I love biology and chemistry.

I did triple science at gcse and did biology and chemistry at a-level.

I found biology easiest, but I hated the edexcel questions, it was a task in itself to work out what they were asking you and the markscheme answers never really answered the question IMO.

I was quite good at maths although found it boring and tedious, so found physics the same (except for astronomy topics), probably because of all the maths.

Chemistry, making things fizz, bang, change colours or making smells has got to make it the funnest.

I might also add that even though I didn't do it at a-level, I think that physics is the most important - it tells us how atoms etc are going to act in chemistry, then chemistry tells us how biology works. So physics is the most fundermental - but I couldn't be doing with the maths.

Chemistry/Physics

Interesting and exciting applicable and also theoretical and conceptual...

GCSE

Physics ( I'm maths based as a person )

Biology (memorising facts and regurgitating is biology, and that makes it boring and thus hard)

Chem/Phy

Biology

Chemistry. I did triple science at GCSE, and would have taken to biology to A level, but my old school really screwed things up at the beginning of Lower Sixth and I'm now without a biology A level. I plan on taking chemistry or chemical engineering at university, with the former being more probable, depending upon my A level results.

I voted for biology, but I like chemistry too I did triple science at GCSE, then took bio and chem at A level. Biology is definately the easiest, and despite the fact that I love maths, I didn't enjoy physics too much. The funnest was probably biology- having 2 mental teachers probably helped. GCSE physics was quite boring, but A level chemistry after school, never doing any practicals was incredibly tedious and boring

THE BIG BANG THEORY !!! :heart:

Q1) Physics.
Q2) I too am a maths-based logical thinking type of person.
Q3) I took it for GCSE's & currently revising AS Level Physics independently :rolleyes:
Q4) Biology is the easiest by far, all there is to do is just memorise & regurgitate.
Q5) Physics by far.
Q6) Chemistry as it's more hands on practical-based/experiments.
Q7) Personally, I find biology boring. Not my science field.

I'm a full-on science geek, pretty much in love with all three. Took triple science at GCSE and at A-level (which, actually, was a MASSIVE pain because they're all pretty heavy).

Voted for Biology, because it's my personal favourite of the three- I'm currently studying Biology with Anthropology at Oxford Brookes Uni. I also found it the easiest, but probably because I genuinely love the topic and will read around it as a method of alleviating boredom.

I found Physics the most difficult- not a massive fan of heavy maths. It's not a matter of not getting it, it's just that repetitive number-crunching can be tedious; I know that does apply to all three subjects, but especially so in Physics. For that reason, physics is also the one I found to be the most boring.

That said, I'm always amazed at what's going on in the physical world, especially very recently. Big things like Felix Baumgartner, like the probable discovery of the Higgs Boson, like the Curiosity Rover... They've just announced the discovery of a "Super-Earth" about 42 light-years away ( http://www.space.com/18393-alien-pla...hd-40307g.html ). This stuff makes me take a step back and just think about everything. For me, these things make 2012 every bit as special as the Olympics and Jubilee do.

Chemistry's pretty good too, but I don't have any particulay affinity towards it; it's slightly too mathsy and not quite spectacular enough to redeem itself. Still, you do get to blow stuff up every now and then. I genuinely (accidentally) ignited a 2-gallon bottle of ethanol last year. Scary (but fun) times!

Whilst answering the poll above, please consider answering the questions below too:

What science did you vote for? I dont vote. But if I did then biology

Why is it your favourite? Because gynecology is a specialised part of it

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc? No GSCEs. Im too stupid

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science? Biology, but thats still hard.

Which is the hardest out of the 3? Chemistry coz of C02s and CBR6s and H2Os etc. Cant get my head round.

Which is the funnest? Recreational gynecology

Which is the most boring? Physics. Its all about X amount of force = that amount of effect. Crap!
etc

Another question is which one relies more on maths, physics or chemistry? The obvious answer would be physics but I'm aware chemistry uses a lot of maths too.

What science did you vote for?
Biology.

Why is it your favourite?
Because I liked learning about living things, rather than chemicals and things.

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc?
I took all three sciences at GCSE because I had to, although I took none of the sciences at A Level. I'm doing political science at university, but it's a bit different from the three main sciences.

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science?
I always found Biology the easiest, although that was probably because I enjoyed it.

Which is the hardest out of the 3?
For me personally, it was Chemistry.

Which is the funnest?
Either Physics or Chemistry, because of the experiments.

Which is the most boring?
I don't honestly know, I guess for me it was Chemistry.

What science did you vote for?
Biology

Why is it your favourite?
Because my interests lie in genetics and molecular biology.

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc?
I did double science GCSE many years ago, before triple was commonplace.
I have A levels in chemistry and biology.
I have a genetics and molecular biology degree.
Currently teaching science with a specialism in biology at secondary level.

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science?
I always found biology the easiest of the three. I think it has fewer abstract concepts (up until degree level) which are generally easier to learn.

Which is the hardest out of the 3?
I always found chemistry the hardest at GCSE.

Which is the funnest?
I found all of them fun, it was more dependent on the individual topic.

Which is the most boring?
Again it depends on the individual topic. Global warming is dull!

What science did you vote for? biology

Why is it your favourite? purely because physics gets on my nerves and so does maths and chemistry sometimes, because I am not the type of person who likes remembering equations etc. I am a person who is more about writing essays, I guess.

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc? did GCSE science and am currently doing GCSE additional science

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science? i guess it's biology (though my exam results would suggest that I find physics the easiest, haha)

Which is the hardest out of the 3? can't decide

Which is the funnest? biology practicals are tedious, but content isn't; chemistry practicals are good but the course itself bores me; physics practicals usually don't work well and the content is boooring. So I don't know.

Which is the most boring? physics

What science did you vote for? Biology

Why is it your favourite? Human biology especially fascinates me because you develop such a better understanding of yourself as a human and how many processes go on without you realising.

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc? Did Science Double Award at GCSE and am currently doing Science & Biology at Access to HE (so Level 3) and I'm doing an extra Chemsitry AS on top.

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science? Hmm.. biology probably but there are aspects of it that are also pretty complex

Which is the hardest out of the 3? None of them per se. Just depends on your maths skills with physics and chemistry.

Which is the funnest? Probably Chemistry... I like blowing up things

Which is the most boring? I always found the botany part of biology the most dull!

What science did you vote for? Biology.

Why is it your favourite? I just find it more interesting as it's mostly things I could actually see happening, or at least picture it better.. whereas I find imagining all the little atoms and electrons in Chemistry harder so I find it less interesting.

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc? Triple science at gcse. Chemistry and Biology at AS, currently doing both at A2. Applying for a Biology degree.

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science? At GCSE I found Physics easiest, but at a-level it's been Biology.

Which is the hardest out of the 3? Chemistry.

Which is the funnest? Biology.

Which is the most boring? Physics.

Physics

Do/did you take it for GCSE/A-Level/Degree etc?
All 3 sciences to A level (I love how some topics connect between the 3 and each explains something in the other or is explained by the other )

Which out of the 3 is the easiest science?
Physics (personally, it had the least content by far, but it mostly required understanding, which I loved, biology was understandable but content exponentially increases with every unit :s, Chemistry had moderate content and also required understanding).

Which is the hardest out of the 3?
Chemistry. Biology if you don't learn the stuff.

Which is the funnest?
Chemistry (and Physics in terms of getting to understand what is going on).

Which is the most boring?
Biology, again, a personal opinion, there were some fun topics but overall, some were boring and mostly general, while I found Physics and Chemistry to be more exciting.
