    i can't say which is harder, it's different for every person really!! some people think both are easy, some find one or the other more difficult, and there are people who find both impossible!

    personally i think physics and maths complement each other, why not choose to do both if possible? better than taking a 50/50 chance. just an opinion!

    Which, Chem/Bio/ICT/Maths OR Chem/Bio/ICT/Physics would give me more options after A level.
    I'd go for Maths - it will probably leave more options open (unless you want to do a physics degree).
    However, why not scrap ICT and do Chem/Bio/Physics/Maths ?
    ICT really is quite tedious and involves production of vast amounts of coursework.

    Thats what I'd say too, it will enable you a very good choice of degree courses, especially if you do something like chemistry with it, then you could prob do anything ranging from medicine and engineering, to media studies and cookery

    No idea personally but my friend got an easy A in physics but a B in maths AS. To be fair though she is applying for Physics at university

    Most definitely Physics. I barely scraped an E at AS and A level and I had a B at GCSE. Maths is easier if you put the work in.

    Which is harder? i reckon maths

    Which is harder to get an A in? Physics

    I think maths requires much more work and the concepts in it are much more difficult to understand (IMO).Physics lacks the same amount of complexity, but the principles aren't allways as logical as in maths.

    What i'm saying is i found maths more difficult, but i got a better grade in it. Because physics questions can be quite ambiguous compared to maths. Quite often you need to write in the appropriate key-work to get the marks and i found getting the marks harder than in maths. Even though i understood the physics the exams were just harder to do well at.

    Physics is harder I think. C1 is basically GCSE Maths, C2 is a little extension. M1 is simple and S1 is just easy but boring.

    you must have had a piss easy exam board. C1 begins as GCSE no doubt, becasuse all the users come from it but mves very quickly into unknown territory.

    same with physics, its all build upon the knowledge we gained at GCSE.

    i might have been a bit extreme, but a famous quote from my friend is "geography is harder than maths". :rolleyes:

    Personally I would recommend Maths. However, this would only be the case if u plan to drop it after AS, as the A-level Maths course is extremly difficult. Physics has never been a favourite of mine, but that entirely depends upon the person.
