in general really help u find out where u stand. Take a local course in zoology. Most colleges offer night courses. You should be able to get in one. Write a ton of papers on subjects that u like and post and publish them online. The more u learn the better. And I can not emphasize study ethnics enought. Party all night but work all day..

      Poison, i LOVE that poem. Invictus is like my alltime fave . Other than that….

      I’m in grade ten, but i’m taking biology 11, and i love it soo much. I find it incredibly interesting. But i was wondering, is there a lot of career opertunities for a biologist, i don’t know if any of you are from Canada, but that’s where i live and i was hoping there would be something in Canada. But if not, then anywhere really.

      Our local canadian Canalon (as Kyle(biostudent84) calls 😆 ) may be able to hep you. I’m studying bio too but can not give info about Canada… If you ‘re looking for a general info I strongly advise you to have a search in the forum. 🙂

      PS: I love Invictus too. That’s why I’m using it as my signature… 😉

      Well, depends. Go to a research college and there be choices plenty. There are a lot of jobs in Italy. Since Itlay is so liberal in stem cell. So learn a European language and u will be fine for a job. Or go into the city.

      Hi
      I’m in 4th year and i want to know what subjects i need for zoology?
      I hate chemistry so do i need that?

      Yah you need chemistry, but i was wondering why math is so important in zoology? I took an aptitude test earlier in the month of september and it veiwed mathmatics as being more important than general science courses… I thought this was sort of fishy but idk maybe you guys could help me out?

      Although i wouldn’t say it is more important than general science, math is still very important because there a lot of aplications of mathematical equations in biology

      There’s a lot of statistical analysis in Zoology.

      Apparently yes, math was very important according to the standardized ASVAB test (a test conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense) they said that it is more important that general science courses!

      Yes, math is required. Otherwise when you get to analising bacterial population you won’t know what logaritm is 🙂

      You’ll need lots of chem. Both general and organic. You won’t need biochem though unless you’re a medical major.

      You’ll need some type of college algebra and statistical analysis class if you want to be a zoology or biology major. If you are going to be taking physics in college also, then you will need calculus.
