    Ok so I'm trying to choose my a levels. I plan to do maths, further maths,chemistry French and either biology or physics but I can't decide between the two. I want to keep my university course options open but I enjoy biology more than physics. Any advice?

    Personally I think physics would be better as it compliments both maths and chemistry well (and it is amazing. I know I am a geek). However, if you enjoy biology more and are good at memorising lots of stuff (as you must be if you are taking french) then you will be more inclined to revise it and will therefore do better. I am also in Year 11 and I am thinking of taking maths, further maths, chemistry and physics. How are you doing in those two subjects at the minute??? Is one stronger than the other??? xx

    You have answered your own question.

    Your options would be open no matter which of the two you decide; however, you enjoy biology more, therefore you should pick biology.

    Although I don't do physics and yes plant biology is awfully dull, that's not an accurate representation of both A level specifications haha. I have friends who study physics and I study biology

    Regardless of the picture, Physics is much more engaging helps with problem solving skills especially in maths. Biology on the other hand is just memorisation.

    I'd go for biology. It's very important that you enjoy your A levels. However, only take biology if you think you would consider doing a life science degree or maybe a healthcare course
