    Don't let your natural intuition get involved is the first way to cope with physics (in my opinion).
    That is really my only way :P

    It is much easier than Chemistry in my opinion, I am at A2 now and carried on with both. Finding Physics far easier than Chemistry!!!

    EDIT: To make sense!!

    you just contradicted yourself! :eek:

    As for the question: I did IGCSE, easy. AS, easy. A2 - it's doable. The only problem is the new spec - they moved too many things around, it doesn't make 'chronological' (for lack of a better word) sense.

    It's more explaining than maths, though. (although maths is a major part as well. )

    Take a breath, read it slowly, realise your fail and continue with your life.

    Geez, reading comprehension these days...

    Its a lot more difficult than gcse physics, but its doable if you're willing to put the effort in.

    The actual maths in physics isn't too bad, just re-arranging algebra, if you revise well for it you should be ok but don't expect to do really well....(UNIT 4 tomorrow D

    Always the optimist eh? Why shouldnt the OP expect to do really well if they put all the work in?

    I think with physics, you'll either find it very easy or very difficult.
    From my experience, those who do well in maths also do well in physics, and vice versa.
    Also, I wouldn't pick it from an 'easier/harder than chemistry' point of view.
    Both subjects require quite a lot of work, and this work will be more fulfilling if you enjoy the subject.
    Pick the one you enjoy most.

    I sailed through my chemistry and physics GCSE and got an A in maths But at AS its Uber difficult. If I were to choose my options again i'd take maths too, all the maths people think its easy.

    This is speaking from purely MY experience of AS Physics so far by the way. I never did GCSE Physics but at the beginning of the AS course, it wasn't too bad after I had grasped all the concepts. Saying that however, I recently did my Jan exam (OCR) and am convinced I failed terribly! On OCR, they expect you to know the basic concepts and then apply them in a way you haven't learnt about before!

    I definitely woud not continue with Physics to A2 for fear of dying from overworking myself!
