A level PhyscicsWatch
Content difficulty: 6/10
Exam difficulty: 9/10
The physics courses now are designed so that you don't need to take maths to do physics so you can take that into account. I'm just finishing my AS year in physics and personally I don't find the content hard to understand, it's just the exams (on the new spec) are horrible
The exams are what make your life miserable (in case of Physics here). Especially Paper 1(multiple choice). Its "clearly" designed in a way that you need to have loads of practice and good grasp on even smallest concepts. Some questions are so hard, they don't even make proper sense at first attempt. So, if anyone does plan to take AS Level physics, i suggest finish the book quickly and get going with the past papers asap!
