    Do Physics. It's like learning a new language. A-level Physics is highly regarded among universities and employers as well.

    Thank you! Physics I'm not even kidding I've been revising since the first week😂 I found it so hard and I felt so much worse than everyone else so I really worked hard because i was intimidated especially with all the boys in my class/people doing further maths. Chemistry I was also revising all year but chemistry doesn't pull together until the end. Like I got a D in my Christmas mock lol, then worked even harder, did all the past papers 3+ each times, even the ones from like 2005 lol. I spent the most hours on physics definitely and second most hours on chemistry. Both I worked so hard for so there's no way out of that but obviously one will be more enjoyable than the other 😋 if you take M1 unit in your maths then that'll help you so much with mechanics! I struggled with that the most but obviously I didn't do maths 😛 mechanics is a lot of applying and practice, as is electricity. Particle physics is the mostly memory part and most fun imo 😛

    Cool, loool, guess ill start early too. that shows hard work and determination pays off, so you deserved it. And ohh, everyone in my school got a D in AS chemsitry, except a few, and they said i shouldnt pick it, and yeh ill probably take M1, so im leaning more towards phsyics, i should start my summer task to see if i like it. All about rockets and forces and stuff lol

    Do what you like, if still stuck then compare the syllabus, the sixth form your going would have tolf you what examining board it's/it should be on their website and see which one appeals to you more.

    Also look at what uni course you might do, if your going uni, and what career you might wanna do, no rushhhhh dw.
    Either way......WELCOME TO YEAR 12!!! it's hard prepare for that, the jump is no joke
