I am really struggling with a levels. It isn't that I'm not putting enough work in etc I just happen to have a bad memory so even tho I do 3 a levels I find it hard to remember all the stuff. I currently do psychogy, biology and English language. Instead of biology can anyone suggest any easier a levels (or require least memorising). Thanks very much
Which are the easier A levels? Watch

No a levels are easy per se. You need to work hard for all of them and everyone is different. If you don't like bio then do something you enjoy. For example I didn't like bio so dropped it and now am doing chemistry maths and physics, all of which are easier for me because I love maths and solving the 'problems' in hemistry and physics.
Take a look at all the options your sixth form / college has and see which one appeals the most

Everyone will give you a subjective answer for that. What's important is that you find a subject that you are interested in doing. Then you may find it 'easier'.

Business studies with EDXCEL is by far the easiest A level that I have done. My attendance for this lesson was about 80%, I rarely went over it in my own time and I still got an A after doing about 5 hours of reversion for all 4 exams. You can perform really well in this as long as you figure out how to answer the questions rather than knowing about it. (If that makes sense.)

A bit of both. Pick subjects you are good at, but you will also enjoy and will get you where you want to be in life. I want to do a History degree, and my A2 subjects are History, English lit and English language. These are strong subjects for my degree course (English language less so, but it's a good A-Level nevertheless).
If you struggle in math, don't do math and physics because you think it will look "good". My friends made that mistake, and I did as well. I took AS Biology for my fourth subject and dropped it before I even took the exam because I couldn't get above an E. Put that against my performances in my other subjects (strong A grades all year) it's obvious that sciences just aren't for me. And that's OK! Some people take the sciences and excel, and some don't.
I'd say citizenship is the easiest A-Level though. One of my friends failed history and so is fast tracking citizenshipLast edited by SteamboatMickey; 15-09-2016 at 08:32.

Everyone will give you a subjective answer and what's more important is what type of subjects you find easier.
If you find biology difficult have you considered that it may be the way that you're taking your notes or revising that's affecting your performance? - By the way I'm taking Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A2 this year.
Sometimes you need to change the way you're studying since your GCSE methods may not always work for A level simply because of the sheer amount of content you have to digest + learn. I also agree with SteamboatMickey above, it may just be because that particularly subject isn't for you.

Media studies, drama, business studies
If you're naturally good at maths then as a subject you would find that easy. If not it will feel impossible.
If you feel your memory is an issue psychology has FAR more to memorise than biology.
