    not a silly question, people must be like why on earth would u study biology at uni and consider teaching maths lol
    its because i find maths easier than biology and can explain it better to others than explaining biology as its fixed methods whereas biology is more wide, also when i imagine teaching, i see myself in a normal classroom not in a lab with experiements and if i were to become a biology teacer that would mean teaching bio chem and PHYSICS (ARGH) up to year 9 which i would be hopeless at and wouldnt enjoy
    however biology fascinates me more than maths
    The general science teaching isn't strictly true, I know some schools do that but most don't
