    Hi

    I'm doing maths bio and physics at the moment at as level.

    I've had a few physics lessons (OCR) and I find it a bit hard. I don't know whether I should drop it and take chemistry on instead, but I'm not sure how hard it will be compared to physics. The chemistry exam board is edexcel

    physics is definitely the hardest science subject but if the career and university course you are wanting to do after Alevels wants you to do physics then take it and try as hard as you can to make it work. if you don't need physics then definitely go for chemistry

    See if you can actually drop it and still have an AS grade because at my school if you drop it, you get nothing.
    Also A levels are meant to give you a little challenge, if you find it hard then don't be shy to ask your teachers for help.

    If I continue physics then maybe engineering, if not computer science. Both courses interest me

    If your genuine interest is in Computer science then drop the Physics and do Chemistry or some IT related A level, but if you heart is in Engineering then stay with Physics, although Physics is of great of benefit for both courses

    Mehrdad has summed up what I wanted to say, but in addition I'd like to point out that I have seen many claim that Chem is harder than Physics. Obviously it's down for dispute but hey.

    Think about your passion for the future and what will enable you to get there,
