so right now some of the year 11s in my school are in the process of applying back to my schools sixth form and I'm already planning to take maths and physics but I'm struggling to decide between biology and art. i enjoy both subjects equally and i really don't know which one to take... which one do you recommend?

It depends, do you know what you want to do when you are older?

If you do( and you wanna go to uni) Che K the course requirements.

Also, I hear that art is very time consuming at GCSE so I'd assume it'd be like that but worse at A level.

im not really sure what i want to be when im older but i do know that i want to go to uni.... genetics is quite interesting but arcchitecture is also quite interesting and i feel like art will be good for architecture however biology will be better for genetics

Check the course requirements for both courses to help you make your decision.

Well maybe consider swapping physics for Bio and taking art? That might help you to keep your options open. I think it’s best to have a range of subjects if you’re not sure about uni corse.
I did bio, chem, sociology and history because I wasn’t sure when I started.

Hey- I do both Biology and Art a level. Personally, I find art massively time-consuming and have compared it to a bit of a battle over the past 2 years. It hasn't been easy at all. I didn’t really think it would be as rough as what people have described, but to be completely honest it has been a huge workload. It is totally different to how you work in other subjects (especially sciences) and it feels like the process of putting together the portfolio is more tactical then skilful at times. In terms of what I would say to take if you are choosing out of the two- I would pick biology, but that’s down to my personal career aspirations and the fact that I do actually really love Biology. I would also recommend you look at course requirements because I would think that you would need Biology for genetics as a requirement, as well as a second science. Most Science related courses will prefer 2 sciences and/or maths.

physics is a definite option for me, nothing can make me change it

lol i sound like a nerd for wanting to do physics but its one of my fav subjects xD

You generally shouldn’t do biology without chemistry as they tend to go hand in hand. If. I’m not mistaken a number of bio degrees require or recommend chemistry!

This is rubbish. Check what the courses you want to do require or recommend. Yes, they recommend chemistry in some cases, but I know plenty of people who did biology without chemistry. There is very little that is crossover or that goes hand in hand.
