    Last year I chose subjects that weren't my strong point, except maths

    so I'm redoing year 12 but I'm doing A2 Maths
    I need 97 UMS in M1 & C4 to get A overall
    Ouch, well good luck to you then

    I am. how about you?
    Hopefully Apparently it gets ridiculously hard. But that's what they said for AS, so I don't believe it.

    HAHA. I actually like physics a lot. And yeah, I am looking forward to do astronomy at the University and so I will choose astrophysics as my A2 option.

    That sounds awesome.
    Have always been interested in astronomy, but my real passion lies with Chemistry xD
    You can choose modules?!

    I want to do mechanical, wonder if they'll let us choose

    In physics yes. 1 is astrophysics (lovely!) and the other option is radioactivity (radiographer would be the career in physics then).

    You will do mechanics in A2 physics anyway. So, these 2 are just choices.

    im doing A2, and when i tell you phya4 is HARD, i mean HARD, phya2 is a flick of phya4, phya5 is okay like you said you have a compulsory chapter (thermal and nuclear physics) and then 4 options ( i chose option b MEDICAL PHYSICS), i like it, but no phya4 is literally disgusting !!!!!!! so i seriously advice you lot to start revision for phya4 as soon as you start the new academic year, dont get complacent with phya4, its on a different level seriously !!! people in my year who got 280 and above out of 300 in AS, got D's in phya4. do not underestimate it seriously !!

    It does, but I said that about AS physics at the end of GCSEs.

    Oh crap. Fun times ahead, I guess
    What does PHYA4 consist of?
    Out of interest, what are the other optional options?

    For AQA, there are 2 choices. Astrophysics and radioactivity physics.
