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.

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.

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 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.

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 have thing for biology! I am interested in the way world just interacts with each creature and I find it interesting that the earth makes such beautiful things. Think about it every being on this planet have a different bodily function yet we all simultaneously live and interact with the environment. It's fascinating! This is why I hope to be either a marine biologist one day.

Personally, I am interested in chemistry because I thought that mixing different chemicals and making new ones were fun. In my chemistry class, we mixed different chemicals to see what the results would be. Once we had follow instructions to try and turn the mixed chemicals different colors. Chemistry is used in science but is also used in cooking. You combine the ingredients to make a new food dish. That's why I think chemistry is interesting.

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.

Based on my experience, I personally like Biology over Physics and Chemistry. I like Biology because I am able to study about life. From animal diversity to mitosis, biology really opened my eyes to see beyond what a 'living thing' is.

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.

Personally , my favorite is chemistry . I love chemistry because of the labs we're able to do . Labs in chem usually involves fire and chemical which interests me a lot . I also really like bio too though . I love dissecting since it makes me feel like a surgeon sometimes , but I don't really like learning about the environment .

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 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.

Chemistry because it involves both the practicality of physiscs and theory based work from biology.

Chemistry and Biology, I can't stand Physics....I guess for me Chemistry and Biology overlap a lot and for Physics I have a bad teacher so it's pretty much self-study...and there's too much math involved.

I like both Chemistry and Biology ... Physics? Absolutely hate it! I never understand the concepts involved in Physics on a whole.

i am more interested in chemistry probably because my instructor is jovial and make everything seem easy when explaining....chemistry is my best. I kind of struggled with physics in high school and am still afraid to start taking my chemistry course right now in college.Biology is also fun and you have to read very wide.

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 personally enjoy them all but biology is my favourite as that is visible in the world around us and is fairly simple to grasp and apply.

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!

bilogy is easier but chemistry is more intresting becaiuse to me,you get to have fun with the chemicals and each one of them has a purpose to other chwmicals or to the body.

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.

I love all sciences because i study all of them,neither of them is bad but their is one which one loves most inspite of the others and as for me....that will be biology.It is because i am so into how the human body functions.

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

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 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.
