    Im in year 11 and im thinking of taking physics at a college (long road sixth form) where 77% get D-U in physics; with the OCR Advancing Physics (B).

    I might take it, but if i dont get a C or B - I will be annoyed as I am aiming for around ABB when I finish college.

    Is it worth taking the risk?

    Im B for maths, A for science, but physics isnt my strongest area, but algebra is..

    Well basically everyone on TSR hates that particular physics syllabus. I mean, the actual exams are ridiculous and ridiculously marked, but the actual course isn't too bad, and if you don't stick rigidly to it it's actually pretty interesting. Except the coursework which is really, really annoying.
    Anyway, lots of people have lots of different opinions on the difficulty/interest of A-Level physics, so it's kind hard for us to decide for you.
    I think physics is awesome, and, for the most part, pretty easy, and am on that exam spec.
