Have anyone done PE and Chemistry for A levels? If so... which one did you find easier? Also is there any specific A level that is too hard that you wouldn't recommend for me to take?

i have a friend who did both pe and chemistry, but dropped chemistry after y12 because she didnt enjoy it.

chemistry is definately harder, but i know that pe is not easy. theres lots you have to know for pe, a bit of biology chem physics history sociology applied to sports. i heard from my friend that its quite hard to get high marks in the coursework style work they have to and its hard to score highly in playing your chosen sports unless youre really good at it. which is good if you are!

chemistry is a smaller range to study. theres also no coursework. if you enjoy chem, you'll love the a level. theres no denying its hard work but the amount of work is smaller than most a levels

Was thinking about doing Physiotherapy, but still wanted to keep my choices open. So I think I will do PE, Maths, Business, and Biology.

Thanks! Yah I'm a swimmer so I think the coursework is fine, as I got a full mark in my swimming in my GCSE PE. I definitely don't enjoy chemistry, but I love PE. I think I will go with PE as I enjoy it much more and my mark in it is also a lot higher.

I'd strongly recommend focussing on 3 not 4. Of those 4 which are your best/favourite subjects? Obviously both Biology and PE have relevance to Physiotherapy.

I also think it would be better to concentrate on 3 A levels, although maybe you could start with 4 and drop one out of Maths or Business depending on how they go?

But in my school, we have to choose 4 then drop 1, and only continue 3 as A Levels in year 13.

Ok, alternatively can you do an EPQ instead of a 4th subject?

I think it's a bit obvious that Chemistry is harder?

Don't do physics .
You'll definitely have a small class and you're always put on the spot.
It's hard conceptually and maths wise as well. However it is interesting .
we started A2 and it's pretty much GCSE at the start but then it gets really REALLY hard .
But you might like it don't take my word though.
And chemistry is alright I really like organic and physical and inorganic are O.K.
Don't know about A2 though.
I really like biology I'm glad I picked it .
Sorry if I sound contradictory in the beginning .
Hope this helped
