    Its for AS level, but I plan to keep them both on for yr 13,
    so you can meet deadlines and the history isn't killing you? :redface:

    Yeah I do both biology and history... they are my most boring subjects certainly but the workload is definitely manageable.

    There is no reason you should think these subjects to give a greater workload than any other academically-rigorous subjects.

    My workload for Biology is by far the lightest (to the point that it's negligible compared to other subjects...), I think, which makes me very glad I chose to take it. I get by doing nearly nothing the whole year, before finally, at some stage, deciding to make notes from the textbook and do past papers- and from just this it's easy to score high in exams.

    OOTH the workload for History can be quite strenuous, but definitely manageable. You have to do lots of essays, and depending on the student/teacher, a lot of reading, but if you find History interesting (which you should ) then it's all fine.

    And Maths is also relaxing in the sense that you don't really get Maths homework.

    Yay for biology and history
    Personally, Biology AQA for me has been pretty easy- it's a lot like GCSE, except a hell of a lot more topics. Apparently Biology AS/A-level is the hardest step up from GCSE, but I'm not too sure about that. If you have a strong interest in Biology, it should be fine for you.
    As for History (AQA again for me), It's been my favourite subject so far. At first it seemed really difficult but then all of a sudden, it just clicked And for me, the time periods of unit 1 and unit 2 overlap, which is really useful because sections like the First World War and the Moroccan Crises keep coming up again.
    They're a lot more work than my other subjects, but also my favourites.

    :hmmm: You must be crazy to find such uber interesting subjects boring.
    :p:

    I do History and Biology and i find the workload of history so much more manageable than Biology. The workload of both is okay though so don't worry, if you find them interesting you shouldbe able to cope quite easily
