    When im in Chemistry id prefer to be in Biology and when im in Biology id prefer to be in Chemistry. Maths is alright though. Maybe i should be doing Physics! Id go for Chemistry overall though.

    The one your most able in currently and most interested in.

    Talking to friends (I do Physics, Maths and Further Maths - Chem as AS) we came to the conclusion that biology has LOTS and I mean freaking truck loads of stuff to learn and lots of interpretation. If your comfortable around GCSE maths (rearranging formulas, trig and algebra) then physics should be a breeze. When I look at the curriculum there just isn't much their in physics, though I appreciate that may be because I'm fortunate to be good at it, though sadly not much else.

    On a similar note, all of the people that took biology because they thought it would be good to study a science and biology is the furthest thing from theoretical geekdom hated the subject and dropped it at the first opportunity. Unless you like the subject don't take it.

    Oh and seeing someone's post above me, if your comfortable with maths and don't want to do a degree that leads on from the science but would rather just have a science then do maths. It shows "raw" problem solving and many universities give the consensus "if you can do maths you can do physics" at A-Level (unless of course you want to study physics, computer science of engineering).

    On a side not, all of the people that took biology because they thought it would be good to study a science and biology is the furthest thing from theoretical geekdom hated the subject and dropped it at the first opportunity. Unless you like the subject don't take it.

    Biology.

    Chemistry is ridiculous - if you don't like it at GCSE, you'll never ever like it. So many random formulas to remember. It's horrible.

    Never ever ever ever ever ever to chemistry

    I don't know about the easiest but Chemistry was the best for me. I hated Physics and found Biology (especially the plants side) boring. This was years back though.
