    Is it mostly essay work and if so is there a lot of homework, similar quantity to history ?

    Physics:

    Do you find it interesting? I have a feeling it may be VERY boring lol even though I am really interested in it.

    What level are you considering taking these subjects at? I can't speak for Economics, but for Physics how interesting you find it will depend on personal preference. Many people really enjoy the subject - I certainly did for A-Levels, though the part of my uni course focussed on physics did start to become quite heavily mathematical. What other subjects are you planning on taking (and what might you want to study in future)? Physics goes well with other science subjects, particularly Chemistry and Maths, so if you're considering taking them then Physics would be a good choice.

    If you are interested in Physics then I think you will enjoy it, I do. It is all about things that can be related to every day life so I find it really interesting!

    I do economics at A2, and I dont get much homework at all, but it really depends on your tutor surely?
    Can sometimes have a few essay questions to do, but it's nothing excessive. I cant compare it to history as ive never done history.
