    Which one is easier? I enjoy both and need one as fourth option. Also taking Maths, Further Maths and economics, and hope to do a degree in economics or maths and economics.

    Thanks.

    I've always found physics more difficult than chemistry but that might just be cos we do the worst course ever In theory, if you like the mechanics side of maths then you should take physics as there's a lot of crossover

    "easier" Is entirely subjective, but considering that you are taking maths and further maths I think it's safe to assume you are a fairly numerical person. In which case do physics, it is also the subject that fits in better with maths and further maths. All this is assuming that you like them equally, if you like chemistry more do that (this may be cliche but picking the subject(s) you like is definitely more beneficial).

    Overall I'd say they're about the same in difficulty but depending on the person one can be much easier than the other.

    Yeah, i heard there was crossovers, hopefully that makes the physics easier!

    Yeah maths is my strength but i do perform better at chemistry

    Which do you guys think is more useful?

    Definitely go for physics, the mechanics modules in maths complement it well.

    Physics as it is easy to do well in especially if you were to do mechanics in your maths

    Chemistry because it's the central science! If you're not planning on specialising in a science later on, I definitely suggest Chemistry because it will give you a fair understanding of both Physics and Biology! Basically Chemistry prepares you init.

    It's entirely up to you, but personally I would pick Chemistry, because you say you perform better in it. Whilst physics is very numerical, I would say that since you're doing further maths alongside maths, choosing chemistry will give you a 'greater base' of study.

    But again, go for what you think is best.
