Would you recommend doing biology and chemistry a levels? Why/why not? If not, which subjects would you recommend and why? And are there many career pathways you can choose with these subjects?
Hi! Biology and Chemistry can be very interesting subjects and can open a lot of doors for you. However, they do come with their difficulties! Biology has an insane amount of content from the get-go, and my friends who take Chemistry have all said it's really hard at first. The majority of the class got Es, Ds, and Cs on the induction test, so Chem takes a hell of a lot of work. Don't let that put you off though, it gets better once you're more used to it! They do overlap at some points too- there's a unit in Biology called Biological Molecules which involves a lot of Chem. Most of the people I know who do Bio and Chem together want to go into medicine or veterinary school, but there are lots of other options! So in short: both are challenging but they're also a lot of fun
I’m so sorry for spamming you with questions, I’m just really unsure atm and don’t know what to pick at all. Thanks so much for replying though!
