    If you don't do maths a level, is it possible to do well in physics as?

    I'm thinking about taking Biology,Chemistry, Physics and History. Do any of you do this combination of subjects?

    From personal experience, I'd only do Physics if you love maths. Trust me, I paid the price for not listening to this advice.

    Really? :s which would you say is easier out of maths and physics? I admit I don't actually like physics or maths but having to pick 1 of them in order to meet entry requirements. Is physics basically maths mechanics at a level?

    Physics probably isn't as hard as I think it is, I just really really hate it...

    1. History (Love to analyse periods and am going to do this at Uni... comes most naturally of all)
    2. Economics (Modular at present. Often justified MC/and common sense; you can also choose data response/essay questions).
    3. Geography (Relatively straightforward, but much to learn/remember and skills section can be very random.)
    4. English Lit (Coursework is easy, but exam challenging - particularly unseen.)

    1. Psychology (the essays you need to write are long, but there are a specific list of essays which will go to make up each exam, so you can in theory memorise your entire exam before you get there - although it's a lot of information)

    2. Law (the essay writing is a little more challenging than psychology but it's still pretty straightforward; I also find the whole subject really interesting which makes it easier for me)

    3. History (I find this really interesting as well, but getting high marks in essays is a bit more difficult for me, and there's a lot of outside reading which I don't have for my other subjects)

    4. Maths (as you can probably tell from my other subjects I'm more of an essay person, so maths can sometimes be a real struggle - I have a lot of respect for people who are good at maths )

    Physics is mainly maths, many equations, many calculations (atleast it was for me, AQA I think). I had an interest in Physics at school but only found the quantum physics module appealing from the whole of the 2yrs.

    It's really best to ask teachers at the open days, as they will know the module better. But for me, maths was maths; physics was physics + maths. Then again, I found nothing intriguing in maths...so they were both equally depressing for me :lol:
