Physics, Chemistry or Biology?

Post  VirtualDalek on Tue 01 Jan 2013, 19:05

Which science do you prefer and why?

Personally, I really enjoy Physics, as it comes easily to me and is very interesting as an insight into how the world works. Looking forward to further Physics at A level and Uni, possibly. Having said that, I do enjoy Chemistry, for the explosions and fire and chemicals, hehe Razz

Mmmmm, never tried them and after an incident at my school, I'm going to try and pay as much attention as I can.

I'm ok at all three, but I think I like chemistry the most. It's mainly because I'm terrible at biology and learning stuff. Then a lot our physics is based on space and is therefore mostly theories. Science is meant to be about concrete evidence and out of the three, physics has the least proven stuff.

Science is overall my favourite subject at school, it really interests me and I hope to maybe go into a science-related profession. We started our GCSE level Science at the start of Year 9 (so September 2011), and since then we've only done Chemistry and Biology, which we'll finish off this year, and then we're doing Physics GCSE in Year 11. So I can't judge Physics to the same level as the other two, but out of Chemistry and Biology - definitely Chemistry. I find it a lot more logical.

Goodness me, I don't know where to start really. I like all of the sciences, although I seem to be best at biology, as it's quite physical and easier to explain things. Then again, I can do the maths side of physics really well, and generally the physics topics are a lot more interesting.
That said, the most interesting stuff I've seen is biochemistry, which, as the name suggests, is the gap in between bio and chem. The reason I say this is because it's quite literally a bridge between the particle and intermolecular worlds of physics and chemistry, and more physical and molecular worlds of biology, earth sciences and astronomy. One of the things I found most interesting was looking at how biological molecules are made directly from atoms, and how this explains the properties of the larger molecules. It's really quite complex stuff, so I find it hard to explain without going into great detail. All the reading I've done is outside of GCSE work, although I think we've touched on a few of the fundamental biochemical principals.

The thing I find most hard is that fact that GCSE science is made up of lots of lies! From what I've heard, the GCSE rulebook gets thrown in the bin for A-level because it was so dilute and wishy-washy, so be warned!

Well, Biology was the only subject that interested me when I was making my SG course choices back in 2010, but even at that, I am not really interested in it. Razz

It's alright, because it gives you an insight as to what happens in the world around us, in animals, in the human body, in plants, etc - but I just cannot stay focused at school, and often do not complete the homework, etc. But, having said that, I do perform well in the end-of-topic assessments, and the S3/4 exams - achieving 3-4 SG C-G grades.

Just done my science homework, a mock exam for all three, phew! I think I did best in the physics one, as that's the only one I completed without looking back though my notes Razz

GCSE physics is a complete doddle. As I said before, at A-level it gets harder. I think the reason it appeals to boys so much is because you can work most of it out, and there's really not much learning involved. The learning that is involved is rather logical and straightforward anyway, at least I think so, and once you understand it, it's not that hard to apply the principals to the 'real life situations' the GCSE people like to throw at us.

Either Chemistry or Biology, but I suppose Physics is alright. I'm doing Triple for my GCSE and so far it's been good!

I personally prefer Biology because I found Chemistry to be quite boring except for the practicals. I haven't started Physics yet so I don't have an opinion on it yet.

Chemistry definitely, it's the most interesting but I don't really like any of them...

Chemistry has gained some of my attention moving onto my 3rd GCSE unit on it, exploring the elements and the periodic table is strangely interesting. Physics is great at the moment, out teacher is great and hilarious, wouldn't be half as good without him Razz Biology is pretty cool too, dissected some lungs on Monday, a strangely satisfying lesson. Very Happy

Im not a fan of any really, i had to take Bio and Chemestry for 3rd year as there were no other choices, and Physics doesnt intrest me that much. But if i had to choise, it would be Chemestry for the fact that we blow some stuff up in it

Chemistry for me guys. I moved up a "Set 2" a bit ago i think it was the end of march. The teacher I had in set 3 was really good and helpful but the teacher I have now isn't as affective with my education Crying or Very sad

I take all three and Maths for A-Level. I hate Chemistry... so much... I find it too hard and does not make any sense at A-Level to me. I have a friend who loves it though and is dead good, but really annoys me (as I can't do it). Biology is my favourite and I want to do it at Uni, but without Chemistry, at A2 (as I'll probably drop it) I'll be limited. I love Physics (particle Physics and mechanics, but not waves). I would also have particle Physics as a study option later if I wanted. As soon as you get to do that, Physics opens up and doesn't look like equations. You see how equations are made, by experiments done by famous Physicists and see how something so simple took years to discover because it was so obscure. Love it... and my teachers for all subjects are great too.

TFD Very Happy
