I am considering doing A level Physics but am not planning on doing Mathematics A level, can I still study the physics course or will it become too hard?

I did A level Physics without A Level maths and managed to scrape an A so you do not need maths.You do have to be mathematically competent though, as a lot of the Qs rely on you using some sort of mathematical formula or possibly deriving some form of equation. I'd say that if you got a B or above in GCSE maths and are comfortable rearranging equations you should be ok.

The only new mathematical concept I was introduced to was the natural logarithm which is pretty easy to understand and use ( well in A level physics anyway) once you've practised a few Qs.

Yeah I know a person a year below me who does A level physics with out A level maths (he's year 12). It is possible you may just need to work harder on some areas than people who also do maths A level, such as radians and logs. Esp logs if you are thinking of doing A level physics log10 and e are going to be things you see a lot in equations
