    Biology or Chemistry as an A-level
    Which do you enjoy the most?
    Which one fits the degree you are interested in most?
    Which will you get the highest grade in?

    I would say chemistry gives more options, but grade matters.

    it really depends how you did in GCSE
    i would prefer Chemistry, its far more simpler than Biology.
    If you dont have any plans for Med school or medicine then you should go with Chemistry

    Also note that the level of difficulty increases drastically in A-levels so be prepared as both subjects are very deep and broad

    Answer the questions. paramedics only require one science for the course. Chemistry seems to be the top A level , but either are going to be acceptable and useful. Have a look at entrance requirements for some courses.

    Both are actually quite difficult (especially at A2).
    Biology is a lot easier if you actually enjoy the subject. You can read around it and find out stuff you are interested inn

    Chemsitry is hard due to the amount of content but it can be quite interesting. Why don’t you start with both and drop one if you don’t enjoy it
