    Biology, sociology and media.

    Biology, sociology and media.
    I can only speak for biology and media but this is from my friends experiences not mine. It could be different for your school but for media, my friends say that it's their easier course (although they are taking heavy essay based subjects) as media is more of an enjoyable subject, for example instead of speaking about British politics they talk about Beyonce's newest music video. On the other hand, biology is a harder subject compared to most as at least 12 people dropped it after a few months in the one AS class as it was such a huge step up from GCSE but my friends who really enjoy biology say that, yes it is hard work (expected for any A Level), but if you have a real interest for the subject you should be fine.
    Hope that helps.

    biology is very wordy and there's a lot of keywords and info to take in, and ngl if the teacher sucks, then you will have a hard time. Media is very coursework heavy, so if you find coursework boring then stay away. But media is a chill subject. And sociology is a lot of essays and case studies to learn. So there's a lot of info to remember. If you like essay writing then media and sociology would be chill, and bio would be a nice hard subject to flaunt.
