    Maths is easier in my view. I haven't studied Bio but I know enough people who have, and also studied Chem and Physics myself.

    Sciences are tough and I think require much more out of you than maths on its own. Maths, you can practice and practice until it clicks and you can 'easily' work at an A/A* level, whereas with the sciences I think it's a bit more difficult and you have it or you don't when it comes to being challenged in the exam with unseen questions.

    And I think, if neither matter for now, an A-level in Maths is probably more useful than Bio for most people.
