    Hi guys, I'm in Year 11 and wanting to go into further education, I'm pretty certain I want to do P-E and Biology however I'm torn for choice on my 3rd choice. I want to do something to do with sport in Uni if that helps, I'm looking for advice on what the A-levels are like, difficulty and if you enjoy them?

    Thanks guys Jack

    I do Geography and depending on your exam board and course it might go well with Biology. I found Geography hard at first but now 6 weeks in I am finally settling in and its an awesome subject. It goes really well with my other subjects, which are all essay based, yep Geography has essays. However, at the end of the day it is your choice, it depends on your strengths and your weaknesses. You still have a lot of time and year 11 is quite early, you might now know your strengths so I would go with Geography and have another think about your subjects after you get your results

    Hey! I take PE, Psychology and business. Personally I would take psychology as a lot of is cross over with memory models and it may make it a little easier. The Sports Psychology paper is on average the worse for students so Psychology may give you that edge.

    Any more questions feel free to ask!
