I got an A for my AS for physics, and I'm not sure if I should continue it for A2. Currently, I study Maths, Economics and DT resistant materials and I love them all.
Anyone have any idea what physics at A2 is like? More calculations? More knowledge? More written responses?
Should I continue Physics at A2? Watch

I currently do a physics degree and I would suggest that if you enjoy physics then it is a good idea to continue. The theoretical side at A2 does get a little bit more complex but it's still feels like doing the AS just different topics. There were more calculation if I remember correctly but these are easy to remember and use. From past papers when I did them there usually was one large essay questions like something about the big bang. I remember just bullet pointing answers to get a few marks so I could focus on getting all of the other questions done correctly as these are usually all calculation, drawing a diagram or a one line answer. Even to this date going into my third year at university I don't like large essay questions, in my exams I either leave them to the end or just answer them with the purpose to get a few marks and make sure I get everything else correctly. My current University average is 84% across all modules.
When it comes down to choosing, Choose what you are going to enjoy and think about your future first like what degree do you plan on doing after college. A levels are a huge player when it comes down to degree courses. If you are unsure about what degree to do then think about what you want to do in the future as a job, or what sector you would like to work in as this will help determine what degree course you pick.
