    I have been thinking about what to pick for A level but am struggling between 2 options - Drama and Biology. These are two very different courses and I am unsure of which to pick for many reasons such as if I will be able to keep up, which would look better for university etc. Do you have any advice?

    What are your other subjects, and what are you hoping to study at university?

    Maths, English Literature and Biology would be a stronger combination of subjects than Maths, English Literature and Drama, so I would recommend Biology

    Pick Biology it would look much better on your Uni application than Drama. If you want to keep your options open Biology would be highly recommendable.

    Drama, although it may be considered a soft subject, goes well with English Lit, so maybe go drama especially if you enjoy it more than biology

    What is your prediction for bio and do you enjoy it?
    Looking at your choice either would work but in terms of respective subjects id say bio would be more respected
    But think about what careers interest you and what you can cope
