    probably not a good idea to do it

    i got an A in my actual physics GCSE but i was sorta predicted a B and my A was really scraping it close to the a/b boundary

    tbh atm i'm finding things fairly difficult but that's just me, however if you do want to chose this then be prepared to work very hard to get a decent grade.

    you'll need more opinions than just mine

    I did a level physics and it's quite hard. I got a a in science at gcse and struggled a lot with it but I wasn't really focused either so don't think that helped.

    Physics is extremely hard, and imo, the hardest out of all the sciences at A Level. (Biology, Chemistry, Maths)

    There isn't a lot of content, like in Biology, but the whole style of the questions is completely different to GCSE. Most people in my Sixth Form drop it at AS, because they don't enjoy it. (I'm certainly planning on dropping it.)

    I'd gotten an A* at GCSE, yet I still find it really difficult and am gonna have to work so hard to try and get an A. There is a lot of
    mechanics in it, so you need to be good at Maths, or at least able to grasp the concepts that you're taught.

    That being said, there are also loads of people who enjoy it. I think that sort of depends on what class you're in too. (I got the boring classmates.)

    So yeah, it's hard. If you take it, good luck!

    It's very hard. Most people who get A* and A at physics GCSE still stuggle to get the same grades at a level. Id recommend that you don't do it unless you have a burning passion to study it.
