    Biology or Art ?? JCScenes

    Can anyone give me some advice on these subjects? I enjoy both so I think it's down to difficulty and average grades on each. Opinions?

      Biology is entirely theory based, but there is also quite alot of theory in Art also. I think you should pick it based off of what you'd like to be in the future? For example, I wish to be a nurse so I picked mostly science based subjects. If you're not sure on what career path you will be taking, I would then suggest you pick which subject you generally get better grades in

      @chan-jessop would you say biology is safer points wise?

      Im currently doing both, biology is 100% theory so if youre ok with study its lovely and art is 37% theory, the rest is project work youll have done a month before the exam. I think art curriculum is changing but there is no set curriculum for art history which makes it difficult. Personally I prefer biology and id say its easier to get points there but if you like project work art might be better

      Personally, I'd say Biology is much safer points wise. If you're good at studying and learning off theory then Biology is the safest root! I hear alot of people this year (6th years) complaining about how difficult the Art History is and about the stresses of the projects

      Biologyy is quite a difficult subject I don't think I realised how hard it would be but definitely If your good at learning and understanding things go for it or art either are lovely subjects

      Think its going to be a 10 week project where you have to make like a scrapbook? Similar to how the gcse's work in England I think
