I took the one year of gen bio w/ labs, but it was a hard time and I got B's in all. After I got A's in Genetics, Cell Bio, Animal Physiology, Evolution, Parasitology, Micro Bio, and others.

Should I list the General Bio on the Course part of the secondaries? The usually only give you space for three or four. I don't know if they compare. I would rather them see the higher grades in the upper level classes.

Any recommendations?

I was wondering the same thing. So far only one school specifically asked to list the more advanced courses. Since most indicate that these are the minimum requirements, I've always listed the more advanced courses with the understanding that I've completed the pre-reqs to take these courses.

No... Don't play around with requirements. They want your intro bio grades so you can give them that.

I think they are looking to easily see if you did all the official basic requirements. So I think you should put the general courses in.
