I'm in my senior year. I need to get flying marks this year to get into a good college. I'm facing problems with biology, not because it's hard, but because it's too boring. It's true that there are some interesting topics like genetics but more than 80% of the textbook is filled with boring mumbo jumbo.
How do I deal with this?

Thank you.

Oh.
take a pen and paper. Note down all the important points and go through them after reading the chapter. If it was something like nervous system and digestion, you could have watched animtions or videos. I am sure someone will help you.
Anyway, try searching for video lessons in ecology and physiology.

It can be tough to motivate yourself when you find a topic boring, in my experience though a lot is down to teaching. I'm sure we've all had lessons that should have been fascinating but a bad teacher ruined it, similarly boring topics can be made great by good teachers.

If you're looking for a fun introductory video series I recommend crash course: biology. First one bellow;


They also have a series on ecology:


And anatomy and physiology:

Best of luck. If there are any areas of biology you struggle with during study feel free to make threads on them. That's what the forums here for.
