Personally, I was better with biology an physics than chemistry.  While I enjoy chemistry, it requires a lot of math.  Biology can be a little boring depending on the teacher.  Physics seems to be a lot of memorization and analysis.  Chemistry is probably the most fun simply because of the type of experiments one gets to participate in during class.  However, I always seemed to struggle in chemistry class because I was not good at that particular type of mathematics.

I am most interested in biology-- the study of living things. I am fascinated by individual organism's adaptations to surviving in their habitats. I am also fond of making connections between various phyla. I like the scientific method of investigation to solve problems, by constructing hypotheses, investigating with controlled experiments, analyzing data and coming up with conclusions in biology. I enjoy learning about the connections living things have to one another and how important biodiversity is to our ultimate survival.

Personal preferences definitely enter into deciding which is "interesting."  Biology intrigues many people because they are affected by their own genetic makeups and are interested in animals and plants. When people look around them, biological elements are salient.  However, chemistry is also very interesting as is physics to those to whom it appeals.  Chemical advances affect people in many ways: medicine, cleaners, fabrics, cosmetics, etc. Physics has an impact on people, too,  especially in day-to-day activities such as driving and flying in jets, or when one goes boating.  Simply put, the more educated one is in a field of science, one is usually more interested in it.

I like Biology because it is easier to understand and doesn't exactly require memorization, calculations and a lot of studying. It actually requires common sense.

You can also put me squarely in the biology camp.  The other two involved WAY too much math to make me really have a huge interest in them.  In addition, I really love animals, so studying biology and understanding animals better was a good fit for me.

I prefer biology.  I guess that because it relates most directly to living organisms.
Chemistry and physics are generally about things that we don't see, at least not directly. But all you have to do is look out your window to see what biology is all about.

Biology is my favorite subject. Because they taught us about life, living things. Biology is the branch of science that deals with the study of living (Plant and animal) and nonliving things (stone).

I think Biology is the best out of those three, because I find chemistry quite hard and Physics is a little boring. Also, biology is something you'll need for a lot of things, many jobs are related to Biology. Biology's got to do with plants, the human body and animals- you need these in your daily life, whereas Chemistry is not something you'll need for many things. Physics would be second on my list as the Solar System is in Physics and that's interesting. But at the end of the day it is your own choice, whatever you like the most. x

Physics. Because you can not do Chemistry without it. Chemistry uses the results of Quantum Mechanics, like one has to solve Schrodinger's equation to get the orbitals and then do all chemistry. Also Physical Chemistry is total Physics.

And then without Chemistry you cannot do Biology so Bio & Chem both depends on the results from Physics.

 

Physics studies from Femto meter and even less up to light years... no other branches of Science is that wide. I love Physics. 

 

But I do feel respect for Bio, because it studies life and this is the subject on which our health and hence life depends but then again new techniques in treatment again rests on inventions in Physics like almost all the diagnostic techniques.

Chemistry is my favourite subject! Personally, I score better in Physics as compared to Chemistry. I can't really say about Biology because I only studied a bit about it. Chemistry is fun when learning about the various colours and reactions. Also, Chemistry can link to both biology and physics easily. It's like the main linkage.

Anyway, it all depends on perspective!

I quite like Chemistry, because it requires application of knowledge, and not just regurgitating facts or formulas. I like Biology, but it might be because I have a fantastic teacher. It also requires a lot of learning. Physics can be boring with a dud teacher, but there the answers are specific and are not subjective at all, which could be both an advantage and a disadvantage

I definitely like biology, although i find it hard to believe in all that evolution crap which is taught. I find it very hard to believe that such perfect human beings and animals is the effect of a small collision that happened trillions of years ago, and that everything that exists today erupted from that.

I don't believe we are derived from apes or monkes or whatever they say. There's so many differences between us and them, and they are not mutations. There are never circumstances in which mutations help an organism. They either don't affect it or hurt it in some way.

It really depends on what you want from it, what you're interested and and why you're doing it. I enjoy all three, but for different reasons:

Biology because it's fascinating to know about all the little ecosystems and functions that just choogle on without most people noticing.

Chemistry because it's pretty awesome going to an even deeper level of how things work- learning about tricksy little atoms and isotopes, and how they react with one another.

Physics because learning about how and why we see things, hear things, say things etc. is pretty cool.

I prefer biology to study over the other two, however chemistry is a close second. I really enjoy learning biology because that gives you such a broad area of study. You can study human biology, specific types of plants and animals, the sky is the limit. However, I am fascinated with chemistry, especially when you can do certain mixtures of chemicals to create beautiful or interesting chemical reactions.

I am interested in Biology because it was fun studying about life and animals. In biology we did so much fun experiments and labs. I learned a lot from biology and it opened my mind to new things. We even got to dissect animals like frogs in the class too.
