    Hi, i am currently choosing my A levels and have decided on maths, chemistry and physics but am unsure whether to pick PE or biology as my final option (all of which i am continuing the full a level). I feel i enjoy PE more and am finding biology really dull at the moment but am worried that PE will limit my options. If you have done either courses can you tell me what they're like and if universities accepted PE.

    It really depends on what you want to study at university. PE is easier but there's almost no practical element to it at a-level as it's mostly exam based. Biology is harder but is preferred by most universities. Like I said it depends on what you want to study and where. I would suggest reading the spec for each subject and use that to help decide which you think you would prefer to learn.
