    I have chosen:

    Economics
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics

    I am not too keen on physics because I really love the businessy-side to things and am looking forward to Economics and I love maths..

    BUT I am not to keen on physics...I don't know, I'm not very interested in it (maybe because I do not fully understand it), but many people recommended it me to take it as it is much easier if you do Further Maths..

    I was thinking to change it to geography but I don't like the physical side AT ALL, but I LOVE the Human side to geography?

    And the thing is, if I am suddenly not interested in accounting or becoming an economist, then physics could be my backup to become an engineer!

    I don't know... I think if I worked hard, then I would find it interesting! And I definitely will work hard on it next year!

    What do you guys think?

    Physics is easier than FM but i dont think you can become an engineer without a passion for Physics. What possible career paths are you looking at? Is math your favorite subject?

    lol, just kidding.

    It depends, do you enjoy physics and GCSE level? Please bear in mind it's more intense at a-level.

    I'd say for engineering, it would definitely assist in first year when all science subjects are studied to get everyone on a level playing field.

    But if you think you can handle it, good luck and i would suggest finding out your college/sixth-form exam-board for physics and watching youtube videos related so that you get a feel for the subject.

    If the exam board is something other than OCR then do it!!!

    If you are uninterested in physics, DO NOT TAKE IT! The course has horrible content which is dull enough as it is, but it is even worse if you don't like it. I took it because I was good at it, but I was lucky enough to be able to drop it after realising that I was not going to do well when it mattered (I was getting straight As in class) because I had no interest in it at all, and I couldn't study it.

    Don't fall into the trap of taking something just because you are suggested to do so, or because you're good at it, because it is really not an easy path.

    If you aren't keen on it you shouldn't do it.
    You are just gonna struggle.
    I am not sure about the how the new specification is but some of the stuff that I have done was really boring and if you find it boring you are gonna find it difficult.

    A2 is a lot harder than As is. You can't say how hard it is because you haven't even done your AS exams yet, so there's no point you telling everyone how 'easy' further maths is if you don't know
