Hi,

I'm doing IGCSE Chemistry/Physics at home, but I did a test to see what I am, and it says I'm more of a " doing " person then thinking and remembering.

You think it would be best to do BTEC Level 2 Science while IGCSE Chemistry/Physics at home? (I'm aiming for A/A*s)

If you're aiming for A/A*s then you don't really need to do BTECs as well.
I think you should take biology as well because usually people take all three sciences and they'll wonder why you didn't do biology.

Heya, I'm going to put this in the Computing forum for you as you should get more responses there.You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you!http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=132
This isn't computing. It's chemistry and physics.

Yeah do biology igcse instead, will make science more grounded as science tends to cross subject boundaries in the real world. Eg medical physics, pharmacology, electro chemistry etc etc

Can you afford a tutor?

If you can't then you could self-study it using the textbook and any online resources, however if you're not confident with the subject then this wouldn't be as easy as it is for your other subjects.

Btec will be pain home schooled. Biology is mainly rote learning. What aspects of biology do you struggle with?

BTEC Science - College (just for the experiments)
IGCSE Chemistry/Physics - Homeschool (no experiments)

I generally don't understand biology, like in chemistry/physics I can imagine, see and do however, biology is just writing and writing which is zzzzzz

If you are able to go to the college for a BTEC, you can go to a school/college to do GCSE/IGCSE biology.

As far as I can remember, the experiments in GCSE biology, chemistry and physics weren't very exciting at all compared with A-level biology, chemistry and physics ones.

There is more writing in biology than chemistry and physics, but not much at all compared with English, which you were aiming for A/A* in the controlled assessments. There also isn't a lot to remember in biology at GCSE.

If I were you I would focus on the IGCSE as I always find science is a lot of pressure generally without adding more exams Good luck
