    Hi im currently in year 12 and thinking of doing a physics degree (or chemistry)

    Im doing AS-level in physics, chemistry and biology predicted ABB

    Do all universities cover things like Schrodinger equation, Electrodynamics, thermodynamics and solid states? Its just most of the courses I have looked at at different uni's seem to either call their modules different names or don't mention them at all so its a bit confusing on what they contain

    The other things is the maths, I only achieved a C at GCSE and only did foundation so couldn't do it at A-level. I'm currently teaching myself higher maths and going to sit the exam in November (as I wont have any other exams then) and hopefully get an A. I would be applying to a foundation year in physics and was wondering how hard is the maths going to be? Do you think I would be able to cope with the difficulty of it on the foundation year and on the degree itself? I would want to achieve a 2:1 at the end of the degree.

    thakns for reading and any help you give
