Bio or chem

I'm thinking of taking Physics and Comp Sci for sure and not sure for the last subject. Chemistry seems to overlap with physics a bit but i don't know if that'll help with study and it seems harder than bio. Biology seems easier than chem but the course is soo long. Idk if i should just go with bio cuz its easier or pick chem

i do both chem and bio and although theres loads of deatail etc in bio i spend soooo much time on chem and find it much harder to understand. I would suggest picking bio also my freinds say that chem and physics dont overlap that much

I do both, but I wouldn't do Chemistry if you don't need it for college requirements

I feel like because you have a mathsy brain you would prefer Chem, i do both and spend soooo much time studying biology.

chemistry isnt hard but you really do need to understand everything with bio you can just get by with memorising everything

hi! i do chemistry and biology. biology is mostly theory. doing lots of exam questions is a simple way to study because the questions tend to be similar so you can memorize just about everything, whereas chemistry is more about concepts. there are questions that repeat but i've found that for chemistry you really have to understand and think about what you are learning. it totally depends on how you study best and what your goals are :)

Honestly I think that towards the end of sixth year chemistry is getting alot easier than bio there is huge overlap with physics towards the end of the course and we are already finished the chem course where as in biology there is quite a few weeks left and its just alot more boring.

i do chem. chose it because i thought it was a shorter course. it is actually much longer all the biology classes finished ages ago. I think there is a lot of theory in both.

25000 students do LC Biology. Only 6000 do LC Chemistry. Chemistry is FAR more useful and links to many fabulous careers and the demand is greater. Chemistry teaches processes. Biology teaches facts. DO CHEMISTRY!! (And the irony is, I am a Biology teacher!)
