I currently attend high school in Dubai, and want to learn more science than what my high school offers.
When I learned about edX from one of my teachers, I enrolled in Introduction to Biology – The Secret of Life from MITx. I chose this course because I like science, and this course had no prerequisites unlike most of the physics courses which needs calculus. I found the course easy to follow, and I learned an incredible amount of biology and also a bit of chemistry. I particularly liked the chemistry aspect of the course, and the focus on proteins and enzymes.
Taking this course put me ahead of my peers at school. I hope to study science in college, and having an edX certificate will help me get into a good program because the course I took was from a really good university (MIT). I also plan to take more edX courses in philosophy, physics, or chemistry.
