    It depends on what your interests are. Do you have any ideas about what you would like to do at uni or as a career?

    Unless you got a high A* in your Maths GCSE, i wouldn't recommend it as it is really hard - i got an A and ended up getting U's in some tests etc. (i swapped to a different course at the start of the year).
    I enjoyed Biology - it is academically challenging but really interesting and there is a breadth of different topics covered.

    I currently do both biology and maths at A2 and personally I find them both very enjoyable - I got As in both at AS. Just so you know got A*s in both at GCSE and whilst everyone experiences a bit of a jump in the transition between GCSE to A level (some more than others) I wouldn't be too scared of it since a lot of people will be on the same boat as you.

    Do you have any specific career areas that you definitely want to pursue because at the end of the day your A levels will need to match the entry requirements of unis. Also consider which one you enjoy the most. Biology is very content heavy but I like that it goes into more depth in all the topics but with revision + constant recall throughout the year you'll most likely be fine.

    It all depends up to you really. Which are the ones are you good at? And also the ones that will help you for your future.
    Maths: The main difficulty lies in the concepts, but once you understand them, there's not much in terms of workload. The concepts get a lot harder at A2.

    Biology: Pretty much the opposite to maths- the hard part is learning all the content; although it's easy to understand, there's tons of it. At A2, there's even more content, and you'll need to spend some time perfecting exam technique as well (something you don't really have to do with maths).

    I'd say maths is more enjoyable,
    Maths you need to sit and practise, biology is a lot of memorising - I do both at AS level

    :goodluck: Good luck anyways
