Is this a mistake ? because i don't anything related to chemistry as I haven't studied in the past and also i am not interested at all. I read on forums that I could choose one from Physics/Chemistry but in this list it says that both are mandatory... please help me out on this as i am really confused now

Could you tell me, how easy did you find the foundation year, also i don't know neither physics nor chemistry, which one do you think i will find easier? and also how many hours did you put in your studies at home per day?
It's difficult to say which you'd find easier out of physics and chemistry as I don't know you, I've also never taken chemistry beyond GCSE so I don't really know what it's like. If you're going into Computer Science, I'd say that physics is perhaps a bit more relevant. I hadn't taken physics before and I actually found the foundation year units easier than the maths ones.
I have no idea how many hours per day I studied on average, I'm bad at structuring things like that so it varied wildly. I pretty much always had a piece of work to do or test to prepare for but they weren't usually that difficult so I didn't have to spend overly long studying at home. As I said above, it can be easy to let things get on top of you if you procrastinate or don't turn up to lectures etc. but if you avoid those sorts of things, you'll be fine. For what it's worth, I found the foundation year significantly easier than my first year of engineering.
