I’m a week into 6th form and currently doing geography, maths, further maths and physics. However, I really enjoy biology, and I almost feel jealous of people who are doing biology a level, so I’m considering swapping physics for biology. I got 9s in both at GCSE, however i found physics harder to understand so had to put more work in to get this. The amount of maths in physics shouldn’t be an issue, as I’m doing maths and further maths so there is crossover, but I’m not keen on my teacher and I’m worried I will find it dull. I find biology interesting but I don’t want to just be memorising content over and over, because geography is also content heavy. Is biology more content heavy than physics? And would I be making it too hard for myself by doing biology as it is completely different to maths, whereas physics will have more crossover with my other subjects.

This completely depends on what youre intending to study at university, however if you prefer biology then TAKE IT because you will have to study your subject very intensively for 2 years and if you dont enjoy it you WILL NOT be able to study as hard as you need to in order to do well.

personally I took biology alevel (just got my grade a few weeks ago) and I really enjoyed it!
