    So, I’m currently at GCSE making my A-Level choices and i’ve been considering studying biology (alongside maths, physics and english literature), but i’m not sure if i should do it. I’m not sure what career I want to go into and I feel like i’m only choosing biology to keep doors open for courses such as neuroscience or forensics (and those degrees are already restricted since i’m not doing chemistry), and i’m just unsure as to whether or not it would be worth doing biology, as i’ve heard it’s a very heavy content wise and i’m not sure if it would be a wise choice to take biology if i end up not wanting to use it for a degree. Should I do it or should i do a different subject? Anyone who has done A-Level biology’s help would be particularly appreciated, but any help at all would be great!

    You could always take biology in Year 12 and then if you decide that the workload is too much you could drop it at the end of the year
    Also you may have more of an idea of what career you want to go into this time next year!
