    Biology is horrible it's extremely content heavy. The mark schemes are so specific as well even if you get the question right but didn't phrase it exactly the way the mark scheme says, you don't get a mark.
    Psychology, on the other hand is great. There's a lot to learn but it's quite easy but, a lot of people pick psychology, realise it's not what they thought nor an easy A subject and drop out

    Im aware how hard Biology is gonna be hence why I have decided to not take any other fascilitating subjects along side it. I’m prepared to put in a lot of effort for psychology as I love learning about the brain and how people think etc.

    I do both Psychology and Biology and I personally enjoy them both. Biology is very content heavy, you have to stay on top of the work and if you do it does make it a lot more manageable. We move quite fast through Biology, I don't know if every school does though.
    Psychology also has a lot of content, again we have moved quicker but staying on top of everything really helps, I know people who haven't and they struggle to catch up. I really enjoy both but like I say they are content heavy, although once you know it you know it.
