    I was just wondering out of:

    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics

    which TSR sees as the most important. And by importance i mean most required for university courses, most relevant to everyday life, the most useful, most respected, most widely used, which opens the most doors, stuff like that

    Does everything in TSR need a ranking? Rank THESE sandwiches in order of prestige/taste/career prospects.

    Chemistry most important in my opinion, range of courses open to you at university with it and it's very well looked upon by potential universities. They know a great deal of independent study goes into Chemistry A Level so it pays off to work at it, so my chemistry teacher says anyway lol

    Physics or biology in any order afterwards as they are quite specific to whatever you're interested in.

    Physics is clearly the most important. Without advances in physics, biology and chemitry wouldn't have the technology they needed to make progress and would still be stuck in the dark ages.

    In all fairness, I loved biology(It's my favourite science), but in order of importance, I'd say they go in this order:
    1. Physics
    2. Chemistry
    3. Biology

    Saying that, I found biology pretty easy

    I'd say your definition of importance is pretty dodgey :/
    I reckon chemistry & physics are required for more degrees than biology is and probably have more varied career prospects- that doesn't make the actual disciplines more important
    But yeah, I couldn't call it.

    Science in general is awesome :cool:

    Physics is applied maths, chemistry is applied physics, biology is applied chemistry.

    So out of the "sciences" physics is the most important, and physics and maths are in the same bed with each other(mathematicians are very good at physics and physicists are very good at maths)
