Hi! I’m currently in year 11 and I’m going to choose what I want to take in A-levels. I was thinking about taking psychology, Biology and philosophy. Is biology hard as people make it out to be?

I'd say its very content heavy. there is a lot you need to memorise and then learn how to apply as the exam questions look for very specfic answers

Hi i currently do A level Biology and Psychology and I’m predicted As for both, I wouldn’t say it’s as hard as people say, at GCSE I did combined and got 66 so I’m not the brightest student but if you work at it I’m sure you can do well in any subject you put your mind to

Ahaha thanks! I hope you do well in whatever you do! Also I know some friends of mine who at the age of 16 picked odd a levels that don’t compliment eachother and now struggle to pick a degree to do. Plan early and don’t stress! You always have the choice of changing your A levels as well

😂😂😂😂 ahahahah! Well start really small by looking carbon which makes up a lot of our life like our body and food! As you move through the course you you learn about fats, carbs, proteins. Ecosystems, immune response, respiration, photosynthesis. It’s really interesting! At first it was overwhelming bc of how the info looked like on the page, but really after a week I was like 0.0 oHh this isn’t bad AT ALL.

Tbh look at GCSEs. Are they hard? Alevels will be as equally as hard. People say alevels are a level up but don’t look at it that way. It will only be hard in the beginning because the content is new. Don’t worry about it. Just choose alevels you like. Biology is quite fun and interesting, I’ve heard that psychology is fun and some say it’s boring (but this is just according to others)
Good luck!
