I am currently in high school in year 10. Not far into my GCSEs i am expecting A*'s and A's.
I want to take maths, further maths and physics for my A Levels, but the conundrum i am faced with is the question of which fourth option I should take and whether further maths will be too difficult for me to grade highly, I am an A* in maths at the moment and i am doing a further maths GCSE course also, which i find rather difficult to grasp but my scores are okay. I am still unsure on what career i would like after university, but the ideal job would be in physics, which i have heard is difficult to find a permanent or well-paid job in.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
A-level maths isn't really anything like GCSE maths.
I personally found F.Maths quite easy, but then I had some good teachers.
I would recommend it, if you're going to be doing physics at uni, as it'll help with some of the first year maths. Sure, uni will teach you everything you need to know, but knowing most of the maths before you start will mean you have more time to spend on stuff you're unsure about it.
If you don't care, do something "fun". English Lit might make you more rounded.
Personally I did Maths, F.Maths, Physics, Chemistry and AS Philosophy.
Philosophy can be fun if you have the right teacher. But Chemistry might be helpful to give you a better understanding of the natural sciences.
