    I create a mental diagram of the situation, in full 3D, changing woth time, and with all the labels you'd expect... Well, that's what I do for mechanics.

    Lots and lots of ODEs and PDEs.

    It is frustrating.

    You're right! It would be brilliant if they could just have a question where you're given data from an experiment and have to do it like an ISA, but teachers couldn't tell you what to write.
    Yeh it would be so much more fitting :/ oh well we've done it now, don't think I've done too well on it but hopefully I do well in the summer exams to pull it up

    My physics teachers have always been really strict on this. (Although, there was a huge scandal in the biology ISA last year, leading to them all doing EMPAS this year). It just means that this year, now regulations have been tightened up, we're all still prepared!
    Yeh mine too. Ooh really what's EMPAS?

    My name is Josh
    I have accepted an unconditional offer for Physics w/ foundation year at The University of Manchester

    I got ABC in Maths, Chemistry & Biology, but have spent the last year away from education

    I've become really interested in Physics since college, having originally dropped it early in AS (big mistake!)

    Can't wait to start now!

    Hey everyone,

    Received 4 unconditional offers for Physics with a preliminary year (23 years old so I have been out of eduacation a few years, and also messed up my second year of A Levels due to sudden sight loss!)

    I have picked Uni of Bristol, and just wanted to see if anyone else on here is starting on the preliminary year?

    Hi all,

    In September I'm starting the integrated science foundation year at Manchester Uni. I have A levels in Maths, Bio and Chem, but I'm doing the foundation year because I've had a year out and want to do Physics.

    My question is: how hard is physics? We'll be doing material equivalent to a -level standard, I think. I got an A in maths, including an A* in mechanics. How do others who did maths and physics consider the difficulty? Harder than maths? Easier? What are the big differences?

    Thanks all!

    Hi

    You'll be fine with all of the maths content in A Level standard physics, there isn't even any calculus (although I would suspect you'll probably do some). There's really just quite a bit to remember, none of it is particularly hard to get your head around.

    I would say it was harder than maths because of the amount of content, definitely not in terms of difficulty/complexity.

    You should be absolutely fine, especially if you were okay with mechanics as personally I found that the mathematical content in even M1 goes beyond the scope of the physics A-level course. Good luck with your foundation year!

    Thank you
    I've been looking through some old mechanics papers so hopefully I won't be too rusty!
