The thing is that I'm only familiar with Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Levels.
From this year onwards our syllabus is very much focussed on Life Sciences.

We are learning mostly about molecular genetics and certain aspects of ecology.

Is your syllabus like this?
Botany is the study of what? Bottoms!

I've taught OCR (formerly Cambridge) A level for several years - I would guess that most of my students since the Curriculum 200 changes have struggled most with the early biochemistry work (because they've done none at GCSE) and later with the genetics.
