Hi, I did both at A-Level this year. Got A in both

TL;DR: Unless you are going into the medical field, don't pick biology. (I loved it but geography is easier if you don't exactly need biology)

Biology: There is a lot of content. The content can be tricky but you get used to it. The issue? The mark schemes. They want you to phrase things in a VERY particular way and if you don't do it how they want or forget to add a word your answer is wrong even if it's clear you know what you're talking about.

Geography: Easy. The mark schemes are much nicer!

Thank you for the advice. I'll have a good think about it
