    Which A Level is easier? I’m hopefully going to do Maths, Further Maths, Economics and either Physics or Biology. I enjoy both lots so I just wanted to know which one is the easier option at A Level based on my other options?

    What do you want to do when you are older?

    I mean, if you choose to do A level physics, then you are pretty much set to do engineering and physics at uni.

    Stick with biology for medicine
    Stick with Physics for engineering
    Flip a coin if you're going into any social sciences e.g economics/politics
    Physics is more math based so it would be easy to cross reference between the mechanics modules of maths and furthermaths, however Physics in year 13 is way harder than year 12.
    I haven't done Biology but i've seen most of my friends books and its mostly filled with diagrams and chemical formulas. Why do 4 subjects you will soon realize that its a lot of pressure on you and you will have little to no free time in year 13 , and will probably drop to 3.
    Just have an idea on which uni course you're interested in and then go on from there.
    Best of luck!!!!!

    I want to do an economics degree. I’m not voluntarily doing 4 subjects but my school force people who take Further Maths to do 4.

    What about for an economics degree?

    Physics fits better. Medical type courses need chemistry - physics leaves options open if you look away from economics. If you are good enough at maths for double maths physics should be relatively easy and not as heavy a workload as biology.
