how do you define best though? you couldn't have physics without maths, you could have maths without physics, but, would there be any point in having all this maths if you didn't apply it? Our lives would be immeasurably ****ter had physics not been developed.
Ignoring the people who are (kind of rightly) being awkward by saying you can't compare the two, I prefer studying maths to physics. Maths is incredibly complex while also being simple and fundamental. Physics is less pure.
By A levels I doubt many people have been introduced to any type of real mathematics or physics. From the sound of it, physics is incredibly different at degree level, too.
I actually think physics has more perks. It's all about real world application and invention, and if it was mastered (with the help of mathematics) then we could find out the mysteries of the universe first hand. Much like the astronomers and astronauts quote in Jurassic Park.

for me: maths is piss easy. physics is rock hard. soooo, id say physics
I sorta agree! I love maths because I find it so incredibly straight forward at the level at which I'm studying it (pretty low). I find Physics a bit harder but a lot more interesting! I mean, I must admit that algebra gets me super excited sometimes, but then there's physics! I don't understand why all people dont fall on to there knees in awe at the sheer beauty of the explainable universe! AAAAA geek out!
