    Should I Do Biology for Leaving Cert rooney34

    I am currently in Ty and I was thinking that i should do Biology for Leaving Cert. I done the Ordinary Paper and got a C in Junior Cert Science. I am thinking of doing one science subject for Leaving Cert.

      it depends on what topic in science you preferred in junior cert

      the biology course is long and can be tedious at times but if u pay attention in class and learn ur stuff ur fine

      the chemistry course is much shorter and has more experiments but can also seen boring at times

      the phy/chem course is suppose to be easier than both biology and chemistry

      if u intend to study a course in college involving science than doing bio/chem for l.c. will help depending on certain courses

      I found the biology section of Science a little better than Chemistry or Physics

      Out of all the science subjects for Leaving Cert, Biology is the easiest to understand but it's really note-intensive. There's a lot of learning of definitions, whereas in other sciences like Chemistry, its more about understanding the topics than learning off definitions.

      I don't know about Physics & Chemistry (as I don't do either) but I chose Biology as I had a genuine interest in the biology section of Science, and I wanted to do at least one science subject (I got a C in HL). At most times, Biology is an enjoyable subject (I do enjoy studying it) however the course is quite long and there's a lot of content. Though you can influence that by making notes (and that's where you can use Studyclix to help with resources needed) and make it a lot shorter than the book says. I usually take the most relevant stuff that would be asked in a question and practice exam questions.

      And if you want to complete further study in science related courses, Biology would go a long way to be honest!! :)

      No biology is an absolute nightmare, it's an extremely heavy subject and impossible to revise

      Biology very hard. But if your into learning and doing well I suggest you do it as I kept both Biology and Chemistry on. If anything I'd stay away from chemistry as it's very heavy work but then again if your a mathematical kind of person it's good for the equation and working sides of it but then again I would stay away from it. Biology is grand once you keep on top of it every night and you should be fine! I like both but very heavy work!
