When studying Physics at university, how much am I required to memorise?
Is it a lot (like a biological science) or does the degree rely more on mathematical capabilities?

I don't recall having to remember much apart from the properties of subatomic particles.

This depends a lot on the lecturer. The more sensible ones will give you the longer equations or ask you to show the derivation and focus on the ability to apply them.

Some however did expect us to remember large numbers of equations or ones with many terms so it was a case of being able to derive them or memorise them.
