I'm studying an A level in biology but not chemistry as I found chemistry too difficult so dropped it halfway through year 12. I need a 1st or 2:1 to get into graduate entry medicine so which would I find easier to study. I'm also doing A levels in psychology and english language.

What you find easier to study is different may be different to other people... besides many biomedical sciences and neuroscience courses require double science as a prerequisite (Psychology doesn't count) so I would check that before making a course choice.

I've already checked, there are many unis that accept psychology as a science A level

Ok fair enough. Both courses are fundamentally different and focus on different things. A lot of the times, a course's difficulty may be determined by your interest in said course. I would suggest looking at the course descriptions and see which course you are more interested in from the universities you want to apply to before deciding.

Which you will find easier? They are both subjects which require much more than just biology and to do well in them you're going to have to work hard. You're also probably going to have to take some sort of chemistry based module.

To be honest I'd rather study neuroscience but I feel that if I had a degree in biomedical science I'd find graduate entry medicine easier.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

Then study neuroscience, it's a relevant degree and if you do well you can do graduate entry medicine

If you'd rather study neuroscience, study neuroscience. Some GEM offering universities are starting to lean towards applicants having to have studied a biosciences type degree. Fairly certain neuroscience counts as that I believe. Well it's at least a life science.
