Hi can't decide which a levels to do. I want to do maths and geography but can't decide between physics and biology.
At the moment my grades are pretty similar ( average 89% in bio 87% in physics)
I like both so really stuck on what to do

If you don't want to study medicine,Biochemistry, biomedical science or biology at university, physics is the better choice.

I'm not sure about Physics, but regarding biology it's a lot of work and a lot of content to learn.If you're naturally better at things like maths and working things out maybe physics, but if you'd rather go with a subject where a good memory is needed, perhaps biology.

I do maths and I must say as much as I hate physics, it has helped me with my maths. I was able to learn equations very well since I use the same equations in both physics and maths. Physics has also helped to me with forces and motion in maths. However, I find biology easier than physics because it’s one of those subjects that if you learn the content you would normally get result you want. Physics is a big jump from gcse, its more bout application and just learning the content would not get the best grade.
It all depends on ur interest.
Hope this helps

Thank you, is the exam question style in biology similar to GCSE

In mechanics we do. But I wouldn’t say that it’s a lot.

I would say so, just a lot harder as there's so much to remember though.

Physics, if you’re not planning on studying Biology related courses at university.

Physics is harder I'd say, especially compared to GCSE, there's alot more theory side but also a much more extensive maths side, with some very complex questions
