i picked biology for one of my lc subjects as im in ty now, all of my year(75people) have picked biology with only two choosing physics. our principal cant understand why as theres 40+ chapters in biology and only 20+ in physics and chem. ive heard people say theres a lot of learning but i think i will be fine as long as i study as i go along

Biology easier certainly, but chemistry is much more interesting..much more enjoyable to study. At the end of the day you need to pick the subjects you believe will maximise your points and both are one of the nicer/easier subjects to get get a h1 in...chemistry exam q are very repetitive..and the maths is nothing above JC HL...

biology can get boring at times so personally i prefer chemistry even though i hated in in JC . the biology lc exam is sometimes hashly marked because it is most chosen subject but the exam questions arent that difficult . if you rather learn things off than understanding i would say pick biology

i believe that you should pick biology. i personally chose it as i need it for medicine. but that was one reason why i chose it. it is a very interesting subject that allows you to understand how the human body works, fucntions responds to different responses. i really do advise you to choose it.

Depends on how good you are at learning things off. Biology is a long course (41 chps) and has a lot of defintions and things to be learnt. It's definitely an interesting subject and the material isnt that difficult (in my opinion), but the exam marking schemes are very specific because of the volume of people that do the subject. But again, if you aren't good at learning off maybe a subject with problem solving like physics would be better.

Biology is such a long course! I thought i would be fine, but there is so much learning and it is very detailed! The marking scheme is also very specific. If you are good at learning definitions and methods and stuff i definitely would pick it! But i'm in 6th year and really struggling with it despite the fact i study alot for it. It is so detailed and long! I'm bad at school though!

physics isnt that hard

if picking a science subject 100% go for biology. chemistry & physics are so hard, everyone i know who choose chem or physics hates it so much and would never recommend either unless you need it for a course in college
