Everyone who's done their science GCSEs has told me that biology is the easiest science.

But I was discussing the other day with my friends how I find chemistry easier and so did they.

Maybe it's because I've had more exposure to the subject.

What's the easiest science for you?

In terms of AS, Biology.

If anyone does physics, they would know why physics turned my worst subject on Tuesday.

Chemistry is good and all, but unlike Biology, a lot of it doesn't match up during both AS and GCSEs. So many questions unanswered. Whereas biology is straight up logic.

I'm not on AS.
I'm only on GCSE.
But is AS the same as A-Level or different?

AS and A-level are different things. AS is year 1, while A-level is both year 1 and 2.

AS biology is basically your GCSE, but a bit extra, and harder questions. Overall, same thing.

Whereas chemistry, is a total change over, where you're told to "forget" some GCSE things.

well it all depends on your mindset , naturally people go for biology as it requires applied common sense, chemistry is mainly for those who go in depth into understanding topics whilst physics also widely regarded as '' just maths '' links the two components; understanding and logical reasoning (common sense) together

personally speaking im more of a biology person

At GCSE it was Chem, only because that was the only one we had a half decent teacher for.

The content for Bio is ok but the exam questions (new spec) is where is becomes a little more irritating.

In GCSE I found chemistry the easiest and at A-level I also think it is my least hardest a-level,I think in biology it is harder to get the marks because of how specific it is and content heavy.I absolutely love a-level chemistry though so that is probably why it is less hard for me than biology.I don't do physics though-but I regret not doing it,should have done it as my 4th a-level or have done it instead of maths.

I think Chemistry is the "easiest" of three really hard subjects. I hate them all.

Thank god for English Lang and Lit I shall say!

Biology is the easiest science because it doesn't really require any thinking - you just memorise stuff (this goes for both GCSE and A Levels)

Chemistry has the easiest exams.

Physics is quite nice at GCSE and an absolute nightmare at AS.

I think physics is really interesting, but I am better at biology. Chemistry is okay ish I guess. I am struggling to remember the equations for physics so I think I will do best in biology tbh
