I'm currently doing my gcses and applied to my school for 6th form. I chose art, photography and textiles a-levels but I had to replace one due to overlapping schedules.
So I can either choose from history or biology a level. I don't know which one to choose. I want an art career so I'm confused on what to choose and which will be easier to learn.

Both are hard but I really just want to pass them.
Anyone's opinion? 🙂 thanks

As someone who took both history and biology A-level... don't pick biology. I would only pick biology if you're going to need it in the future. Otherwise, it's not worth the pain. :/
Do you enjoy history? Are you interested in the topics your school provides? If so, you'll be fine with history.

I'm okay with history... not the best but I can manage if I work really hard. Thank you for your help😊

Well hopefully, with photography I want to do a job taking photograph of others and for art I would like to pursue a personal career- like a second job but photography just in case I fail☺️

I would like to have my own gallery or sell my art sculptures😊

Do History.
Biology is pretty useless without another science or maths and History is a solid essay-based subject.

I would say decide based on your strengths, if you feel youre equally good at both subjects.
If youre good at writing essays and analysis, then history
if you'd rather answer more straightforward questions with one right answer (regurgitating info) , then biology

biology has a lot of content that you just have to memorise, history is better for thinking a little bit more and it will be less of a burden. However if you have a passion for biology then take it
