    what's the best science subject? orlab123

    hi, I'm looking for some advice on what science subject is easy enough but not too easy😂 I've heard that biology is really hard but I'm interested in it or should I consider doing chemistry or physics? I got a C in the junior cert and biology was always my best one

      This year at higher level the following were the %age of students who got A, B or C grades:

      Biology 68.5%

      Physics 70.1%

      Chemistry 71.4%

      I think biology is probably easiest there's not much to understand you just have to learn it off really. I like chemistry but it has a lot of new concepts to understand before you decide look at entry requirements for college courses as some courses require you to have done chemistry for the leaving cert

      if youre good at learning definitions and visual learning through videos and doing practical experiments choose biology, if you have a good level of maths and you are good at problem solving, choose physics, for physics I also find you have to have a keen interest in the actual topic. I do both biology and physics, but i dont do chemistry. I wish i did as its apparently easier than physics but not as easy as biology.

      and dont consider doing chemistry if u dont like maths or chemicals and periodic table of elements

      and physics if youre not good at maths its not a good subject to pick

      I find biology hard and i'm so slow at learning but you tube videos for each chapter really helps if you have a visual way of seeing things, if you are creative it helps a lot mind maps slide shows, but yet again no subject was made easily for the leaving you have to work in all of them and what ever the outcome make it your best :)

      I do both Biology and Physics. I enjoy both but find them hard since biology is mainly learning based and physics is maths based. I would recommend with going with the one you find interesting because even if you find it hard that will push you to learn and enjoy it. Also there are great videos online for biology such as crashcourse so maybe that would help you out as well.
